Bottle courtesy poonpillager. Pours a clear copper with a small off white head. Aroma of sweet malt, bready malt, floral hops, and a hint of caramel. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a mild to moderate amount of bitterness. Good. estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2008

Clear amber red with a thin whitish head and super tiny lacing. Smell is light and a little hoppy and not horrible - I would just like it a bit more vibrant or loud. Flavor is okay - has a presence of hops but it is though they are standing over in the corner alone and almost like they aren’t there. Palate is really really carbonated.

Mostly clear reddish amber pour with a short lived light beige head. Smell is somewhat chocolately and lightly hoppy. Interesting. Taste is kind of like cocoa-y fruity hops and balanced with a toffee, caramel and cocoa and lightly hoppy finish. Not what I expected at all. Not my favorite, but drinkable, and not bad though, either.
Dark amber color, not a very pale ale. Generous off-white head fades to a small but dense covering that leaves some lace behind.
Sweet, rich grainy malty smells, caramalts, toffee scents dominate, some light grassy and citrusy (orange) hops.
Tastes much as the smell led me to imagine. Sweet caramalts dominating the impression, but it is "dry" somewhat on the finish as the grassy and citrus hops pop in.
Pretty smooth, moderately carbonated medium bodied. Fairly drinkable, nothing special.

12oz bottle-A light orangish amber body with a huge white head and an aroma of hops and citrus. Taste of the same with a dry finish. Not bad but not good. Another Columbus overly carbonated beer. BabyJoe692 (109) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Draft. Strong citrusy hop aroma. Light orangish/gold in color. Strong bitterness with a fruity finish. BeerBaronLS (85) - Grove City, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2007
Very drinkable. Nice balanced yet intense cascade hops. Not anything to get excited about, but a good example of the style. I continue to come back to it
