COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full-bodied amber ale with a rich, smooth flavor, just the right balance of hops and notes of caramel and toffee.

Bottle. The pour was a medium brown with a yellow hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) frothy off white head that diminished to a thin layer of residue and lasted throughout creating some really good spotty sticky lacing. The aroma was of mild bread and grain malts, an herbal hop and a sweet earthy yeast with notes of toffee and caramel. The taste was lightly sweet and malty with just a mild hint of toffee at first and then got a little hop bite with a nice caramel note at the end. The flavor lasted a decent amount of time with a slight hoppiness left at the finish. Mouthfeel was just a bit above light in body with the texture being a bit watery and a tad dry with a lively carbonation. Overall a nice tasty Amber ale with a nice mild hoppiness to it. But it seems that everything I try from this brewer is quite tasty.

Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Light sweet malty aroma with toffee and toasty notes. The flavor has sweet and toasty malts with light floral hoppy notes. Not bad.

reggiedunlop (3227) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Pours a clear amber/ruby color with a medium lt tan head. Aroma is malty...lightly fruity with a very faint metallic note. Flavor is malty and earthy...almost like rye...with a faint spicy hop note that builds in the finish. Mouthfeel is light and decently lively and the finish dries out with some spicy/earthy hoppiness.

Bottles, Drafts, etc. Pours out a dark red color with a tan head. Smell is malty and has a bit of sweet fruit in the nose. Taste is smooth and easy to drink, not alot of hops present - no alcohol burn. Easy to drink, but not the best beer I have had in my life.

Bart (2939) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 28, 2011
Dark amber to light brown coloured beer with lots of carbonation and a small white head. Light herby malty hinted aroma. Medium to full palate. Finish is light roasted malty with some bitter hints. Longer light bitter flat ending with some malty and grainy touches. Medium .

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 13, 2011
12oz bottle: Pours a clear deep amber bronze with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Has a sweet toasty light caramel nose with a touch of piny, grassy hops. Starts with decent fullness and carbonation with some lightly sweet caramel and nutty flavors along with slight graininess before a drier bittersweet finish. Pretty true to style and drinkable, but could be a little cleaner and crisper.

Lubiere (10496) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2011
Cask in American Oak: A reddish amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, woody oak with faint caramel. In mouth, an astringent bad idea, wood chip, like licking paper, not good. 5-3-3-2-4

Cask conditioned in Applewood: Same colour. Aroma, light caramel malt with faint oaken notes. In mouth, a caramel malt with light wooden notes, lactic points, so-so 6-3-6-3-12

On tap at Twin City Brewfest, August 13 2011.

poured into glass from 12 oz bottle, amber color, thin head, nothing too special about the aroma or flavor, what little flavor it had reminded me of the sour bitterness of a heineken. not very pleasant.
