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.

Bottle. Poured into a DFH tulip glass a copper clear color with a 1.5 finger head of light tan that quickly settles, leaving some lace as it goes down. The aroma is that of sweet, lighlty toasted bread or biscuit. I don’t pick up really any of the oak notes but it does have a ever so slight fruity aroma to it they may be caused by the oak. Medium/light mouthfeel. Sweet caramel like start with a light drawn out flavor that just sort of melts away. Nothing overpowering here in this one. Would like to see maybe a dash more hop character to this along with possibly more of the oak. Overall, not bad. The plusses are the looks and the light ABV which makes it a solid choice for a light beer.

I like this beer. Cream soda colored body with a thin white head. Inviting aroma of caramel, bread, and a touch of sweet citrus. Medium, smooth mouthfeel. A sweet, caramel entry fades to a complex oaky finish. Not much aftertaste. This is a very drinkable beer. Quite enjoyable.

"An incredibly drinkable ale, light in body but full of flavor." I wouldn’t say it’s incredibly drinkable but, drinkable none the less. "Oaky notes blend with the complex balance of malt and hops." Oaky notes - more like very oaky finish. Even my wife said it tasted like wood. "This is a beer you can enjoy for the long haul." I’m not sure I would enjoy it always but, it was an OK beer - something more for the summer but, around here you can’t be picky.

JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2011
Deep amber pour with a thin sticky white head. The nose is slightly earthy and oaky. There is the faintest kiss of tartness in there that doesn’t really get me going. A little bit of caramel and toffee with a bit of light chewy tartness. On the end of the palate, it still has its body intact. A touch of cherry and even a bit of lemony citrus. Unusual with a nice soft sweetness. I really want to like this, but I don’t. The odd lacto character clashes with the soft malty sweetness.

On tap. Poured a hazy chestnut with a ruby hue and a tan head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was malty with grain and hay being the main notes. There was underlying light fruits and caramel. Flavor was malty as well with slightly sweet grain and hints of light fruit and citrus.

thirdeye11 (5635) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 30, 2010
(12oz bottle thanks to blutt59) clear copper, lasting tan head. Nose of caramel, wood, pencil shavings, and raisins. Taste of raisin bread, rye, caramel, and lightly bitter. Soft carbonation.

Draft. Pours a bruin amber body with an off white head. Crisp and clean with a light caramel body and some light earth tones. Mild toasted malt bill hints of almond and a thinner body. Decent ale.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2010
(12oz bottle, courtesy of blutt59) Pours a clear copper body with a small off-white head. Aroma of dough, grass, cereal, and caramel. Flavor of grass, grain, light herbs, some apple, and caramel with a dry finish.

EithCubes (5089) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Bottle best by 1/20/11. Dank, musty nose with a little wood and a little vegetation. Pours a dark, pale-ish chestnut and supports a jiggly beige head. Taste is very dry and very woody, but in the sense of gritty wood, not the vanilla that oak often imparts. Very thin body, yet not watery, pleasant and smooth hop bite, definitely very English, with some biscuit in the aftertaste. Faint herbs and lemony citrus. Tightly defined and very successful in achieving its goal. Good complexity and full of flavor!

cheap (4210) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2010
Slightly bitter and pleasantly tart. Somewhat wild in its attitude and I like that. Odd nice sizzle yet comes across lacking in CO2, the palate is quite friendly. Fruity at times. An over all really nice beer drinken experience. Brownish yellow in appearance with some gunk on the bottom of the bottle. Would certainly buy this stuff again and its not real expensive either.
