HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - OCT 16, 2008
Pours wiht an amber and reddishy color. Very malty flavors profile, a bit of caramel and some earthy notes. Not much hops, but a good food beer. Nice mouthfeel and palate.

19Ei8hty (1134) - Washington, USA - OCT 16, 2008
Clear red body. Rich, syrupy malt backbone - very sweet with a hefty helping of aromatic hops. Kind of a stale chalkiness that kind of ruins what could be a very decent drink.

Nice amber body with an off white head Sweet corn notes really hurt his beer, both in aroma and flavor. Finish seemed to have some caramel notes, hops were alright.

BoTMC Selection September 2008: Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. Pour produced an amber body with some red highlights, topped by a small head of foam. Aroma is slightly malty though not much there. A fair sweetness to it , sliding on to a slight bitter finish. Crisp carbonation, with a medium body and good mouthfeel.

Pretty good ale. Nice looking dark amber with a small head. Flavor starts out malty sweet and ends with a nice hop bitterness. Nice and clean finish.

Sexy looking beer. Nose confused me. Stings the nostrils almost as a white wine would. Light bodied to be sure. Pretty hoppy, but it gets sour in the finish.

MJGG (945) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 4, 2008
Bouteille de 12 oz. Arômes sucrés de malt caramel. Robe orangée et claire, peu de mousse. Moyennement ronde en bouche, un beau malt caramel est rejoint par une légère touche de houblon citronné qui mène à une finale moyennement amère. Simple mais efficace.

asheft (2476) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2008
[bottle from brewpub] Nutty aroma with plenty of strawberry mixed in with grapefruit hops. Clear chestnut with wispy white swirls and ring. Nutty and lemony flavour with a touch of biscuity toast and notes of pear. The bitterness and nuttiness work together well also. Light to medium body, medium carbonation, nutty bitter finish. Excellent.
