Tap at the brewpub. Aroma toasty with rich caramel and toffee. Flavor the same with increasing, subtle fruits (berries), dried fruits. Rich, toasty, and grainy on the tongue. Nice. adrian910ss (2572) - Doylestown, PA, USA - FEB 5, 2009
On draft at the brewery. Pours a clear coppery amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of bread, malt and toffee. Taste of bread dough, light malt and toffee. egajdzis (6499) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2009
Poured a lightly hazy red amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, toffee, floral, light citrus, and a bit of roast. Taste of caramel, light roast, cocoa, toast, grass, and a bit of tobacco. hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Deep amber/copper in color with a small lasting off white head. Aroma of toasted malt, molasses, some bread and a touch of roast. Taste is malty, lightly sweet with molasses, mild roast, a touch of chocolate and light yeast dough. Very easy drinking, but with a decent body, especially for the ABV. Very light bitterness in the finish, very well done. blipp (9123) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 21, 2009
Draft. Pours deep amber with a thin off white head. The aroma is toasty and sweet. The flavor has fruity sweetness, roasted grains, and molasses. Extremely drinkable.

on tap at the brew pub, had to have this one just to try them all. suprising amount of flavor packed into this mild. chocolate, and slightly tart flavors lead the way. quite a bit of berry bite to it. definitely the best bitter I’ve had. could drink this for days.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a deep dark amber with a thick tan head. Aroma of sweet malts and raspberry seed. Flavor of roasted malt, coffee grounds, and sweet finish. An interesting beer and my first mild ale. Nice, well-crafted.

On tap at the brewery. Mild woody notes, like a cask ale, with hints of biscuit and dark roasted malt. Light hop character. Dark copper-amber clear with thin off-white lacing head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts with dry roasted grains, light brown sugar, and muted hop bitterness. Carbonic acidity. Very mild dark, with clean finish and a light bitter after. Well balanced. A nice session ale. Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2008
A Christmas gift / miracle from santoslhalper. Pours a clear amber color with a nice reddish tint to it. Aroma is malty and grainy. A decent sweetness. Flavor has kind of a strange dichotomy of roasted coffee and citrus that adds a sort of acidic brightness. Very complex. Could have wanted a little bit more carb, but I am pretty sure the growler was a couple days old. Finishes with a roasty, nutty, dryness. Very solid mild. dpjuart (1112) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2008
Growler pour courtesy of santoslhalper himself. Pours amber with brown hues. Eggshell, rimming head. Nose is caramel malt with a touch of roast and smoke. Taste is caramel with roasted flavor and slight bright fruit. Good dose of bitter, dry and lingering throughout the finish. A rather complex taste for the style. Tasty brew with great mouth feel.
