Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins during Anheuser-Bush night. Pours a clear, rust orange appearance with a big, cream colored head. Fairly malty, caramel, light toffee, a touch herbal, fairly earthy aroma. Somewhat richly sweet burnt caramel malty, fairly sweet, earthy Fuggles hoppy flavor. Light fruitiness.

Bottle. Kind of a rich orange pour with a small foamy white head - not bad looking. Lots of caramel with some cardboard in the aroma - ugg. Nose is hoppier than the taste. Note a great brew here. alexsdad06 (10268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle shared by Dave. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small white head. The aroma has sweet malt, caramel, some fruit character,and a hint of hops. The flavor is more malt forward, caramel, mild fruits, toasted, grassy and a touch of earth. This was just ok. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2013

Bottle to snifter. Looks solid; a transparent brownish-orange with thin off-white lacing. Smells sweet and hoppy. Tastes like it smells, but blander, with an average (at best) mouthfeel. Meh.
