Light, drinkable, but unremarkable. Pretty smooth malty taste that is nicely balanced. Aroma is fairly weak & has a standard red pour. Ok for a hot summer day but otherwise forgettable. dlovell2 (2213) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 19, 2015
Pours cloudy amber with white head. Aroma is caramel malt and floral hops. Flavor is caramel malt with fruit and mineral notes. Finishes citrus and floral. A bit over carbonated. AdamChandler (5113) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Burnett amber appearance. Nose is daily weak. Nice mouthfeel. Overall pretty clean but mostly flavorless. Hints of biscuit malts radagast83 (8193) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Split a 22oz bottle with some friends from work, one that picked it up while in Vermont. Poured a pretty amber-red color with a small wispy off-white head. Aroma was solid caramel malts. Hops don’t linger in this one - it’s mostly malt. A lot more enjoyable than I expected. Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2012
22oz bottle picked up at the brewpub in Norwich, VT. Pours a murky, deep amber colored body with a thin, beige head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is caramel with a light sweetness, some toast, and a somewhat dry earthy hop backing with some fruit notes. Flavor is similar. Lightly sweetened caramels with a touch of bread alongside a dry, toasty, earthy, light bitterness. Finishes with some fruit notes before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Medium-light, smooth body and a light-medium carbonation. Overall, this isn’t bad at all, but its fairly boring. Dry and easy drinking with a light caramel, toast, and earth. Eh...

On draft at the brew pub. Amber in color with a light red hue. Light white head. Not much on the nose. Light hops maybe a little caramel. Malty red ale taste. johnnnniee (4376) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 14, 2011
On tap at the Norwich Inn
Pours a deep brown with ruby highlights and thinnish off white head that says goodbye after the first sip. Smells of toffee and caramel with some earthy bitterness that barely cuts through the sweetness. Slightly fruity esters add a touch of complexity to the aroma. Taste is sweet and malty with toffee and caramel mixed with a hint of mineral water and earthy hops. Surprisingly dry finish for the medium bodied ale. Moderate carbonation level with a sweet sticky mouthfeel. Of the 4 I had at the Norwich this was probably my least favorite. It’s an ok English style ale but not really to my liking. jtclockwork (16856) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2011

Bottle; poured an amber color. Aroma of red and sweet malt, earth, bread and caramel. Flavor was basically the same; a bit on the sweet side; but solid.
