Pours a hazy orange color with a white head. Aroma is malty, and fruity. Flavor is malty slightly fruity, with a light bitter finish. Rciesla (5607) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUN 16, 2008
Pours a dark amber body with an off white head. Aroma is sweet malt with a potent hop aroma of citrus. Flavor is dominated by malt and the citrus hoppy sting comes in in the finish. okay. Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 15, 2011
12 ounce bottle courtesy of MaltDawg at the 13th Richmond Gathering. Thanks! Pours a clear amber color with a thin head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus hops, toffee, butterscotch. The taste is toffee, bitter hops, butter, caramel. Medium bodied. Meh. jercraigs (10886) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2004
Amber body with a big fluffy off white head that recedes leaving a still respectable head of foam. Aroma is pleasantly malty with a bit of caramel and butterscotch (perhaps a touch of diacetyl, but I am not sure). Pleasantly sweet with a bit of bitterness to balance it. Something odd but not unpleasant floating about in the finish. Thanks for sharing Ken. sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2007
Bottle. Poured dark clear copper with a frothy off-white head. Fruity aromas of cantaloupe and pear, with a bit of butterscotch, but not the pungent diacetyl I found in some of the other Cooperstowns. Prominent toffee malt and fruity flavors up front seem to mysteriously dissolve, leaving a generally watery and diluted tasting finish, where any hop bitterness is basically washed away. It’s a shame because there are great full flavors here, but they are not being properly supported by the awkwardly thin body. It tastes like an otherwise decent but underdeveloped cask-conditioned beer that’s been put in a bottle.

Looked great when I poured it out, nice dark amber, great smell, almost like apples, but the taste is just pure malt. Nothing very exciting about it. kublai3 (176) - Staten Island, New York, USA - FEB 6, 2002

Brown clear with thick long lasting tan frothy head. The nose is incredibly faint with just a hint of caramel. The taste is again some caramel and malts but the butter is very present but is weak and watter compared to other good beers out there. Lubiere (14151) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2005
Dark gold ale with a light white head. Strong diacetyl whiff in aroma. Sweet butterscotch and fruity taste, with sweet apples and pineapple. Overbearing and difficult to drink. Tap. CNY Brewfest Feb. 5 2005. FROTHINGSLOSH (8142) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2012
My wife brought this one back from a trip to Rochester. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a heavily carbonated orange-caramel color with a large foamy off white head that left no lacing. The aroma was ripe cherries, figs and pears with faint caramel and bread underneath. The flavor was tangy caramel and butterscotch with notes of pear, apple, raisin and fig underneath. The finish was short with a touch of bread and fruit. Light to medium body but overcarbonated. Eh.
