Poured a medium orange with a thin head. The aroma was Colby cheese with some old toffee. There was also a hint of butterscotch. The taste had some funky cardboard and old tobacco. There was also some light orange peel. DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 16, 2005
Clear amber body. Slightly roasty cyrstal malt aroma. Bitter start to the flavor (noble hops) leading to average caramel. Unripe raspberry finish. StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 10, 2005
Gentle hiss as the cap comes off, pouring a semi-hazy and dull glowing copper color. Icy, graying head. Aroma has honeyed hops, sugary pecans, sweet nectar, some spruce, orange sprits, caramel and campfires. Bright and dry flavor. Hops bitter in their intention with scant sweetening for support. It’s as if carbonated orange seltzer water is overriding all other characteristics. Sandpaper palate met by hops and carbonation centered points of origin. Finishes like steel, caramel and subdued hop pellets. Thanks for the bottle, Thaichile. Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - OCT 4, 2005
Had this beer in bottle and on tap at Blackburn’s on Gloucester several times. I feel that this is more of an amber, gold-red color. Delicious, somewhat fruity flavor. Hope to see more beers from Cape Ann Brewing. BennyTicklez (621) - USA - AUG 29, 2005
Pours deep amber with a big off white head that fades fast. Malty, earthy aroma. Sharp somewhat spicy taste, nice maltiness. Some toffee, good mouthfeel. Well made.

Nice amber color with a big malty nose. Nice malty-ness taste with an equally nice mouthfeel. Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Bottle. Dark reddish gold with a thick white head that left some lacing. Nose: light floral hops, caramel malt and a touch of molasses. Medium to thin bodied. Flavor has notes of citrus and pine over a sweet vanilla-toffee background. KariCupcake (214) - Lenox, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Its ok. Big hoppy aroma. Nothing really special or to write home about. . maxfxn (1) - USA - MAY 31, 2005 does not count
rich color. refreshing and great tasting when extremely cold. Very Hoppy, small head, medium to full body. A bit harsh at first, but very drinkable after the 1st few sips. cfranz (261) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 22, 2005
This was beer. It wasn’t great. It wasn’t bad, either. Just an okay beer in all respects: color was okay, head was okay, aftertaste was a little metallic, aroma was okay, hopped some, sweet some.
