On tap at the Eccentric Cafe. Aroma comes clean with a fresh malt biscuit and watered grain aroma, behind a bit of mineral salt, toast and ester notes. Pours in a pale amber gold, clothed in a soapy bath of off-white. Flavor comes in with nips of honeyed sweetness, rich wheat sugars, calming British yeast esters and a cue of full flavored hop balance. Nicely refreshing and dry, with an easy drinking finish. Smacks a touch in calm spice. Delicious all around and with a tooth of delectable alcohol. MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - AUG 14, 2007
12oz on tap at the Eccentric Cafe - Aroma is subtle toasted caramel malts followed by crisp citrus hops. Pours dark copper with a medium head and good lacing. Flavor is pine and grapefruit hops first followed by the caramel malt for a smooth finish. Palate is crisp and creamy. Pretty tasty stuff. badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2007
very well done...on tap at bells....reddish copper body with medium off-white head..aroma is of toasted malts, light caramel, and grassy hops..flavor is as expected, a largely earthy backbone that gives rise to the moderately bready qualities..finishes somewhat dry and a touch bitter...very grassy and piney, and very quaffable GTown (127) - New York, USA - JUN 29, 2007
Draughts at the Cafe. Pours copper with an off white head. Toasty aroma with caramel undertones. Medium body and bitterness. Not bad, but not at the top of American-brewed bitters. sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2007
On tap @ the brewpub: Pours a clear ruddy copper with an off white head. Aroma, earthy notes, caramel, and nutty. Flavor, nutty caramel malts up front, some brown sugar, with a roasty dry bitterness on the finish.

On tap. Pours a clear light copper color with a small off white head. Aroma is toasted malts, floral hops, and grain. Flavor is malt, pine, grapefruit, and grains. Palate is medium bodied, medium carbonation, finishes bitter. Decent stuff. Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - MAY 23, 2007
On tap at the Eccentric Cafe. Clear copper body, thin off-white head. Toasty aroma with potent herbal hops. Cerealy, biscuity body with Cheerios notes, pierced by sharp, herbal, piney hops. More assertive than most bitters, fresh-tasting with good complexity. Nice.
