Extremely faint aroma of brown sugar. Brownish copper color. Metallic hops upfront with a cinnamon/brown sugar backbone. Overall, not a whole lot to say about this. It’s very basic and doesn’t bring much flavor to the table.

12oz bottle. Clear rusty amber with a small off white head. Aroma of caramel, fruity, toasty and lemon. Flavor is toasty malt, caramel, medium bitterness and some light ale esters. Medium to light body with soft carbonation. Great ESB, smooth malty and a balancing hop bitterness.

Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Tawny tea-coloured amber with an off-white head. Caramel and citrus hop aroma. Similar flavours on the palate with a lightly earthy quality. Quite nice.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Big malty character up front, breads, toffee. Slight hop character. There was a noticeable sourness to the beer. Not to bad.

Pours a finger of white foam on top a clear amber body. Nose is earthy. Medium carbonation. Chewy mouthfeel. Taste is balanced- caramel malts, light bitterness, and a sweet fruit finish. Sessionable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Darby's. abundant caramel and muddy nose, on a copper base. Taste roasty caramel malt, with a long semi-dry finish. Crispy in my mouth.

mrhoppy (1284) - Santa Clara, California, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Decent but nothing to make you say I want to try this again except the price $3.99. A good bitter but not very special. It tastes like their Radient ale tweaked to be a Bitter.

Bottle poured a clear reddish amber with a lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of carmel, earthiness and light cocoa. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, earthiness and light cocoa with a smooth dry moderatly bitter lingering earthy finish.
