Pours a slightly amber gold with a medium, off-white head, lacing minimal. Aroma of hops, malt, pine, and grass. Flavor is similar with the addition of bread. Not bad, but nothing special.

Clear gold under a thin white head. Nose is biscuity sweet with a touch of toffee and light floral hops. Delightful nutty toffee start with a lightly bitter grassiness on the finish. Hoppy and nutty sweet. Exceptionally balanced.

Tap. Pours a mostly clear copper body with a foamy off-white head that fell to a wispy film. The nose is pretty light on the hops, less than the Golden Ale that was on tap. Some light caramel malt. The flavor is better though, some light husky caramel malt, finishes a touch grainy, a light lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with some sticky resiny hops on the finish, fine fizzy carbonation. Decent enough, but the aroma hops were a little weak.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Uncertain if this is an amber, or pale based on label, WTF?
Review date: 10OCT11
Bottle date: unk says 210B on the label, maybe (July, week 1ish?)
A: Pours a hazy dark amber ale with a finger of caramel cream which falls quickly to a broken sheet of the same. Spotty lace is weak. (2.5)
S: Smells like caramel malts, sweet. Some earthy hops, and toasted sugar (3.5)
T: Oxidized malts, water, an alkaline tone, and some bitterness. Unimpressive. (2)
M: Thin (for either style) with moderate carb. Dry finish. (2)
O: I am not impressed and not surprised I’ve never seen this on tap anywhere (2)
Serving type: bottle
