Pours deep gold into an English pint. Off-white head with medium retention recedes leaving scant sheets to skim surface. Sourdough, toffee and caramel aromas. Soft with dark caramel and toffee upfront turning to hot yeast before the lasting bitter earth finish. Tastes much more than the 4.2% listed, and the 4.7% in the description.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Draught at Capone’s: Aroma of faint floral hops, malt, grain, cereal, and a hint of minerals. Poured copper/amber in color with a large, creamy, dense, rocky, off-white/tan head that lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Very good lacing. Flavor is light to medium bitter. Tastes of malt, hops, slight florals, grass, resin, slight grain, slight minerals, and wood. Medium body. Sticky, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, hop, wood, grass, mineral finish is dry. A nice session bitter.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - MAR 4, 2012
Clear orange with a great looking head. Aroma has light citrus and earthy hop notes, mild caramel malt, some toast. Flavor is much the same with noticeable, but thankfully restrained, bitterness. Easy going and quite refreshing. I wish this was easier to find.

Had at Belgian with Justin. Pour is a medium gold with little lasting head. Aroma is super earthy with lots of malts and almost a hint of almonds and chocolate. Flavor is bread, almonds, and malts. Not my style at all.

j12601 (6863) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 30, 2010
On tap at the Publick House. Pours a clear orange gold with a medium to large honeyed beige head. Light citrus, sweet malt and a touch of honey. Medium bodied, sweet and with some nice malt and a bit more earth citrus hop flavors coming through. Finishes crisp and earthy with a nice slow grapefruit bitterness. Tasty and sessionable.

yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - MAY 24, 2009
Cask. Had seconds of this one. Nice light, crisp and refreshing. Light sweetness with a solid bitter aspect but still light. Some floral and light citrus hops.

On cask at the Southampton Publick House. Pours a clear orange gold with a small white head. Aroma of grains, light hops and yeast. Taste is a bit watery with hints of grains and light hops.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Cask. Pours a honey amber body with a thin white head. Light fruity esters with caramel malt. Woody with an earthy hop bitterness. Floral hoppiness with a dull copper lingering. Smooth and enjoyable.

JohnQPublic (387) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 5, 2009
On cask. Pours hazy gold, bit of an orange tint. Fluffy (for cask) white head. Nose is lightly sweet pale malts, hops come through lightly with a bit of citrus. Hard to grab on to. Malt comes through as lightly sweet and a bit doughy, with a nice, firm, spicy, citrusy hop note. Finish is lightly bitter, with a bit of an odd corny aftertaste. May have been bad tap lines. Strange. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied, very mild carbonation, even for cask.
