A good solid pale ale, but the aging does little for a beer of this ABV. It was reasonably watery, even for the style. Would go down well in summer. Decent. msante79 (2225) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Bomber. Pours dark amber with nice thick tan head. Aroma is sweet malt, toffe, caramel and some hops. Flavor is malty with hops, toffee and caramel. Nice mouthfeel and carbonation. Pretty solid brew in my opinion. snuffla (175) - Chch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 1, 2009
Obviously Iím not a fan of oaked beers since i donít really rate this. Last of my six pack I bought at the beerstore and Iíve been hoping iíd grow to love it but nah. Spicy nose with hints of rosewater, body tastes gently woody with some sweetness. Not a bad beer, just not one for me. Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUL 25, 2009
An amber beer with a decent head. Aroma of sweet malt. Taste is very smooth & goes down very easy. A little caramel, slightly bready & had a creamy mouthfeel. A very smooth beer with the tap version very creamy compared to the bottle. nimbleprop (8297) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 25, 2009
One of Firestone Walkerís flagship brews. Had a few bottles of this. Translucent amber with a frothy white head. Malty aroma with a bit of bread and crackers. Flavor is caramel malts, sticky fruits. Finish is dry.

On tap. Amber with a small head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and an almost earth hop bitterness. The flavor is a great balance of sweet and bitter, leaning on the sweet side. Medium body with an average carbonation. A pretty easy drinker. jrob21 (3663) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Pours an amber color with almost no head. Candi sugar and caramel aroma. Flavor is caramel and nut up front and the finish is smooth with a bit of light grassy hops. Still a fan of american hop profiles but this one is a little more pronounced on the hop side than what I am used to from the english style. Creamy texture to this too makes this go down smooth.

Sparkling amber,nice beige head.Vague malt nose.Light easy drinking malt profile, nearly undetectable hops. A session beer, not much here nearbeer (5373) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 26, 2009
12 oz. Clear copper with a lasting inch of foam. Aroma of clean-spiced caramel apple. Flavors of caramel, cheerios, light melon and citrus, some dry wood and a hint of resin on the finish. Near medium body is smooth and sessionable, and just dry enough on the finish.
