12oz bottle pours filtered tawny brown. Nose of apple juice malt, faint bread crust, some toast and light spices. Flavor is much the same, overall very plain and simple but at the very least it lacks any glaring defects, so itís drinkable without being memorable. Clean, malty, a little red apple and toast in the finish, but quite simple. Simple can be good, simple can be downright delicious, but in this case simple is just simple.

Another Starr Hill brew where part (or all?) of the output comes from Old Dominion. Deep gold colour. Mild malt aroma. Dry malt flavour. Slightly smoky. Thereís a touch of hay, but the hops are very muted. OK, but it didnít really get my mojo working. On tap at the Starr Hill Brewery.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2009 12 ounce bottle from the brewery. Pours a golden color with a medium sized white head, average head retention and decent lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet graininess with some fruity citrus notes. Taste is toasted malts with the same fruitiness. Iíve had some infection issues with this one, but this bottle fortunately passes muster and makes for a not too interesting, but drinkable brew.
