On tap at Tyler’s, Durham. Still looking amber pour, but almost merits a 4 for simply being so bright. The nose is sweet fruit and juniper to begin with, some soft malt emerging just a tad. Body is a bit thin, and the beer is certainly flavorful enough. But the Fuggles get a bit lost in a beer that doesn’t seem quite to know what direction it’s headed. ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 14, 2010
On tap at Tylers-Durham, NC. Bright amber pour with a fizzy off white head. Aroma is lemony with a touch of biscuity cereal grains. Body is thin. Flavor is malt driven with just a touch of fuggles Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Draft at Cap Ale House with Butters and maniac for maniac’s b-day. Pale amber, decent head fades quickly. Lightly malty aroma of caramel accented malts. Flavor was lightly caramel malt and a touch of earthy hops faint on the finish. Just not much going on here - I was really wanting the Maris Otter to smack me in the face. Instead it just sort of waved at me from across the street. Too bad. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2010
[2646-20091205] Tap. Boozy grainy fruit malt aroma has a hint of banana. Slightly hazy, light brown orange body with a quick foamy white head. Fruity weird banana malt flavour. Medium-full body. Nice to try but odd banana fruit characteristics.

This bottled brew from a beer festival poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light orange brown colored body. The mild aroma was rye and malty. The vinous mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The flavor contained notes of vinous rye and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Reviewed from notes.
Pours amber with a bit of brightness. White head and a bit of lacing. Nose is sweet malt with a bit of fruit, toffee, and caramel. Taste is lightly sweet wihout much else. Medium body wig a bit of alcohol. Great concept, but fairly plain overall.

Tap @ Goodbar. Really pretty dark copper body, thin white head. Noose is some nice toffee & honey malt, lightly spicy English hops. Flavor is caramel, floral hops, brown sugar, alcohol. More burnt sugar comes forward in the finish. jb (3252) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 5, 2009
On tap at McGregors Henrietta. Very interesting, English style ale. Dark, with orange highlights. Clear. Nose is very sweet, with toffee. Quite malty, a bit of English hops to balance it out. I liked it, but it is nothing terribly special. hopscotch (11086) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2009
Draft... Clear, beautiful copper ale with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma provides toffee, caramel and light chocolate; beefy, musky hops and medium-roast malt. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Sweet, toasted malt and candied fruits are highlights. Lingering, sweet finish. Slipstream (2625) - USA - JAN 25, 2010
This was a good day for unusual beers. I like the story behinds this one. A lightly fruity and sweet ale. Low on hops, and with a bit of citrus. It is definitely unusual and hard to categorize. The empasis seems to be on the fruity tones (altho there is no fruit added), and there is a touch of skank. On tap at RnH.
