phaleslu (9019) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 12, 2011
12 oz. bottle from The Royale. Pours a cloudy pale amber color with a small eggshell white head. The aroma is faint, but I can pick out notes of English malts, dust, brown sugar, and overripe citrus. Flavor of English malts, grassy hops, dust, husky grains, wood, and a little bit of citrus. Light-medium bodied, with medium-high carbonation and a dry finish. Not a bad beer to start the night with.

DuffMan (9016) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 19, 2007
The featured "beer of the month" in an airport restaurant in Denver, shared with my wife while eating burgers. Nicely malty, semi-sweet, with a subtle spiciness (ginger, nutmeg) in the finish. Very nice.

3fourths (9014) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2003
Clear orange with large-bubbled tan head. Smells of smoky nuts and wood, but also a little medicine. Very carbonated and spritzy, with a nutty flavor throughout, prickly on the tongue, and finishes with a roasted caramel and nuts.

djd07 (8762) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle thanks to Kevin. Pours a clear amber with small frothy white head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is raisin and bready malt. Medium mouthfeel with light bready malt and lingering dry finish. Good.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2011
Bottled. A chestnut coloured beer with white bubbles. Sweet malts and hedgerow berry hops in the nose. The taste is quite similar. Quite hoppy but with sweet malts. Woody. Hints of chocolate. A bit of iron in the mouth. Average and unconvincing.

On tap at the brewery GABF 2012. Pours a light brown color with a medium white head. A big spicy nose with toasted malts. A sweet easy-drinking brew with spices, caramel and toast. Good.

Ibrew2or3 (7997) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Courtesy of sebletitje. Pours clear copper with solid gold edges and thin off white head. Looks tasty. The aroma is a hodge podge of maltiness coming from crystal malts, mild lightly roasted malts and sweet malts followed by fruity notes. The taste is fruity ester dominated with raisins, prunes and apricots. Beyond midway a bit of roasted malts and crystal malts help bring the taste to closure.

downender (7752) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2010
Bottle from Corks, Bristol. Deep amber in colour with a decent, off-white head. Sweet aroma of caramel and red fruit with a touch of leafy hop. Flavour had plenty more bready, sweet malts with a hint of spice and moderately bitter finish. Good.
