Pours with a nice thick head, looks good, nice and clear with a dark golden hue. I smell bread, along with biscuit and a bit of grapefruit and pine in the nose. Tastes of caramel with some bitterness and finishes dry. It’s a middle of the road American Ale, but a decent one at that.

Pretty good maltiness. Not too much English Ale flavor, but good overall. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tfontana (1148) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Keg pour at the Powder Keg Beer and Chili Festival. Aroma is malty bread more than hops. Appearance is hazy golden brown with white frothy head with nice lacing and very trace sparkle. Taste is medium malty sweetness balanced with mild bitter with some corn chip. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with lively carbonation and bitter finish at the back of the mouth. Overall, a decent beer and true to the style but not a stand out.
