Brilliant amber color/ beige sheen. Fruity, mint, pine sap, spicy aromas. Medium bodied with average co2. Dry grainy caramel, dusty pale malt flavors with some mild dry herbs/spices--decent. ttutony (950) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Light brown with a creamy white head that thins after a short while. Nose is fruity, grassy, and nutty malt. Medium body. Bread and nut malt flavors, somewhat grassy hops, balance leans toward the maltier side. kwoeltje (2234) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - NOV 1, 2011
(bottle) copper with off white head. Crisp but light grassy hops with mild biscuit malt aroma. Flavor was well balanced biscuit malt and grassy hops. TheGent (657) - , Massachusetts, USA - NOV 1, 2011
a bomber poured out. Pretty clear bubbly amber color with finger high pure white head. Aroma is grass/ leaf and spice hops along with some felt and grain. Taste starts a well round sweet with good bitter. Higher carbonation washes palate clean at the end. An American beer that would do well even in Bohemia jw0406 (1315) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 31, 2011

From tap at Sunset Grill. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is crisp citrusy and slight grassy hoppy. Toasted malty, light grassy and caramelish. Bitter, light grassy and mild herbal finish. ilovedarkbeer (2752) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Pours a copper color with a large pillowly head. Notes of apricots, sunflower seeds and clover. A bit astringent but over all very good. craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Draft at Churchkey. Amber pour. The nose holds really nice spicy hops, lemon zest, and a lovely earthy, dry hop character. The malt is mostly nut and caramel but it balances well. Solid stuff. mansquito (7136) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Whole Foods Market, P St, DC 22oz ($6): ours an amber/copper color with a slightly off-white head. Got them biscuits, them breads, subdued hoppage, bready yeast, and a few other things in the aroma. Slightly bitter taste, a touch of sugar. Really nice malt backbone. Good balance throughout. Nice caramel flavours. English ale with a really nice Czech feel.

22 ounce bottle - $5.99 at Olde Crabapple Bottle Shoppe in Alpharetta, Georgia. Best By: 12/15/11.
Appearance: Pours a rich amber-brown body, great clarity, and capped by a tall, frothy, beige head. Head settles but sustains.
Smell: Biscuits and coarsely cracked barley grains with a faint, background hint of something sweet. Lightly fruity. Grassy, herbaceous scent of over-brewed black tea leaves.
Taste: A nice commingling of bready, toasty, biscuity malts with a thin glaze of caramelized table sugar sweetness. Low fruitiness around mid-palate. Herbal, zesty hop character, a bit earthy and tea-like, and delivering a sufficient bitterness to keep it hop-forward, though not particularly bitter. Grows more grassy as you go along. Smooth finish, still fairly black tea-like.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Modestly creamy mouthfeel.
Overall: A pleasing, fairly well-balance ale.
