hardly any head, but a great malty sweet yet hoppy aroma and nice copper color. Good mouth feel. I picked up a couple of off flavors but I suspect it was due to some food Id just eaten. Got this bottle from my friend Paul who brings stuff for me from his travels.

Lightly hoppy and grainy malt aroma. Clear amber coloured body is topped by a decent white head that steadily recedes, slowly but completely. Flat malt flavour has some toasty character and fairly assertive bitterness. Medium-light body with low carbonation felt somewhat lifeless in the mouth. Sampled at the Willimantic brewpub with MartinT, muzzlehatch and Rastacouere.

On tap at Willimantic. Amber color, off-white film. Quite grainy aroma, feeling a bit raw, earthy and fruity graham-like maltiness. Mellow evolving hops gently complement toasty and slightly biscuity malts. This is a quaffable beer with a light-medium body, but seriously indistinctive I found. I certainly expected more hops in there, we are dealing with a minimal citric character. It just felt all the way despite warming like a beer served way too cold with just too shy flavours.

On tap at Willimantic : Grainy caramel in a slick mouthfeel...Sweet malty fruitiness with a nice roasty back bitterness...Well-done, but still an amber ale after all...

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 15, 2004
Amber with a light filmy head and spotty lacing. Aromas are malt dominant with caramel roast and crystal. Hops are sweet and fruity as well as slightly earthy. Some alcohol along with citrus. Flavors are nutty with loads of sweet caramel. Bittering hops come out with a slight fruitiness. Creamy mouthfeel with a tangy bite. Thanks DYC!

Ruby Yorkshire terrier color, nice sized head with good retentiveness. A rich malty perfume dances with wild fruity notes & a whisper of grainy tendencies. The tastes present a balanced show of crystal malt sweetness & hop bitterness. Not a very exciting show. Tail is a bit too bitter. No or little umami on this one. Thanks DYC!

Sweet malty aroma with some metallic hop notes in there. I do get a little fruitiness in there as well. Mildly hazy dark copper/amber color with a small quickly dissipating light tan head. Lots of roasted and pale malts in this beer to start. Finishes with a nice bitter hoppiness. Nice body and very adequate.

Small offwhite head, fair retention, spotty lacing. Clear amber color, Vinous nose, grapes, lightly grainy. Medium body. Medium sweet maltyness, grainy, wort like flavors. Finish is fairly dry, light astringency. Thanks go to dycsoccer17 for this bottle of brew. He added it to a crossed up shipment. True ratebeer spirit!

Another Yankee done fooled me! I mean, what should one expect from a bottle merely marked "Old Yankee Ale", anyway? Appearance: dark, rich amber/ brown color, beneath a tawny tan head. Aroma: sweet and malty, toffeeish, and distinctly nutty. Light hoppiness, medium body, excellent texture, delightful play on the tongue. Fruitiness comes forward in the middle, and rides out to the end. Very smooth and easy, quite nice overall. Felt like a fuller bodied brown ale, than a "pale ale."

08.11.04 12oz bottle. It took a while to get this all into the glass, what with the head that wouldnt quit. Hazy amber color with aforementioned MASSIVE tan head and thick, sticky lace. Aromas smack of grapefruit, some pine, some sweetness. The body is medium and clean. The beer has a hint of metallic flavor; coupled with the giant head, Im tempted to think its not in the best shape it could be. I press on, regardless. A resinous, piney bite cuts into what had been a cleanly malty front balancing with a nicely floral hop character. More resiny bitterness persists as a chaser, not unpleasantly, inviting another sip. Im having trouble getting past the metallic tinge; otherwise, its a good find.
