Amber with off-white head, and mild head retention and lacing. Caramel, toffee, floral, alcohol and mild early notes. Full bodied, high malt, significant alcohol notes, astringent, phenol, and cereal flavor notes. Unbalanced, lacks true English strong Ale balance qualities, way too titled on alcohol notes...lacks sessionable qualities.

Keg @ Bull Falls. Amber pour with a small head. Aroma is fairly neutral. Sort of doughy with a bit of plum and spring fruits. Flavor’s similar. Doughy. Caramel and cantaloupe. Bread. Medium body, soft carb. deyholla (11491) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 28, 2017
Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with a near white head that dissipates to the edges slowly and laces. Aroma has notes of bread and hay with a touch of sweet grains supporting. Flavor has notes of stale straw with hay and grain supporting. muzzlehatch (4950) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 27, 2016
Draught pint at City Grill in Wausau, WI. Pours medium to dark amber with just a bit of foam...fairly uninteresting malty-biscuit aroma, bit of caramel, not a lot going on...is this an amber ale? I wasn’t looking it up here while I was drinking it, and there was no description on the menu, seems amber-ale to me, little hop presence, biscuit malts, unfortunately a bit of cardboard character towards the finish...ehh, I really can’t come up with much here. Drinkable, not that much wrong besides that cardboard (which mostly disappeared as it warmed) , but nothing much to take home either. madvike (3250) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 1, 2016
Can - Amber pour with foamy light tan head. Nose is grassy, herbal hopping with sweet caramel malt. Bready as hell. Tastes similar, with some orange marmalade notes, a little spiciness, and a burnt bitterness on the finish. Super malty, but sharp where I’d like it to be smooth and way too sweet. Smooth body, but so not my thing.

Orange. Strong caramel and toffee with mild citrus hops. Flavor is caramel candy, toffee, and more light citrus bitterness. crossovert (12642) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2015
473ml can. clear deep gold, nice fluffy white head. Tartish herb aroma. Flavor is lightly tart, malty, some citrus, ok. Lemke10 (980) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2015
This pours a clear, dark amber color with a slight beige head. The aroma is malty with a touch of citrus. The taste is smooth and easy drinking. It has a well-balanced flavor and taste. I thought it was a lot better than the rating would suggest. JPDIPSO (6216) - Wauwatosa, USA - JUN 29, 2015
Amber to orange in color. Fluffy beige head. Pale malt, biscuit, and herbal hops aromas. Hints of butter. Flavors are all over the place. Caramel, butter, tin, earth, buckwheat honey, herbal bitterness. Long bitter linger. Interesting at time, unpleasant at others. arminjewell (9584) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2015
Pour out of 16 oz can, hazy dark orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big caramel, butter, bread into some veggie, hints of grain, slight earthy notes. Taste was sweet vanilla, earth, caramel, butter, veggie, hints of grain, finishing fairly dry, slightly sweet. Bleh.
