Pleasant amber ale. Something about it seems a bit lacking but im not sure what. Pleasant though.

Brown/amber pour. Big offwhite head. Aroma is toffee and light hops. Flavor has some caramel, hops and cardboard. Finishes weak. Not so memorable.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2006
Bottle... GABF RB Tasting ’06... Cloudy orange ale with tons of small, black floaties and a mid-sized, wispy, off-white head. The nose is of caramel, milk chocolate, vanilla and light diacetyl/butterscotch. Some butterscotch in the sweet flavor as well, along with caramel and toasted nuts. Medium-bodied and watery with moderate carbonation. Sweet, then astringent finish. Kudos to DenverLogan for sharing the bottle!

adnielsen (10427) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 6, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2015 Re-rate. On tap at Trailhead Fort Collins. Burnt orange, clear appearance with a lasting frothy tan head. Aroma has biscuit, caramel, bread, and grass. Not overly assertive aroma. Moderately high bitterness. Moderate low sweetness. English ale yeast apparent in the flavor along with biscuit and minerals. A touch boozy. Some leaf / herbal hoppy notes. Not all that malty. I drink a few of these each year but it’s awfully boring and forgettable.

Bottle that my dad picked up for me in Glasgow. Consumed 02.01.11 Pours amber good clarity, smooth beer, not so rich or flavourful nonetheless a decent beer. A touch of citrus and caramel but aside from this I get little else, still it’s a pleasant sipper. A6 A5 T6 P3 Ov12 3.2

BVery (9298) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 5, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2011 Tap at The Muddy Pig in St. Paul, MN. Clear red amber pour with a clingy white head. Good lacing. Aroma of caramel malt and slightly pruny/fig/fruit. Medium palate. Taste is bready caramel malt almost exclusively - mild notes of fig. Nice brew.

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Pours deep red with white head, aroma has notes of toffee, caramel, slight cocoa, earthy spice and a touch of grass in there as well. Fairly smooth taste with some sweet caramel, toffee, and biscuit notes, went into some bitter grass, earth, finishing slightly sweet and dry. Not bad, a bit weak overall but tastes were nice.
