Bottle. Pours clear gold with a thin off white head. Relatively flavorless and inoffensive, with some light malty sweetness and relatively low bitterness. Not awful. trujahwarrior (515) - Monroe, Washington, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Pours an amber color with a off white head with light lacing. Smells of light malt, caramel, and pine. Tastes of caramel, toffee and a good hop presence for an amber ale. Mouthfeel is thin and watery. Overall this is a good amber for the price and one of the better beers I’ve tried from Henry Weinhard’s. nick76 (4403) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2012
The aroma is weak with adjunct malt, yeast, and grassy hops. The appearance is amber with a small had. The taste is like the aroma with a nice caramel malt quality finish. The palate is average. Overall an average beer. tympanic (168) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Why this showed up at my local Alabama Piggly Wiggly, I don’t know. I’m just happy that it did, because that store and its beer supplier don’t care much about stocking anything other than the macro ’murkin drainpours.
This beer: a fine example of its style. Will buy again at Piggly Wiggly, probably not anywhere else. Ughsmash (7502) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Bottled. Poured clear, lighter orange with a short beige head. The aroma picked up toasted caramel and redder fruits.. metallic and medicinal accents.. not so good. The flavor found sweet caramel and fruits with herbal and metallic notes plus sharp carbonation around.. finished sharp and a little bitter. Lighter-bodied and not all that pleasant to drink.

Aroma: The nose is malty, with some caramel, a little butter, nuts, earth, and some crystal malts
Appearance: It pours a clear amber color with a small off-white head, and some streaky lace
Flavor: it starts malty, but gets kind of buttery quickly, and has some off hay-like hop bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it does not have a great mouthfeel, and the finish is a touch off too
I was not a huge fan of this one. Though it has some decent components to the early parts of the palate, the middle and late palates both have a lot off about them, and that leaves a somewhat unpleasant lasting impression.
Bottle. Poured an amber color with a smaller tan head that went rather quick. Left a little bit of lacing on the glass. Weaker caramel, nuts and wood aroma. Very thin and watery body. Flavor was caramel and malts. Very weak mouthfeel. Not a lot to this beer. Very disappointing. thechandler (593) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Pours a nice amber color with a light head. Aroma is faint and slightly sweet. Flavor is solid, medium-bodied....Nothing special at all, but a completely drinkable, decent beer. S_Side_Smitty (802) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Pours a beautiful clear amber with a thick off-white head. Aroma is sweet malts and caramel with a faint hoppy pine background. I’m not sure why the score is so low on this one, but this ale seems really well balnced flavor-wise. Initially you taste mellow resinous pine that transforms into a very agreeable malty bitterness for the finish. The caramel sweetness remains throughout. This would make a great sessionable amber ale. AR (1002) - Georgia, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Mild aroma. The beer has a scratchy feel to it. Orange malt flavor with some perky hops. Flavors ok but not blended smoothly.
