Light aroma. Goldish color with decent head. A run of the mill pale in my consideration.

GT2 (9411) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 12, 2009
On tap at Rams Head Tavern in Annapolis, MD. Pours a hazy brown with a thin tan head that leaves crazy lacing. Big soy sauce aroma with some roasted nuts. Taste is soy sauce, biscuit, major English hops presence, some raspberry tart, big fruit juice sweetness. A bit of nutty bitterness at the end. Drying mouthfeel. 7.5% well hidden. Strange but nice.

On tap. Poured a dark brown/amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is grassy with lots of spice. Taste is very spicy with some good caramel flavors. Some citrus with malts and nuts. Too much carbonation. I would have enjoyed this more, but I thought there were too many spices that detracted from the other good flavors.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 4, 2009
On tap at the brewpub on 9/9/09: Pours a transparent dark amber mahogany with a thin, spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of sweet toasty dark caramel malts with some nutty character. Starts with some dark malty sweetness and some caramel toffee and light fruity tartness before a drier bittersweet finish. A decent brown ale.

Dogbrick (10889) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a murky dark amber-brown color with a thin and compact off-white head that burns away steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Sweet caramel malt in the nose along with a bit of citrus fruit. Medium, smooth body with flavors of malt, toffee and mild hops plus some roasty notes. The finish is soft and malty with a sweet aftertaste. Above average overall.

keepersj12 (3045) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2009
Very well done. Nice dark amber with a good head. Aroma of malt, hops, maybe some nuttiness in there. Flavor is sweet malt with a nice hop balance. Dry finish.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Draft - Pratt Street Ale House (formerly the Wharf Rat). Dark amber, thin creamy white head. Soft toasted nut and vanilla cream tones warm to hints of milk chocolate. Well balanced as warm brown toasty notes ride soft toffee chocolate swirls. A light hop bitterness rounds the malt well. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A well made rendition....

Dark copper brown with a fizzy tan head. Faint malty aroma. Crisp citrus malt and molasses taste.

TheCaptain (613) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2008
Draught at the Wharf Rat in fells point. Clear amber brown body with small off white head. Mildly sweet hop malt aroma. Malt and nuts on the pallet with a smooth richness. Slight caramel nut malt bitterness towards the end, flavorful! Quaffed this on a hot summer day trudging around Fells point with Death with a K and the wife and really liked it. Looking forward to getting down there again this year.

boto (2062) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - DEC 28, 2007
Draught in Inner Harbor location: This one pours a clear, light brown color. There was a small off-white head on it. The aroma was a bit milder than expected. There was some caramel malts, as well as a touch of nuttiness. The taste is a bit better. It has a rich, malt taste. There was some nuttiness, as well as some fruits in the background. Not sweet at all. Smooth and well balanced. Nice.
