COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Its call is intoxicating. An aroma that beckons you to pull up a stool and linger over its toasted malt character. Next, a deep kiss of liquid lust that will caress your tongue, thanks to an array of toasty Pale, Crystal (30 and 75), what, Carapils and roasted barley malts balanced by the subtle bite of Willamette and Fuggle hops. Itís a brew that will seduce your heart, mind and palette.

Really enjoyed this beer. Had a nice nutty malty taste with a little sweetness and very little hop presence, also had a nice aroma, no head.

Sampled at the Richmond Gathering XII. Acidic, stale spicy hops, huge carbonation. This was pretty damn bad actually.

Onslow (1210) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Pour from 11.5 oz stubby bottle. Amber brew with two fingers of off white head. Aroma of light grains and a little metallic hoppiness. Flavor is nice - medium maltiness, slightly sweet, finish has a slightly sour hops bite with cheesy overtones. Not bad but not great.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2011 I had this a while ago, and I wasnít as impressed as this time around. Glad I gave it another shot! Really well balanced amber with nice hop and malt.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 29, 2010
Draft at the hotel bar at RBSG. Somehow chose this over Founders Pale Ale, 2-Hearted, or Oberon. A mistake I shall rue to the end of my days. Pours clear amber, thin skim of foam. Head isnít persistent, and there isnít much here in the way of lacing either. Nose is spicy, with basic earthy hops, and a horrible metallic character. Flavours are muted hops, sweet caramel malt, and hot molten metal, God it sears the tastebuds with awfulness.
