Ancient backlog. Aroma of raspberry, other sweet red fruits, nougat, caramel malt, toffee chips, marzipan, some plum-ish fruits, overall malty, fruity, desserty. Flavor predominantly sweet malty with an edge of tartness; tangy sweet with popping fruit and juicy malt. Very drinkable despite all the sweetness, didn’t seem particularly sugary to me. Tasty stuff. unclemattie (4406) - Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2009

Appearance: Hazy, deep amber with a froathy, white head. Left great lacing.
Aroma: Very light nose that on first inspection makes me think this is dry hopped. A little earthy grass note along with light caramel and cracker notes from the malt.
Taste: Caramel, bready, some earthiness, and a mild hop bitterness that is a little floral and grassy. Nothing truly amazing here.
Palate: Medium-low carbonation with a medium mouthfeel. Short finish.
Overall: Okay, but not all that memorable.

Draft at the downtown location. Another pretty tasty but not particularly memorable brew. At least these styles go well with pizza, as compared to something huge that would overwhelm. cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 20, 2009
Draft @ the brewery. Pours a dark amber with an off-white head. Grainy, caramel aroma with moderate citrus hops. More of the same in flavor, bready, slightly nutty, mild sweetness, caramel and a fairly bitter backbone and finish. Med mouthfeel, nice carbonation.
