Bottle. Color is amber is medium white head. Not much to the aroma. Taste has a little hop and malt to it. Good session beer, but not much else.

(Draft) Fruity sweet nose. The beer was frothy, malty, and earthy. Well made and enjoyable session beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Well made session beer. Amber colored translucent, small white head. Malty sweet, a beer you could drink all day and even many a non-beer geeks will like it. Hop with fuggles. Sweet favor, little or no bittterness. Sweet finish.

Pours amber with an average white head. Looks almost like an IPA. Good amount of hops in this one. A well done beer.

Pours a very pale orange/amber color with tons of tiny floating yeast. Spicy/floral aroma with some hops. Mildly malty flavor, some spices like an APA, and a pretty good hop hit at the finish like an IPA. Mouthfeel is average--not very rich, not too watery. ...So what?

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2003 Appearance is a light copper color. VERY, VERY cloudy from all the suspended yeast from the bottle-conditioning. Some folks cringe on yeast. I really don't. It can ad so much depth to a brew. The Flavor is smooth and well balanced with a slightly bitter finish. Fine Stuff!

Had this on tap while at the Tage Inn in Boston. Came golden brown with a small head. The nose was odd. Light hop and malt character and some sweetness as well. The tongue was comprised of hops and bubblegum. Not regular bubblegum, but the kind that used to come with baseball cards and was always stale. Definitely odd. It finished well enough. I was hoping for more hop character but it was lacking. It finished kind of weak but was still a decent beer.

Tap. Light brown with medium head. Decent English malt backing, with a more American hop bite. Good session beer.
