At the Dominion Taproom at Dulles airport 9/12/2012. Deep amber with a slight white head that left rings down the glass. Light, sweetish aroma of caramel, with a hint of hedgerow fruit and leafy hops. Flavour had cereals, more caramel and a moderately bitter finish. Easy drinking. radagast83 (8072) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUL 24, 2006
Bottle. Light copper color. Fruits, caramel, and nice and hoppy. Great pale ale. FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2006 I like to Oak Barrel Stout from this company but this was my first time trying anything else of theirs. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer pours a chestnut color with a small tan head. The aroma is nut, molasses and hops. The flavor is hoppy with your typical red ale sour malt and nut presence. Not bad. Radek Kliber (7363) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - FEB 10, 2003
Very impressive looking copper with white head beer. I also was shocked with incredible fresh, complex aroma. Other brew masters watch and learn! What else do you want? This very aromatic brew also got nice mouthfeel. With time also gives you soft warm feel. Great Brew! larsniclas (7075) - Billdal, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2004 Bottled. Sampled at Stockholm Beer Festival 2003.
Dark amber with a nice head.
Aroma from toffe, hop and hazelnuts.
A rather dry palate.
A lot of hoppy bitterness with some pleasant sweetness.

Bottle: Dark orange, quite hazy, moderate off-white head that settles quickly to a thin film, lacing is quite nice but carbonation appears to be non-existant.   Soft malty aroma, slight graininess, even slighter hop.   Grainy malt flavor, hop profile is extremely minor.   Luckily as it warms the hop bitterness becomes more noticable.   Body and mouthfeel are fairly average.   Fairly clean finish, soft, or should I say very soft, hop bitterness lingers.   Thanks Dan for the freebie!

On draft at the brewery, 9/1/05: orange-red. Nice big grapefruit tones, quite citric and yummy. I’d like more, please. egajdzis (6589) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Poured a reddish amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, caramel malts, toast, toffee, and a bit of nuts. Taste of grapefruit, citrus fruits, woody hops, pine, and light tobacco. blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2008
on tap at the Ice House, light fruit nose with a decent golden yellow color, some grapefruit citrus flavor with a thin watery finish Pailhead (6540) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Bottle: Cookie and light hop aroma. Pours a transparent amber with a nice off-white head with good retention. Malty up front with a good amount of caramel. Finishes bitter and then the caramel sneaks back into the aftertaste. Well balanced APA.
