This is a fine beer with excellent gravity and a good kick.

yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - APR 8, 2012
Tap @ Brewpub one summer. Had this along with the light, was familiar with Anchor at the time so went for this. Flavor had some light malt and a faint bitterness, clean, reminiscent of a pilsner bitterness. Balanced and drinkable and not heavy at all. Wish they would make this again.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 3, 2007
Tap at blind tiger. Pours a ligth amber with a foamy sticky off white head. Aroma of lightly toasted malts, some caramel, ligth toffee, and nice lightly floral and metallicy citrus hops. Good crisp malt flavor- light cookie, caramel, and toast with a good clean bitter finish. Similar to Anchor, but more body, and flavor.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 31, 2007
Draft at SPH - Amber, white creamy head with perfect lacing. Nose was fruity citric-like and slightly peppered. Flavor was well balanced with a nice hop bittereness getting just enough sweet malt to round it off. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry finish. Good session ale...

beerbill (3377) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2007
Currently on tap at the SPH. Pours a clear medium gold with a medium/large biscuit white head that lasted through most of the glass. Very light aroma of grapefruit and a touch of malt. The flavor is initially a bit malty with some light pine at the finish. As the beer warms, the pine flavor is more pronounced and the finish becomes more bitter. In addition, the bitterness lingers for perhaps 10-15 seconds beyond the swallow, which I wasn’t crazy about. OK, but nothing special.

On tap at the brewery - a nice idea of a steam beer. Very dry, yet malty flavor and aroma. Brightly flavored. Looked great: yellow body, foamy head. Easy to drink, and went very well with my lunch. The lager qualites really come through on this.

notalush (4835) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 29, 2006
On tap at the pub - another great session beer from these guys - lively carbonation, woody, spicy and dry throughout - the finish starts dry and hoppy, but then a lasting, gentle, sweet maltiness lingers on the tounge, leaving some nice fruity esters behind it - I could drink this all day long and not get tired of it.

mkobes (2140) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - JUL 7, 2006
On tap at HDG. Copper in color with a nice off white head. Fruity and malty aroma. Pine, earthy and citrus hops. Nutty toffee flavor. Citrusy notes. Medium bodied. Finish is dry. Nice beer.

egajdzis (5312) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2006
Poured a copper color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, citrus fruits, grassy hops, toffee, and some light lemongrass. Taste of toffee, was somewhat earthy, with nuts, citrus, and light pine, with a dry finish.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2006
Tap at SPH. Pale amber colour, thin white head. Earthy hop aroma, maybe goldings or fuggles. Lean malts, a bit grainy. Low esters. As the beer warms the bitterness really kicks up. Well-hopped (tastes like 60 IBUs) but not good hops. Low aroma, kind of harsh and astringent. Not for me at all.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Mellow gold color. Subdued fruits and slight bitterness in aroma. Some apples and berries. Taste is hop-centric. Heavy resin notes, light citrus, some grassy-ness. The piney taste isn’t doing it for me. Bitter aftertaste. Dry finish.
