scarletfire65 (968) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle at home. Aroma of caramel and crackers. The taste is about as one dimensional as a beer can get. Slightly malty, very little hop character. Has a crisp finish. I would classify it as an amber. Nothing offensive here.

decaturstevo (5159) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Gold pour with white head and lace. Aroma of earthy hops and caramel malt. Flavor mirrors aroma. Not much bitter just sweet malt. A not so fresh bottle I donít think. An ok beer

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - APR 27, 2013
Bottle from the 76 station in Davis, CA. Pours a copper color with a fruity aroma. No real hop present, but a easy to drink malty beer. Notes of caramel and overall sweet malt flavor. I was pleasantly surprised.

djd07 (3699) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear copper with small off white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is bready malt and caramel. Medium mouthfeel with raisin and metallic in the finish. Meh

Steverus0 (188) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - APR 24, 2013
A sweet pale ale that's sure to please most with its mellow hop character and up front barley. Abrupt rather than lingering, as I think the best pales are ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UncleKorm (850) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2013
Bottle poured a clear copper hue w/ a white head quickly diminishing to a thin cap and excellent lacing. Moderate aroma of malt and sweet caramel. Initial flavor is a light sweet with a moderate bitter finish of short duration. Tastes are bready malts, caramel and light citrus notes. Light to medium bodied, light carbonation, and a light dry finish. It is a good beer, just not a complex one. It is like a good piece of toast, you arenít going to get excited about toast, but sometimes when your eating you want a piece of toast to go with the meal.

Garbageman (443) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2013
From tap. Pours a ruby color with small head. Aroma was mildly malty and slighty sweet. Taste was caramel, sweet malt and slight bitterness. More sweet and not balanced. Mild for an ESB.

NikkTwist (1670) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2013
UPDATED: APR 28, 2013 Draft at Fado in Philly. Clear dark orange pour. Fluffy white head. Tons of lace. Mild toasted wheat flavors. Some caramel. Nice session beer but not very complex. Feels like a mild red ale. Decent looking, but way too bland.

Bottle. Aroma is malty with a bit of sweetness. Pours light amber colored with very little head. Very malty taste with caramel and fruit notes. Finishes smooth and dry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I donít see the point. Not terrible , but not noteworthy. I like the head, but the taste is kind of metallic. Donít know what to think.
