16.9 oz bottle to pint (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks solid; a transparent burnt-orange with white lacing. Smells doughy and a little bitter and skunky. Tastes like it smells, but not as prominent. Average on the palate. Meh.

Patrickctenchi (4840) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Slightly hazy honey-amber with an iced-tea-like head. Aroma is caramel malt, bread heel. Taste is much the same with a sllight bit of hop presence. Slightly vegetal tones, but not too off-putting. A decent little ale.

Attractive golden colour, thin white head. Light malty/hoppy nose, not a lot going on there....may be too cold! Good well balanced palate, soft malt, underlying hops...nice! Good brew!

RyanE (145) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2013
Amber, thin head. Fruity nose, some berries. The sweetness from the malt comes out. Not a lot of perceived bitterness. Prickly carbonation leads to a pretty good mouthfeel.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2012
Bottled 08/12/12. A copper coloured beer with a tiny white ring of head. A fruity beer. A bit rubbery and some of the flavours are a bit astringent. Obvious pasteurization. Not special.

DrSilverworm (8548) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 27, 2012
16.9oz bottle. Mostly hazy orange color. Thin white head. Decent lace. Medium body. Light hoppy malty flavor, little skunk. Smoother malty flavor. little skunk. Smoother carbonation. Light bitter taste. Little wierd bite. Aroma is maybe yeast, bread, light citrus hops. Little funky, hint of cheese maybe. Doughy might be a better way to put it. Not bad, honestly. But not for me..

Poured from 500ml bottle at a beer and cheese tasting at Gilly's in Rockville, MD. Hazy, orange-amber copper with off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of floral hops, grass, grain and malt. Taste of malt, grass, grain and floral hops. Medium/light body and medium/light carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rjkreid (191) - SCOTLAND - OCT 29, 2012
Toasty aroma with a spicy note which is reminiscent of a rye beer. The earthy flavours continue in the mouth with a spicy flavour which is harsh and vegetal. Notes of smoke in there as well. Rather fizzy as well which increases the buzzy burn of the spice. Quite unusual but also not particularly pleasant.
