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.

Rich malt aroma, hint of grassy floral hop aroma, some caramel richness..white tight head with good lacing that lasts. Flavor is off....had an astringent malty finish with as hop bite...mouthfeel is medium with an astringent bite.

From a bottle. Aroma is spicy and moderate. Flavor is fruity, sppicy, and just a little bitter. Canít believe they were able to pack this much punch and complexity into a 4.2 abv session ale. A commendable job.

For being a session beer, this is one of the best Iíve had so far. Full of flavor and hop characteristics!

DrSilverworm (6013) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 15, 2012
12oz bottle, best by 6/10/12. Thin off-white head. Clear light brown / amber color. Some lace. Nice crisp carbonation, good dry texture. Very drinkable indeed. Nice, balanced malty and hoppy aroma, with a decent lightly oaky herbal malty-hop aftertaste. Nice mild bitter taste. Itís hard to find a good session ale, but Iím a fan of this one. Very satisfying and refreshing.

Scipio (682) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2012
Pours a clear amber with a rapidly diminishing white head. Aroma is decent and is bready and nutty. Taste contains caramel and bread, with some nutty and grain undertones. Nothing is very overpowering. Rather all flavors are subtle. Aftertaste is a bit earthy. Very well balanced, white palate is a bit thinner. But very easy to drink. This isnít your summer beer that you can drink all day. Rather, this is probably your autumn beer that you can drink all day.

JohnBruns (100) - Cissna Park, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Pours a clear light copper; not much head; very drinkable with grainy flavor, little sweetness and a Crisp finish. Surprised how much I liked it.

vmilaxer29 (400) - North Dakota, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Pours a clear copper with a small white head. The aroma is weak, with light bread notes, some floral hops, and a vegetal woodiness. Light on flavor, with cereal, what seems like Saaz hops, and light, fresh wood. Crisp finish, some bitterness. Not bad, very mild indeed.

Bottle, pours clean auburn w/ pillowy peaty head, juicy cereal aroma, nutty malt w/ a lightly tang, light-to medium-bodied, nice and easy-drinking

jgb9348 (4655) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 23, 2012
Amber coloured body with a bit of a copper hue and a very thin, half a centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of malt, metal, light sugars and very little else. Light-bodied; Mild vinegar and slightly sour pungent flavour with some malt, a few sugars and a watery, almost anchor small (used) flavour. Aftertaste is very bland, slightly sour and showing nothing of interest and perhaps only funky, crummy tastes. Overall, not very good and really not worth getting unless you like flavourless and simple beers. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Oliverís Beverage in Albany, New York on 16-November-2011 for US$2.95 sampled at home in Washington on 23-January-2012.
