Generic and relatively bland. Pours copper with a decent head. Aroma of peach and bread with a flavor that favors the breadiness more than fruits. osu97gp (678) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Pours a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma of sweet malt and light grassy hops. Flavor of sweet malt, herbs and citrus. cbfobes (2883) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2012
On tap at local restaurant, pours a clear amber with spotty lacing, the aroma actually had a decent amount of hops with some caramel and malt, the flavor was pretty disapointing compared to the aroma, some light caramel and malt with a finish of a metal like finish, ugh. wxman (1820) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2012
This is good. On tap at Global Brew. Pours a clear golden with a nice white head. Malt a sweatsock aroma. I know that sounds gross, but in this case it isn’t. Nice biscuity vanilla wafer and sweet malt taste. Some tartness. Really good! rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Had on tap.
Arrived a slightly hazy light copper with little head.
Aroma was somewhat sweet and malty with a little bit of caramel and citrus.
The flavor was quite toasted and I though I detected some rye in there. There was an underlying citrus note but it was hard to tell if it was from the hops or the yeast possibly. A moderate bitterness and a clean finish.
Overall, I thought this was an ok beer but far from great. Not sure I would really seek it out again.

Draft at Old Chicago. Lots of caramel and a little citrus hop bitterness. Decent beer overall, thought I would really like to try the BA version of it. wlajwl (6811) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Aroma is yeast, fruit and malts. The flavor is sweetish malts, strawberries and a smooth finish. dnstone (3418) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Copper color (obviously). Fruity, apricot flavor with a light malt finish. Pretty good for an amber.

Clear copper with a lingering head covering and good spot lacing. The usual caramel malt is right up front, closely followed by medium hops. The bitterness lingers nicely far into the night. Worth a try. Drake (13737) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 28, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Vintage Cellar, Blacksburg. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of grainy and nutty malts, floral notes and caramel. The taste is bitter hops, nutty notes and a toasted finish. Medium bodied.
