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.
Scents of bisquets malt and a little yeast. Pours red brown with slightly off-white head. Substantial persistent head with light lacing. Tastes sharp and dry with a alkaline mouthfeel. Balanced and nice. BillKismet (4057) - 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 (1366) - 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 it’s 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.

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. DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2016
Bottle from Wegmans. Pours hazy dark straw with off-white head. Nose was caramel malt, hops. Tasted caramel malty, with some mild tannins, assertive hops in the finish, and some late citrus.

PhillyCraft (7225) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2015
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
Solid enough beer. It has some flavor and a decent amount body, but overall, it just doesn’t 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.
