Tried this with a sampler at the brewery. Pours a slightly cloudy brown with a medium head. Aroma of malt with a bit of fruit sweetness. Taste is very good. Somewhat dry with malt and just a touch of hops. Easy to drink.

On tap at OBX Brewing Station. Clear copper in color with a small white head and a little lacing. Rather faint aroma of caramel and nuts. Not too much going on really. The flavor is caramel malt, nuttiness, and cardboard oxidation. Not very exciting. Medium-bodied with average carbonation. This beer did not really impress me overall, and is probably the worst beer I’ve had from OBBS.

Nice malty and caramel notes with a bit of spice, too. Pretty simple but easy to drink and nothing offensive. Solid beer.

jsquire (3345) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2010
On tap at the pub. Clear amber color with a small off white head that left sticky lace on the side of the glass. Nose of dusty grains with some nuttiness. Flavors of apple fruitiness, peaty earthiness and a subtle bitter finish. Tastey beer but not that interesting.

Part of my brewery sampler and pretty light for an alt (American Amber?) with some hops in there but nothing aggressive.

Dusty amber pour with a minimal white ring. The nose is subdued, with a touch of fruit to the malty-ish nose. This is a lighter, more aerated version of their ESB. It has a light malt front through mid-palates, then the yeast kicks in the finish, supplying a decent sour fruit (but not citrus). This is followed by a light lingering bitter. The mouthfeel is light, and a bit thin for traditional style, but it does feel decently put together and has character. Nothing to write home about, but also nothing to scoff at.

Nice light beer. Dry finish. Very easy to have a few of these. Good for a hot evening like tonight.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2007
Straw color - a little hazy with a slight fluffy head. Aroma is lightly sweet with a hint of lemon. FLavor is rather dull and somewhat watery. Finish is dry & clean with a slight hop presence at the end. It’s ok, nothing special or distinctive - and may be a little out of style.

Also had this one as "Golden Eye Alt" (assuming they’re the same) on tap at the brewery. MIld and light. Easily drinkable and somewhat flavorful.

Had this one on draught in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, called "Golden Eye Alt" now. This was excellent. Dark yellow with hops in the nose, refreshingly pale in character, with heavy hops and green grapes. Dry, but delicious.
