philipmeese (84) - Rowayton, Connecticut, USA - MAY 11, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours dark cloudy amber with nice white head that disappears quickly. Initially a big bright hoppy aroma. Flavor flat. Nice medium body and foamy effervescence. Clean aftertaste. Overall, unremarkable.

BillKismet (3991) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 29, 2016
Brassy body, super poofy nose. Astringent, bitter hop nose and flavor. Out of balance--could use more of a malt backing.

halfonit (1346) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Picked this up at the brewery. Pours a clear amber color with a thick, slightly off white head. A minute later its gone leaving minimal lacing. Aroma is of roasted malts, chocolate, harvest, and cocoa. Medium bodied. Flavor is of malts, chocolate, caramel, dry hops, and some earthiness. Leaves a roasted, burnt, malt chocolate finish. Meh.

tfontana (917) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 5, 2016
Taster pour at Craft Beer Race New Haven. Appearance is hazy light brown (like a cider) with ring of head, mild lacing and sparkle. Aroma is bready malt. Taste is malt dominant biscuit/cracker with some caramel. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with average texture, soft carbonation and finish like taste. Overall, not bad by any means but pretty pedestrian.

ben4321 (6147) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 12, 2015
Location: 12 oz bottle from Nikkis Liquors, 6/12/15

Aroma: The aroma is fairly malty, some earthy and bready notes, and a little citrus as well
Appearance: It pours a cloudy copper color with a frothy beige head and some average lace
Flavor: It tastes similar, fairly balanced overall, not too sweet, not too bitter, just balanced
Palate: It is medium bodied, with a decent mouthfeel, average carbonation, and a light dryness
Overall Impression: Solid enough beer. It has some flavor and a decent amount body, but overall, it just doesnt quite get there for me. Decent enough, but not my favorite.

Bottle shared by Tom, pours copper golden with small to medium white head. Notes of English malt, crisp hops, and bread. Balanced and Sessionable as far as malt-forward brews go.

As good as it is to be with family on a sunday afternoon I cant claim it improves the taste of this beer. Its a fine tasting beer. One I would not seek out. Crisp, slightly malty, vaguely hoppy, sharp and a little harsh on the tongue.
