Webshop. Pours clear amber with a medium, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has sweet malts, crystal malts, light caramel, earthy and grassy hops. Medium to low carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of fat, sweet malts, caramel, light toasted, grass. Firm bitterness. Elegant.
12oz bottle-pours an off white head and hazy gold color. Aroma is malt-slightly sweet, faint hops. taste is malt-slightly sweet, faint hops. Sammy (12496) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2005
A good transition beer. Not a bold strong Bell’s but a very decent brew, better than a national brand anything. Nice hops like a pale ale. Well malted. Very good after fish. slowrunner77 (12471) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 1, 2014
"wish list cross-off from pfoxyjohn. unfortunately, i was a little underwhelmed by this one. not expecting greatness, but hoping for a favorite or near favorite for the style. pours a murky amber with a nice looking head. flavor is mostly malt, as is the flavor, and just wasn’t complex, bright, or hoppy enough to do much for me. not bad, but i’ve had much better in the style. 1st disappointment from Kalamazoo

Bottle. Sweet malty aroma. Medium amber color with small head. Sweet pineapple-orange flavor with moderate hops. Good nice tasting beer - just nothing too spectacular. hopscotch (11175) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 1, 2003

On tap at the brewery.
Clear, deep golden brew. Small, creamy, white head which retains well. Nice lacing.
The aroma is of white bread, butterscotch, honey-butter and a subtle, unidentified, fuzzy fruit.
Creamy, rich flavor. Caramelly and malty up front. Nicely bittered and balanced on the backside.
Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Bitter, dry, grassy finish! daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 29, 2008
This is a well balanced amber ale that almost tastes like it has some honey added int he brewing process. I really like this one. great in its category. kp (10881) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007
