Tap. Pours nutty brown with thin, creamy off-white head; decent retention and some lacing. Aroma is caramel and cookie malt, almonds, floral hops, figs, and light earthy notes. Flavor is malt forward with some supporting dark fruit esters and faint hops; dry, semi-sweet finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

blipp (5830) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Draft. Pours brown with an off white head. Toffee sweet malts, light earthy notes, and a bready malty and toffee sweet finish. Not bad.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2006
Nitro... Mostly clear, deep amber ale with a, mid-sized, creamy, eggshell head. Malty, vineous aroma and flavor. A bit sweet and alcoholic. Toffee, vino sherry and a hint of butterscotch. Decently bittered, but the nitro eliminates much of the character of both the nose and taste. Medium to full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and light carbonation. Finishes a little sweet.

scottw86 (1089) - Maryland, USA - OCT 9, 2009
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.

dnstone (2127) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Light aroma. Goldish color with decent head. A run of the mill pale in my consideration.

Cask. Smooth, light brown, medium ale. Very soft carbonation due to cask. Nice drinkable ale.
