Can. A more or less clear one, dark amber in color and with a small, beige head. The aroma is rather sourish caramel malty, with dried fruits and some rye bready hints. Quite malty, almost wort like flavor too, with raisins, some plums, bread and caramel. It’s smooth on the palate, medium bodied and semi-sweet. Lasting finish. Not my favorite in any way. Not that it’s really bad in any way, I just don’t like the way it’s brewed. Sort of like a session-quad, which doesn’t work out very nice. 150625 argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Draft. Clear dark amber body, medium beige head. Aroma is moderately sweet, orange, light bread. Taste is medium sweet, orange/earthy, bread, some caramel. Light-medium body. Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2011
Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear reddish-copper with a medium sized creamy off-white head. Good head retention and a bit of lacing. Aroma of caramel, toffee and some toastiness. The taste is bitter hops, toasted malts, nutty notes and a faint bit of fruitiness. Medium bodied. A bit over-hopped, but still decent.

Pours slightly hazy brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, bread, wort and grains. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long caramel, bread and grainy finish. Body is light to medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.
Can... Pours clear and burnt-orange with a small, wispy, cream-colored head. The aroma is toasty, malty and fruity – caramel and black cherries with a splash of sweet, fruity, crusted port. Full-bodied with tickling carbonation. Tastes a lot like a Scotch ale – lightly roasty and vinous with nuances of caramel and English biscuit. Extraordinarily well-balanced. Finishes nourishing and lightly bitter some minerals. I’ll go against the grain here. Love this crushable brew. Can courtesy of ygtbsm94! blipp (9691) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Pale and light bready malts, light flowery hops, and some lingering hoppy bitterness. Well balanced and drinkable. DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 31, 2014
12oz can, I’m pretty sure I got this from Perfect Pour. Sticker on the bottom reads 03/2014. Amber-red color. Thin ring of off-white head. Some dots of lace. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick. Medium body. Caramel malt, some toasty malt. Some orange citrus. Lightly spicy. Moderate bitter taste. Light spicy sweet. OK ESB. A little metallic, bitter, and abrupt, but not bad. Probably better fresh. A lot of bitter orange peel in the flavor, right now. solidfunk (9407) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 18, 2014
Pretty good showing for style. Pours orangish brown with good head and lacing. Good balance, nice crisp malt. Good mix overall of elements. Tap at RFD in Chinatown. drowland (9057) - Georgia, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Sampled during CBC 2013. Amber pour with a small khaki head. The aroma shows bread, biscuits, caramel, and a bit of dusty black tea. Bready, malty flavor, caramel and biscuits, a touch of metal. Not bad.
