Bottle. Beer pours golden brown with a nice head retention, mild malty overtones with a slight aroma of molassas or brown sugar. Attack is crisp and beer is surprisingly well-balanced with a nice clean finish. I expected a sweet, malty, tacky sort of brew, but this one is really well done.

From tap at the brewpub. Pours cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is mild fruity and slight hoppy. Light citrusy too. Sweet and fruity into a dry hoppy finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Why the 5 for appearance, you ask? This beer looks like a science experiment with all the floaties in it. Hazy orange, nice white head, and a TON of floaties. The aroma is caramel and toffee mixed with a banana and bubblegum, plus some resiny pine notes. Flavor is a touch of malty caramel sweetness, plus a good deal of yeasty flavors. Big sticky pine finish, more than the aroma would indicate. I liked it...

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle - Appearance is cloudy amber with a thin white head. A bit of lacing left on the glass. Aroma - Iím getting caramel, hay, alcohol, and a little resin. Taste is a little sweet and dry. finish lingers, but is watery. Texture is a little sticky, with a thin feel, light body, a little boring, very one note.

Pours from bottle caramel brown with little head and no lacing. Slight hint if malt on the nose. The taste had some sweetness to it but is pretty forgettable otherwise. Finishes watery.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: Draft at The City Tavern, 4/7/11
Aroma: This one had some spice, some orange/citrus notes, honey, and caramel
Appearance: This is an amber looking beer with a fairly small head atop it
Flavor: The taste is fairly malty, medium sweet, some spice presence
Palate: The body is medium with a decent mouthfeel and a light boozy feel to it
I thought this beer was decent, but Iím a little surprised by how good these scores are. Honestly, I wasnít that impressed by this one. Jefferson should have stuck to public policy. I know it wasnít good, but I couldnít resist that joke.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bonus from a trade. Bottle. Pour is a hazy, almost muddy, copper with a medium sized off-white head. Sweet caramel aroma with hints of spice. Taste is pretty dull with a hint of caramel in the background and an overly bitter finish. Medium bodied, and loads of lacing left on the glass. Pretty forgettable beer, but maybe I had a bad bottle.

Strong malt with plenty of spice in the flavor. A bit of sour yeastiness. Rather interesting.

2.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
Pours a nice moderate amber color with a thin white head. The nose brings a good deal of sweetness with caramel, candied fruits, light citrus, and some brown sugar. The taste is definitely sweet with a bit of booze. Light fruits, bread, and cake. Feel is medium with lowish carbonation. Drinks well overall.

From the bottle, pours a hazy orange with a thin head. Aroma is of caramel and and malts, light orange citrus notes, some sweet bread. Taste is similar, full flavored with caramel, sweet bread, very lightly bitter. Very good beer.
