COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The most distinguishing characteristic of this amber ale is the perfect balance of hop, malt and roasted flavours. Deceptively smooth. Satan's Pony is our most popular selection.

Draught at Richmond Beer and Wine Festival 2000 or 2001. Amber color, decent head. Smooth, malt characteristic balanced well with hops. Somewhat crisp. Kept going back to this one.

A rather dark amber; I’d say more like dark brown. Roast malt dominates this beer. Not much hop presence. Smooth and easy drinking, but nothing really leapt out. Respectable, but short on excitement. On tap at the brewpub, Charlottesville.

Medium copper, small head. Smells and tastes malty and rich- smoked and burned, with not a bad flavor, and actually above average, but nothing extraordinary.

satan's pony may be a "workhorse" at the south street bar, but don't overload this fragile waif with expectations of solid character, 'cause it'll buckle. color is well told by it's name, and very little head survives the initial excitement of the pour. aroma of a fairly clean refrigerator: plastic, soap, maybe some damp greens and vague peachy grain; in short: mostly fresh and chilled updrafts reach the nose, but it's not abundantly aromatic. soft carbonation, and, as they say: "perfect balance of malt, hop, and roasted flavors". naturally that means balanced at the low end. papery bitterness, thin, watery. not bad, merely mediocre.

Celar copper body with off-white head. Aroma is light earthy. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, earthy. Light/medium body. An ale that could pass as an Oktoberfest.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2003
This beer was a dark tan color and formed a bubbly white head. Some trace lace was formed as it subsided. An aroma of malt and caramel. A flavor of malt and caramel with some sweetness in the finish. Not a bad beer, but not the best this place offers, but probably the coolest name, explaining it's popularity.
