Pretty good amber ale with aromas of oak and honey. Weak head but great taste compensate for the rest. A little bitter taste but pretty sweat also. I would recommend it.

Pours a very hazy copper color. My pour had no head at all. Aroma is weak malt and maybe some yeast. Sweet, malty with a hint of hop bitterness.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 4, 2011
Pours amber with a decent lingering head. Smells of sweet malty caramel. Full nectar with excellent carbonation. A good amber with a defined malty sweetness and a good hop backbone.

BroSpud (1693) - , Massachusetts, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Bomber. Meh ... Nothing great here. I failed to detect the big hoppy flavor stated in the description and instead found it to be more of a sweet malty brew with little to no character.

BeerandBlues2 (9690) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear amber with an average, frothy beige head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (biscuit, hay, cookie, toast), average hops (floral, earthy, herbal), and average esters (apple/pear). Flavor is heavy malt (biscuit, hay, cookie, toast), average hops (floral, earthy, herbal), and average esters (apple/pear). Medium body, warmth, and carbonation, light creaminess with a dry and biting finish. Overall, a well-balanced beer that hides its alcohol well.

MaBeer1972 (1309) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 11, 2010
A light clear amber with a big frothy head and good carbonation. Flavors of light sweet malts and hops, with a little spicy bite. Smoothe drinking. Well made.

Amber pour. Nose is malty and grainy as hell. Corn, barley. Flavor is sweet, corn, cardboard, and lightly hoppy. Ok.
