COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our mild American ale is a great accompaniment to spicy and BBQ fare. One of our most popular offerings.

[Tap] Dark amber in color, with a thin, short lived head. Aroma of caramel and a little grain. Taste was mostly the same. A surprising hoppy kick in the finish, almost like a pale ale.

JaBier (4888) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2009
On tap at Brew Kettle. Clear reddish amber with a medium off-white head. Malty and bready aroma that is sort of sweet. Mostly malt flavor with a smoky hop finish.

This poured a nice red color with a white head. Aroma was mild malts and thats about it. Flavor was malty and a bit sweet with some bitterness but not much flavor provided by the hops. Just plain.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2008
Rating backlogged from my gathering back in October. Amber in color. Fairly non descript caramel aroma, maybe a touch of smoke. Taste has caramel and lightly toasted malts. Light citric hop presence. Light to medium bodied, easy drinking and smooth.

Glouglouburp (6023) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2008
In short: Some sort of soft Pale Ale. As drinkable as it is forgettable
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear dark golden body with a short-lived off-white head
In long: Malt profile is smooth juicy fruity caramel (rye?). Hopping is basic citrusy hops. Almost well balanced, although shifted a bit towards the malt. Medium carbonation, medium body. There really isnít much to say here. Nothing offensive but this is a basic low-profile American ale that I often get in little coutryside brewpubs. Copperhead Redneck Ale.

Tmoney99 (10650) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2007
Draft sample at brewpub. Poured clear golden color with a medium frothy white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Moderate sweet balanced aroma. Light to medium body with soft carbonation. Medium balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Average drinkable brew.

brownsFan (2) - USA - JUL 1, 2007 does not count
The beer leaves a bitter aftertaste. The beer is drinkable, but I donít think I would get again.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - APR 6, 2007
On tap. Pretty basic amber. Only interesting element is a tiny hint of smoke, beyond that, meh.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2007
Pours a clear, coppery body below a thin skin of white. Weak aroma with a malted presence and a light milkiness. Weak, lemony citrics late. Balanced flavor, finishes bitter. Sessionable, but Iím none too impressed.

Cliff (399) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2007
Bottle, poured a orangish brown (not red?) with a thin head. Some aromas of malts and a bit or earthy hops. Bland flavor, not much going on. I was told this was more of a hoppy red ale and that certainly wasnít the case. I found it to me quite bland and boring. Iíd pass on this one.
