Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a caramel-brown color with a medium. Sized creamy beige head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was malty and sweetish with a touch of caramel. The flavor was tangy, sweet and malty with golden fruits, caramel, a hint of tobacco and faint bitterness. Medium length finish. Medium body and smooth. generallee08 (778) - New York, USA - JUL 4, 2014
It has a nice copper amber color with good clarity lots of visible carbonation. The head on top is small, white in color and It hangs on well makeing some slick lacing on the sides of the glass. In the aroma there are nice citrus and piney hop notes with some hints of sweet malt in the background. The flavor is mildly sweet up front with balanced citrusy and piney hops in the finish. swoopjones (7019) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Copper pour, caramel malts, fruity nose, touch of pineapple juice, ok but too fruit driven Ontbeertaster (2360) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2012
Tap, pours a copper color, light head, aroma is kind of rusty, the flavour is toasty and a light carmel, a light bit flat, overall though it was drinkable SudsMcDuff (8564) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - AUG 31, 2012

Tap at Governors Island Brew Fest, summer 2010. Pours amber-red with a medium, off-white head. Nicely balanced all around. Aroma holds some caramel malts and citrusy hops. Flavor begins sweet and malty before giving way to some citrus an earth bitterness. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Finishes with a nice malt profile and some lingering hops. Nice. rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Presentation: It was poured into a notched pint glass from the tap at the Ellicottville Brew Pub’s Fredonia Location.
Appearance: The body had a good deep amber colored body (duh) with good clarity and some visible carbonation. It carries a small one finger head on top which is just off white in color. It hangs on till about the half way point and makes some nice lace rings near the top of the glass. Buy the end it manages only a thin film.
Smell: There are decent citrus and piney hop notes with some hints of sweet malt underneath.
Taste/Palate: It starts on a mildly sweet malty base with an equal balance of citrusy and mellow piney hops quickly moving in. The hops add a good balance of bitterness and then fade off quickly in the finish. It has an easy drinking soft medium body and smooth texture.
Notes: This for me this was a good all around beer. It’s not a "wow" beer but it is one that I could drink a few of and be quite happy.

FCBF09. Started off good with a touch of sweetness and light hops. Bitter finish I did not care for. jb (3499) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2009
FCBF 09. Nice looking red. A bit grainy, both on the nose and the mouth. Liked it but it did not stand out. zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 15, 2009
(draft @ 2009 Flour City Brewer’s Fest - Frontier Field - Rochester, NY) Amber pour with a fluffy tan head. Aroma is bitter and hoppy with a mild citrus note. Flavor is much the same. Lots of dry hops with some light citrus flavor. Very bitter on the finish.
