Simply the best session type beer that I have ever had. Only if it was available in Missouri...

Amber/caramel in colour. Aroma’s of toffee and caramel. High sweetness and a dry hop bitterness in taste.

knights97 (98) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 29, 2010
Pours to a dark, amber body, a bit carbonated for a stone but this has a strong hoppy, taste to it, the only down side to this is the last lingers. A step away from being a IPA

sistinas (93) - Mountain View, California, USA - MAY 30, 2006
Pours a clear dark orange color with a decent-sized head. Smells of caramel and maybe some butterscotch, tastes like hops, citrus, hops, caramel, and some hoppity hops. Finishes dry and leaves a pretty bitter taste in my mouth - not something I could drink all night.

craven5000 (92) - Westville, Indiana, USA - JUL 9, 2004
A dark reddish amber pour that produced a tan head that was both big and thick. Smooth at first, then the hoppy bite comes through. A light medium body. It wasn’t anything special but it wasn’t bad either.

Hopgeek (90) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 7, 2004
12oz bottle - Ruby/amber color and makes a small white head. Aroma is malty, sweet with citrus hoppiness and lightly roasted. Taste starts out with a hoppy spice and finishes with a roasted malt character. Nicely balanced. Thin and smooth palate.

Deep, dark ruby/chestnut brown color with dark golden orange hues. Smells like some bitter pine hops. Tastes like pine hops, not super bitter, quickly followed by roasted malts.
