Pours copper with a thin white head. Smells of toasted malt and earthy with some peppery splashes. Tastes of light caramel, some appley hints, some spicy hints on the finish. blipp (9929) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 9, 2009
Bottle from Mike at Coles. Pours copper amber with a thin head. Malty aroma, a hint toasty, with some herbal hops. The flavor is toasty and sweet with toffee and a hint of herbal/spicy hops. Decent. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 11, 2009
Bottle, thanks to Mike/Swoopjones @ Cole’s. Copper body, light tan head. Nose is vaguely fecal with roasty malt and crisp hoppiness. Flavor is roasty malt, caramel, a hint of cocoa. Hops come out as does roast in the finish but I can’t get past that nose. lb4lb (2628) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2009
Bottle in trade from ROBORB. Thanks dude! Pours clear and amber with a beige head. Smell is nutty, fruity and malty. Taste is nutty, with a date like sweetness, some dustiness and toasty and tartness as well. Medium to full body with soft to medium carbonation. Pretty good for the style, I thought.

Pours a nice amber color with a thin tan head. Good caramel malt aroma. Taste is smooth with a sweet malt, caramel, toasted malt taste. Easy drinking beer that went down way too fast. jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JAN 19, 2009
12oz bottle-pours a light tan head and amber color. Aroma is light/medium malt-some almost caramel, medium fruit, slight musty. Taste is medium malt-caramel/toffee, secondary spice/herbal hops, some wood. Could be an Oktoberfest or Bock style lager. Thanks decaturstevo for picking this out.

Bottle Knoxville Brewer’s Jam.
Deep amber/orange body that supports a long lasting off-white head.
Light malt aroma. Toasty.
A light bitterness on the front end quickly fades to a velvety dryness.

12oz bottle from nearbeer. Thanks. The aroma was of hay, a dash of brown sugar, toffee, and subdued noble hops. Poured a clear dark orange color. The head was short, white, and reduced quickly to a thin film. Some tattered lace was left behind. Medium bodied and delicately sweet. Spicy, earthy malts dominated the flavor; akin to a mix of fall leaves, toffee, and molasses. Some fleshy and dark fruit flavors emerged at the end. Not bad. Good spring beer. durhambeer (2585) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Bottle from Sam’s. Given the name, I was surprised to see the copper/amber pour coming out of the bottle. Pleasantly surprised, I might add. Malty nose. A bit of floral hops. Sweet notes of caramel and toffee. Toasty. Similar on the palate. Quite drinkable. Another solid offering from this brewery.
