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.

So this beer seems to be an oak-aged light beer, a beer so mild in flavor that it makes me wonder whatís the point of it all. Not much of a hop presence, yet the malts donít appear either, and the oak aftertaste comes across odd rather than appealing. Skip it.

Bottle from Beer Table Pantry, Grand Central. Medium head with medium duration. Color is brown. Aroma and taste are caramel, wood, malt, notes of fruits and hops. Light sourness from the french oak.

Draft at Rattle Ní Hum. Notes of roasted malt, vanilla, maybe a bit of oak if you use your imagination, light watery palate, clean and dry finish. Definitely a beer to drink all day long, so in that respect it was successful. A true session ale. But if you only have time for one or two, skip it.

RoyalFlushing (322) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Bottle poured an amber color, with a medium sized off-white head, and active carbonation. Aroma of floral notes, dark fruit, vanilla, and oak. Similar taste of berries, black currant, and malt. Very refreshing and drinkable with a smooth finish. Perfect for lounging on a summer day.

DiarmaidBHK (3162) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Draft at rattle n hum. Pours brown with an inch of white foam that leaves a lot of lacing. Not much on the nose. Taste has some tartness to it and it finishes with a tiny amount of citrus. Solid but not something Iíd put back all night.

jredmond (5029) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Draft at top hops with Linh and ken. Pours a deep mahogany body with no head. Aroma and flavor of grass, grain and vanilla. Bland, but somewhat drinkable.

Bottle. Poured a clear amber, with no head. Smell is caramel, bread, biscuit, and light citrus. Taste is much the same with touches of caramel, bread, rye, light lemon, and a lightl bitter finish. Thin body with lively carbonation. Refreshing on a hot summer day, but pretty straightforward and kind of boring. Meh.

Bottle. Woody caramel malt aroma. Clear copper with a thin off white head. Caramel malt flavor with a light oaky bitter finish. Light crisp, dry body. Very easy drinking malty beer.

[Bottle] Pours a clear golden caramel with a medium but dissipating off-white head. Aroma is sweetish caramel malts, enough chocolate malt to give a nice deep red color and toasty aroma, definitely some oak, and not a lot else. The flavor is nice and oaky, lightly sweet, toasted malts, and really not much else. The mouthfeel is surprisingly full, the carbonation is medium but soft. The finish is short, balanced, and just a slight hint of bitterness. I enjoyed this one, actually.
