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.

jgb9348 (5724) - 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 Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 16-November-2011 for US$2.95 sampled at home in Washington on 23-January-2012.

Better than expected. Dark pour, easy drinking Had a couple ipa’s before it so hard to put a good or bad stamp on it.

jcr (2576) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Bottle. Clear amber body with a frothy, off-white head, mostly lasting. Aroma of fresh-baked bread, toasted grain with hint of caramel. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Grainy taste that is slightly vegetative. Overly sweet. A little more bitterness would have balanced the malts better. Just OK.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2012
Bottle from New Beer Distributors, NYC, drank at The Dessie whilst packing for the next phase of the adventure...Pours an attractive, lazing copper capped with beige. Soft, raisiny aroma with hints of Curly Wurly and chestnut like a (proper, English) Brown Ale. Soft, integrated beer with a dominant milk choc caramel and raisin character; fruit cake notes. Very decent, understated brew- Brothers seem to know what they’re doing.

Pours a dark gold with thin white head. Aroma is slightly malty but pretty mild. Not much going on in the taste, but it is easy drinking!

HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Tap at the brewery. Amber pour, thin white head that leaves a little lace on the glass. Grain aroma followed by faint hop oils. Taste is mostly Euro hops. A hop heeds session beer!

Date: December 15, 2011 Mode: Bottle Source: BVery Description: Semi-opaque light brown pour with little head. Malty, woody and oak aroma with a similar taste. Was a little watery and flat, maybe this bottle was a little past its prime. Add some body and pep to this and it would be quite good.

12oz bottle pours a funny hazy pale tan with a modest white head. Aroma is fresh earth with a touch of boozy oak. Flavor is an interesting twist, with nutty depth and rich, hearty malt backbone. Hop presence is beyond subtle, but still not too forward. Moderate body, slightly slick finish.

Malts (a bit roasty, possibly from the aging), grains and nuttiness. The flavor is malty with a bit of fruit, possibly a mix of a dark fruit and raspberry. Pretty good overall.
