Pitcher at a bar/restaurant in Cooperstown. Pours an amber color with a small off white head. A decent balance b/w the malts and hops. A slight carmalized flavor. Medium bodied. Finished easy enough. Good enough for predrinking festivities before entering theHall. yesyouam (1016) - Fairport, New York, USA - JUL 5, 2010
Old Slugger is a hazy, very lively amber ale with a huge, rocky, off white head that has outstanding retention and lacing. There’s not much aroma. I get a slight whiff of leafy hop pellets and caramelly sweetness. It’s light bodied and bubbly. The finish is dry and pretty clean. There’s not much flavor-- a light toastiness and a light spicy bitterness at the finish. It’s very light drinking; not too interesting but quite refreshing. It’s a quaffer... or a slugger.

pale yellowish pour. Nose and taste of very simple hop malt. Not all that good. Rated 4/18/04 MrBeerFanatic (1076) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 6, 2010
High carbonated amber with a more red hue than orange and a stagnant laced head that doesn’t seem to disperse. Aromas of caramel, light apple, zesty hops, grain, slight grass, with a touch of honey. Flavors of light honey, caramel, grain, slight zesty hop backing. Lightly crisp and smooth, slightly bittersweet. More of a grainy/malty pale than I usually drink.

This has a nice, hazy cider orange. Large pillowy head. Darkish orange. Head sticks around for a while. Tiny specks of lace at the top.
Has a nice English Pale smell. Ale-y, slightly fruity (apricot/orange?). Sweet ale malt, few hops to be detected. Fruity and inviting.
Malty ale taste, with a fruity base in the malt. Musty hops act as a bitter parting shot, mild though they are. All flavors increase/improve as it warms up.
Thick ale feel. Slightly creamy and with a wet after-feel. It has a definite English Pale taste. Lovely actually; a fine, sweet ale.

Clear copper pour with a small sudsy white head. Aroma is caramel, bread, mild floral and citrus hops, and toffee. Flavor is a bit grainy and astringent with slight light sugar sweetness and the mildest of citrus. Caramel and toffee come through again. Palate is light to medium with a grainy-dry finish. Fairly nondescript. kramer (6975) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear orangish body with a one finger fizzy white head that fell to a thin film. The nose is minimal leafy hops with a bit of a buttery off-note, some light caramel. The butter flavor overpowers the beer too much to make it enjoyable at all. Lightly bitter floral hops on the finish before the butter takes over. Light to medium bodied with a bit of clinginess on the back end. Moderate fizzy carbonation. Pretty bad, nothing turns me off more than butter in my beer.

Pours a nice copper color with huge head and good lace. Aroma is light but features floral hops. Flavor has a nice biscut malt character and a nice fruitiness with a mild hop bitterness. Palate is sharp. gws57 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Had this one bottled at the brewery in Milford, New York. Nice dark reddish brown color, a piney, hoppy nose, well balanced with a very strong grapefruit and rose flavor, awesome.
