Draft. Pours amber with a beige head. Toasted malts, medium sweetness, light nutty notes, hints of earthy hops, and lighter fruity. Nice little malty chugger right here, no off notes, very drinkable.

3.2
acasteel (26) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Lighter scotch ale. Tastes like a burnt sea salt caramel. Light body and heavy carbonation make it an easy quaff.

tgncc (3145) - Bellmore, New York, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Found some old notes on this. The aroma is mlty, caramel, brown sugar sweetness, toasted malts. The appearance is a ruddy brown, off-white head. The flavor s almost exactly like the aroma. High cabonation. Medium in body. Finish is slightly astringent, pine needles. Not bad.

2.3
jerohen (2352) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2007
On draft at Empire State Location. Clear brown coloured. Malty, sugary, some liqourice. Cloying finish. Not really my kind of brown ale.

2.9
puzzl (3264) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 8, 2007
On tap at Times Square location. Dry, grainy taste. Hay, muddy molasses, earth. Aroma slightly earthy but almost unnoticable. Decently drinkable, but a bit minerally. Not too bad; certainly nothing off putting about it or any off flavors.

2.8
JoeMcPhee (9550) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2006
Tap at the Empire State Location. Pale amber beer with a thin white head. Malty and light toasty aroma. Caramel, toffee, soft earthiness. Lingering earthy, woody bitterness. Lightly sweet and a little bit dusty. It’s pretty basic, but not bad.
