4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a rich, copper color with a medium head, quickly gone. Nice lacing. Sweet, malty aroma. Tastes rich and full-bodied, especially for a beer so light in color. Smooth and light on the tongue, lightly bitter in the finish. Very pleasant, very smooth ale. Highly drinkable.

Can. Typical nitro can pour. Amber color with a heavy cream colored head. Light pale malt aroma with a hint of hops and iron as it warms. Smoother feel, but yet quite watery. Smokey dry caramel flavors. Head clings to glass. Dry and flavorless finish.

I don't know if it's just me, but this one had a rather skunky smell and not much taste. I remember trying it once before and thinking it wasn't too bad, so I'll re-rate next time I try it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from the bottle, the first thing is a rather nice aroma. Can't really pinpoint it but somewhat fruity. The colour is a reddish brown, nothing special, but a nice tan head with the tinyest bit of lacing.
First impressions not pleasant, but I'm unfamiliar to the style so I stuck on. And I'm pleased I did. It's a smooth a pleasant beer, not as sweet as I expected, but surely some sweetness. The slightest bite to the aftertaste and hints of copper? Not sure really, need more experience with the style.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2008 Canned. Great orange copper color. Short head. Smooth, a little sweet, but balanced with a light bitterness. Not sure if the recipe has improved, but I’ve found this to be more of a regular buy.

A very light golden amber color in the pour with no head, but some nice lingering lacing later on. A very strong aroma with some flavors very reminiscent of blended scotch. Very thin and light in the mouthfeel, but very smooth and easy to drink. A nice bitterness in the aftertaste, very balanced.

A great beer, good strong flavour and nice golden colour. Caramel kind of flavour that lingers for ages.
