CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 20, 2010
On tap at the brewpub: Clear copper orange with a stringy off-white head. Has a sweet toasty caramel nose with some light piny hop notes. Starts with good toasty caramel malty sweetness and a touch of light fruity complexity and earthy resiny bittering hops before a bittersweet finish. A pretty good brew that falls on the lighter side of old ales.

Had this on tap at South Street Brewery in Charlottesville, VA. Pours medium brown. Smelled malty, sweet. The flavor is lacking hops, giving it a very one-dimensional feel. Mostly malt, a little bit of spice, and a mild alcohol flavor. Not a bad offering from this brewery, but I am largely unimpressed with South Streets offerings.
