12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy auburn - a touch of brown with highlights of copper. The head pours thick and soft, and it leaves tons of lace on a pint glass. The aroma is a pleasant mix of fruit, caramel and bready malts, and herbal, perfumy hops - almost spicy.. The flavor starts similarly - a soft, slightly toasted, slightly fruity, bready malt flavor with a touch of herbal English hops. A little bit of dark toast and caramel enters on the sides of the tongue about halfway back. Here also enters a touch more of spicy, dry hops. The finish is well-balanced and somewhat dry with a blend of light, delicate malt with just a drop of earthy hops

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured cloudy, copper/reddish in color; beige small head. Aroma is mostly malts, caramel and some floral/grass notes. Taste is also sweet, malty, some grain notes, and some citrus notes... Drinkable and quite enjoyable; very decent beer.

Draft at Milk Boy. Slightly hazy orange copper pour that started with a good foamy white head. Pleasant medium-dark malts with just enough hops for balance. Tinged blood oranges. Nice juicy dark amber fruit. Black plums. Wattered raisins. Wood planks. Makes a pretty good session beer. Has been a bit of a go to.

pured into small tasting glass a red copper color with small head and little lace. Aroma was malt heavy but light, toasted malts and caramel and a bit of toffee. average CO2 and a fairly thin body. Taste was malty, caramel, a bit of hay. some bitterness but not huge. Not bad, enjoyable and a fairly good ESB.

12 oz bottle at home from backlog notes. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor had caramel malt, lightly roasted, lightly floral and fruity with some balancing earthy hop bitterness in the finish. Worth trying once.

Pretty good for style. Citrus in taste with barley edge. Pours dark amber with good head and lacing. Finishes with light bitterness, good barley presence all the way through. On tap at DC Summerfest.

From BA review on 2-4-12 - Served in a pint glass. Appearance – Pours a reddish-copper color. The head is small and quick to fade giving very little lacing. Smell – A bit of sweet malty breadiness and caramel is mixed with a very light floral hop aroma. The aroma is nothing too potent and quite subdued. Taste – A somewhat biscuit maltiness first meets the tongue. There is a bit of sweetness; mainly caramel in character but mixed in with a bit of of grassy hoppiness. The hopiness increases to some degree with the loss of much of the sweetness. At the end there is a lingering more bitter malt mixed with hop flavor. Mouthfeel – Light and rather crisp with an average carbonation level; both of which lend to it being very easy to drink, yet sorta simple and boring. Overall – Its rather average in my opinion. I would have it if offered to me, but wouldn’t go out of my way to get it.
