Poured a hazy amber color with a thin off-white head. Dull malt with a mild citrus hop note make up the aroma and flavor. Light bodied.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2009
Pours amber as expected. Sweet smell on this brew which ends up having a peat, chocolate, malt flavor to it. Goes down smooth.

beerbill (3324) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 4, 2009
Bottle shared by goldtwins. Pours a mostly clear golden brown. Pleasant aroma of molasses and malt. The flavor is very weak malt and frankly not much else. Mild bitterness at the finish. Nothing exciting, but no problems either.

Sparky (2133) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2009
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a 2 finger beige head that leaves great lacing. The nose is caramel malt and earthy hops. The taste is similar with some biscuits mixed in. Medium bodied. Boring, but drinkable.

BelgianBeerGal (3102) - Panama City, Florida, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Draught in Brian Head. Medium orange-brown colour with a small off-white head. Aroma was mostly malt but just a little hop in the end. Pretty much the same flavour, very malty and maybe a little hop bitterness in the finish. Average.

Brewed in the USA....... Courtesy of AFI96 thanks waylo !!! Pours a hazy orange color with a small white head. Aroma of caramel and malts. Taste is much of the same !! However there are some spicy notes at the finish. Overall, average ale but kind of boring.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 14, 2008
Holy lord. Disgusting. Near undrinkable, in fact. Pure butter and rancid hops and cabbage. Unbelievably buttery finish. Absolutely disgusting.

marcus (6307) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 20, 2008
This copper ale poured with a nice fluffy beige head and a caramel malt aroma. The flavor is lighter than this beer’s appearance would indicate, but it’s hearty enough to afford a flavor relatively balanced between malt and hops.

travita (3838) - Frisco, Texas, USA - SEP 7, 2008
Copper colored and clear in the look with a light white head. Smell is biscuits, carmel, and mostly just malty aromas. Taste is a light sweetness, malts, and caramel. Light and weaker overal. Off taste in the back of the throat.
