Draft at Ten Tables in JP. Pours a rustic orange color with a small foamy off white head. Nose is lightly nutty with a light coriander spice and a hint of sweet caramel malt. Palate is full and smooth. Flavors of light spicy autumnal notes with a nice sweet malt in the finish and hints of caramel and toffee. williamherbert (1544) - Syracuse, New York, USA - NOV 8, 2009
A cloudy toffee-brown pub ale. Large rocky head. Thick lace sticks to the glass. Color turns light yellow at the edges.
The smell is the sweet biscuity aroma of a pub ale. A mild, flowery hop as well. The malt is dry and bready. Very very nice.
The malt flavor dominates the taste, like a slightly sweet amber. The roasted qualities of the malt make the sweetness work. Hops are mild and estery. Somewhere between an amber and a brown, although slightly more of an amber flavor.
The feel is medium bodied; a nice milky, creamy thickness on the way down. It’s a really easy drinking beer with goo dbody and balanced roasted/sweet flavors. Top notch. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 8, 2009

In Northfield, MA. Dark brownish head with healthy fizzy head. Fruity, citrus nose. Some fruits in the taste. Gets dry and malty in the finish. Quite peculiar, really. A bit fizzy in the mouthfeel, with a sweet and malty finish. Not sure about this one. Don’t want to seem weird, but subsequent sips remind me very much of sushi...

Muddy light brown color with a slightly off-white head. Weak aroma of malts... barely noticeable at least for me. Slightly fruity taste. Kind of dry feeling overall. Very minimal hops. Moderate taste of malts through and through. puboflyons (3531) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 14, 2009
Poured from the 1 pt. 6 fl. oz bottle most likely brewed just a few weeks prior to my tasting in Feb. ’09. The pour was a reddish-amber tone with an adequate supply of foamy beige head that sticks around and provides a little lacing action. The aroma is floral with a note of hops. Medum mouthfeel. The hops are more evident in the taste than they are in the aroma and there is a sweet and bitter end to the flavor. A fine brew for those chilly winter evenings. beerbill (3619) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 20, 2008
22 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazed dark amber with a moderate off-white head that lasted through two-thirds of the glass and left lots of spotted lace. Pleasant aroma of caramel, malt, and just a hint of fruit. The flavor is equally enjoyable with caramel and malt with some very mild hops at the finish. Smooth mouthfeel that borders on being silky. Good stuff and underrated. jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2008
at Honest Town BrewPub–on tap-pours an off white head that laces and amber color. Aroma is slightly sweet medium malt. Taste is sweet medium malt-caramel, secondary floral hops. Doesn’t quite mesh. dogfish120love (1364) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 3, 2008
Pours an orange foliage esc in coloration, little head. smells very malty with caramel and spices in the nose. Taste well rather unpleasant, but not undrinkable caramel hop and malt a little too over-spiced and watery at the same time.
