Amber color. Small head.sweet aroma.Nice hint of vanilla in the flavor with a good malt feel in the mouth.Alcohol hidden very well. Finish a little weak. DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 1, 2003
poured a clear brownish amber with little head...malty aroma with touches of overripe apple, alcohol, and banana liquor...some malty apple flavors with some sweetness riding along..semi-creamy mouthfeel with just a sliver of bitterness at the end..pretty smooth for 7.7%..but nothing stands out as extraordinary Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 16, 2004
Cloudy amber color with big frothy off white head. Malt and dried fruit aroma. First taste was a bit bitter with a bit of malt and figs. The 7.7% is nicely masked. The body is full and rich. The finish is smooth and clean. iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 30, 2004
12 oz bottle: reddish copper with a nice off tan head. Sweet tangerine malt aroma and a flavour to match. Some piney bitterness adds a slight depth to the flavour and texture. The balance in this one is the best thing going for it: not overly flavourful or interesting. But drinkable and tasty in its own way. Sammy (12197) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2005
Spicy yeast lager. Carbonated head. Ringwood yeast, bit of fruit and almond and somewhat bitterness. Like an xmas

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2005 After sampling 4 beers before this one, this one seemed to be a blend of the lighter beers at the brewery. Fairly sweet and bitter, and the alcohol was noticeable. Not really that special.
UPDATE: pouring like a jackass gave this a large head. Poured a thin brown color like Newcastle. Aroma was fruity, alcoholic, and bitter. Finishes nutty and alcoholic. It’s fairly complex, but really the flavor lacks to keep it really interesting. It’s still a good solid brew.(3.3 --> 3.4) McGarnigle (651) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Bottle. Clear copper with an off-white head. Slight diacetyl aroma. Body is medium, sparkly carbonation. I don’t really detect the fruitiness others do. It’s malty without hop bitterness, but it is also somewhat dry. It’s somewhat biscuity to me. A bit of the alcohol comes through. I think this is a very interesting beer, and I’d drink it again.

April 2006 - Poured a coppery color, small head and little lacing (I liked the color, though). Mouthfeel of a dry white whine...made my lips pucker a bit. Odd. Caramel-like flavor, with some mild spicey fruit, a touch of alcohol and a decent hop bite finish. Not bad. elihapa (1553) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAY 14, 2008
3/12/08 notes: bottle. Pours a light amber-orange with a small head. Has a Medium mouthfeel with soft carbonation that is fairly sticky. Mellow flavors include roasted malts, caramel, cascade and fuggle hops with some fruitiess. All flavors were blended together gently in a charmingly mellow sort of way. 7% Alcohol is hidden nicely, and I think this may be tops from the Cooperstown brewery. blipp (9268) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 23, 2008
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a dissapearing off white head. Caramel aroma with candy sugar, cherry and hops. Medium body. Flavor has a general fruit sweetness, as well as caramel and hop notes. Not that bad.
