CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2006
Pours a deep copper mahogany with a frothy off-white, nicely lacing-head. Lightly toasted caramel malty sweet aroma. Body starts with a short-lived sweetness with some nutty mildly earthy balance. Has a thinner drier toasty finish. A decent ale, but nothing spectacular.

Not too bad. Sweet, caramel-like body with a flatish and somewhat bitter finish. You keep expecting something more, but it doesn’t quite deliver.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 24, 2006
Given my fondness for history and Benjamin Franklin in particular and also given that I was right near the brewery at the time this one was released, I had to try it out. Pours copper/brown with a thin soapy head. Smells of molasses, some corn residue, and roasted malts. Taste is sweet with molasses, corn and some flaked oats dominating. No hop presence of note which is to be expected of this particular brew. Happy 300th birthday, Benjamin Franklin!!

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 13, 2006
22 oz bottle (also available in growlers). Dark, translucent maple-brown with a smallish but persistent off-white creamy head, lots of thick lacing...mild sweet nose offers honey and light toasty grains, molasses and raisins, bit of oak....malty body is fairly substantial, sweet, with hints of molasses again and corn syrup, a bit of herbal content towards the finish, light oaky-vanilla quality....nothing spectacular in my book but an above-average offering from this brewer and a decent winter quaffer.
