Tap in Cali sometime last year. Orangish pour. Lightly hopped and fruity aroma. Flavor is much of the same. Medium body. Fruits up front, light hops towards the back. Nice touches of sweet malts throughout. Decent beer. Odeed (1803) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 22, 2006
(FREE BOTTLE FROM IRISHBOY)poured an expected amber body with a nice head.flavor and aroma were a mix of seltzer water,and caramel malts. YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2004
Copper with a beige head. Aroma was non-descript. Couldn’t really identify anything as predominating. Very subtle. Moderate carbonation and a medium body. Flavor was a pleasant bitterness and was somewhat refreshing. Nothing remarkable or impressive. Just a decent beer. rmussman (1701) - California, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Sampled on draught. Pours really nice, has a crispness to its aroma. Drinks really nice, full of caramel. Don’t taste the malts too strong, but really refreshing. porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - APR 17, 2008
(Bottle via trade with <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?UserID=3 target=blank>IrishBoy, thanks Richard!) Pours slightly hazy reddish-amber. Five fingers of lightly amberish off-white head recede to a foamy rocky cap. Aroma of caramel, vanilla and pine. Mouthfeel is smooth and shows a nice bit of heft for the style. Very lightly prickly. Flavor is a good dose of both malt and hops - light-medium bitterness overlays some caramel and vanilla maltiness. Lightly piney with a good pinch of bitterness through the finish. Good.

as amber as amber gets, clear, creamy almond colored head, aroma is of very mild citrus hops, fairly sweet nose. flavor is moderately sweet, hops are more dominant in the flavor. thanks mitch! Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 2, 2010
12 oz bottle from Bier Stein. Pours light amber with a gigantic fluffy white head and a lot of blotchy lacing. Aroma of caramel, biscuit, very light floral hops. Tasted very thin with caramel, floral hops, biscuit and some astringency. Not a very good beer at all. tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 17, 2010
