pours amber with a one finger off white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of toasted malts, pine, caramel, citrus, sweet malts, and tropical fruits. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty nice amber ale that is the best stone beer for non-hopheads.

A little brother to their Arrogant Bastard Ale. Provides a full malt forward flavour without the kick. All the better when having another!

Drank from a bottle at home. Good beer with a strong taste. The taste is bitter and sweet in a malty way.

Bottle. Dark amber colour with medium head. Aroma is tropical fruits, hops, malt, citrus, grassy and bit sweet. Taste is citrus, grapefruit, sweet tropical fruits, piney hops and malt. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Citrusy and grapefruity finish with hops and hint of rye. My bottle was almost outdated, so I can’t even imagine, how good this tastes fresh. In this ABV absolutely stunning!

355 ml bottle. Clear coppery colour, thin off-white head. Tropical fruity aroma with notes of citrus, caramel and pine. Flavour of grapefruit and resiny hops, some toasted malt in the background. Pretty good.

Mjp12 (284) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2014
Thick light tan head masks the aroma, but there is a mass of flavour here for a 4 abv beer. A really interesting beer.

jstonerock24 (106) - Englewood, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Aroma is of caramel malts and pine hops. Flavor is more of the same with a nice hop bitterness for low alcohol beer. Finishes with a sweet malty backbone. A lot of flavor packed into this beer for it being light.

Bottle at home. Pour is roasted amber with a frothy tan head and great lacing. Juicy grapefruit, citrus, bread, sweet caramel, grass, and toffee in the aroma. Taste is fruity hops, weed, toasted bread, caramel, straw, and husk with a neodymium bitter fruity finish. Light body with high carbonation. Decent session beer.
