COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An incredibly drinkable ale, light in body but full of flavor. Oaky notes blend with the complex balance of malt and hops. This is a beer you can enjoy for the long haul.

I was very supprised by the color and flavor of this ale. I expected a much darker and stronger beer. Its a perfect caramel color with a very light flavor. Oaky flavor and a slight sweet taste. Its as it is described on the label. Something you can drink all day

A very mild ale out of two brothers. Has a nice oak barrel flavor to it. Smells oaky but is smooth to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a transparent copper with sticky off-white head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells of malt and light oak. Tastes like it smells with some hop notes. Average on the palate. Not bad for the style.

Patrickctenchi (4070) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Pours clear copper with a soapy, light tan head. Scent is minimal...caramel malt, wood, berries. Taste is lightly oaky-bitter, a bit of hop... Very, very mild and light. Pleasant.

I poured this beer from the bottle. The pour produced a dark amber body with a small head of white foam. Moderate hop notes, with faint hints of malt. Light weight, but full of flavor, with a heavy hand on the hop side. Goes down easily, though I not quite sure how much of session beer this would be. The bottle that I picked up at T-Birds might have gone past it’s date, since it was a little skunky, but not unpalatable.

Bottle, big ups to CanIHave4Beers. Pours rich amber. Nose of sweet malt, mild wood, and a weird plasticky thing going on that I just can’t shake. More pronounced on the taste. Smooth, light palate. Props for trying.

italarican (1484) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - AUG 6, 2012
On tap at some Brooklyn bar whose name escapes me. Pours a dark auburn with minimal eggshell head. Aroma had modest notes of nutty malt complemented by spruce. Light pine hoppiness is the key flavor with just enough nutty and caramel malts to keep it interesting. Balanced and enjoyable.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Light hazy amber with a quickly dissipating beige head and minimal lacing. Aroma of oak, malt, caramel, toffee, vanilla – very reminiscent of a barley wine, not bad for a mild ale. Taste doesn’t match that flavor though as it’s light and mild with oak, yeast, light caramel, and finishes kinda dry. Ok, mild as advertised.

Bottle as extra in trade. Aroma and flavor has slightly stronger than most sessions with some oaky notes. Pretty nice drinker. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - not much head, medium amber color, sweet malty aroma and flavor, can taste actual oaky notes too; not a bad beer at all
