UPDATED: MAY 7, 2011 A reddish amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, faint caramel malt with faint hops. In mouth, a light crisp malt over timid British hops, not bad, but nothing exceptional. On tap at Shirlington location, April 12 2011. brewersspot (97) - , California, USA - OCT 28, 2010
I had this beer a while back and from what I can remember I enjoyed it. I’ve had this at the pub/brewery so it was fresh. BeerandBlues2 (13869) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 10, 2010

Tap at Union Station. This beer looks like mud. Browny amber cloudy mud. Nose was sour, toffee malty. Some orange. Hoppy balance. Standard balance in the mouth, slightly malty. Mouthfeel is thin and not pleasant. Don’t think this was in the best condition. ben4321 (6769) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 7, 2009
