Draft taproom. Pours deeper gold with an offwhite head. Aroma is browning leaves, green and brown grass. Flavor is brown leaves, green grass, light vegetation, a little copper. Travlr (25876) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Draft. Clear deep amber color, medium off white head. Aroma of toasted caramel. Taste is lightly peppery toasted biscuit. Not bad. jackl (8301) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Keg @ WF C’ville. The pour’s deep amber with a tight off-white head. Attractive beer. The nose is fairly minimal. Biscuit, a bit of caramel and red apple. The taste isn’t as tight and clean as I’d hoped. A bit of newspaper, dish water. Otherwise, pleasant notes of apple and biscuit. Malty sweetness. Light body, active carbonation. Overall, not bad, but probably not on perfect form. Iphonephan (7206) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - SEP 28, 2013
On draft at Mad Fox Oktoberfest. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Biscuit nose. Lemon and caramel flavors. Mildly bitter finish.

Half stein pour. Copper, white head. Roasty, sweet malt aroma. Nutty, sweet, roasted taste. Nice hop bite. Crisp apple finish. Braudog (6805) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Draft t the brewpub. Same exact color as the ESB. Dark bronze. No lasting head. Sweet and tangy, this is a good fall beer. Nice appley finish. (#4273, 10/3/2011) Foxbush (2088) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Purchased by a friend for me to take to the USC v Navy game in Columbia. The beer poured with a smallish head from the growler. The color was an inviting amber. The beer had a slight yeasty taste. The amber beer lacked hops to add to the taste. We will be taking this to the game. Finish was smooth with sweetness. strap (955) - Sindelfingen, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2011
draft at the brewery. very refreshing. a well balanced brew, typical of the style. great to sip outside on a late summer/early fall day. Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Serving: Draft at the 2010 Fall Brewfest.
Aroma: The nose is straightforward with toasted and bready notes, but not much from the hop side.
Appearance: It pours a nice amber orange color with a slight, foamy, off-white head.
Taste: The flavor has a fruity bitterness and a lingering off flavor. A bit vegetal. Something just doesn’t seem quite right here as I’ve lost the toasted notes from the nose.
Palate: Light to medium body with average carbonation and a lingering, bitter finish. It lacks crispness and cleanness.
Overall: This one didn’t impress me as much as I hoped it would. I would like to give this one another shot on tap at the brewery though.
