nothing left but the sweet caramel malt flavor,
Aroma: 6/10; Appearance: 6/10; Flavor: 6/10; Palate: 6/10; Overall: 12/20
After I got over the ridiculous amount of foam - a Dogwood trade I guess - this proved to be a sweet tasting pale ale with just enough hoppiness to keep it honest. The appearance is nice and cloudy and no bitter aftertaste. Detect a slight citrus aroma. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 5, 2007
Thanks to SpringsLicker for the retired bottle! Poured hazy, deeper peach with a short, but well-retained cap of off-white head.. left some sticky lacing as it descended. The aroma picked up drier toffee and floral sweetness, definitely losing most of its hoppage over the years.. still enjoyable, having aged somewhat like Fuller Vintage Ales (malt-forward). The flavor had sweet, aged caramel and toffee, still with a bit of leafy and pine bitterness.. sweet malty finish. Roughly medium-bodied and a bit tacky at the back-end.. held up decently.

Pours a lightly hazy golden with plenty of carbonation and a big puffy white head. Fresh hoppy and fruity aroma. Mildly sweet and hoppy, but nothing spectacular. Dry grainy notes as well. Smooth and drinkable, but dull. BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 27, 2003
Thanks Mabdoney. Slightly hazy golden hue with fizzy white head and some lace. Very floral aroma of aromatic and dry hops, toasted malt, biscuit, light citrus and yeast. Lively and clean mouthfeel leds to a nice bitter and malty balance, not overdone. Undertone of lemon and orange with a dash of yeast twang. A refreshing session ale, nothing great but easy to drink.
