Tasted 4/27/08. 6oz sample from the brewpub. Big bubbled. Filtered with an amber ruby hue. Slight nose. So crisp. So smooth. Touch soggy hops. Medium bodied. Good hop profile and very well melded. Mild effervescence. Mild toast. Spicy with a slight smokey character. Totally solid! My second favorite from this brewery. shrubber85 (11710) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Tap. Butterscotch malt aroma. Hazy amber color with small head and nice lacing. Sweet toffee malt flavor initially with strong bitter citrus hops finish. A good one. ryan (3185) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2010
Doughy nose with bread and herbs with just a touch of berries and dark fruits. The flavor is lightly sweet, light/moderately bitter with a touch of caramel, doughy malts, dusty yeast and light dark fruit. Medium body is soft with moderate carbonation. Nice beer. tjthresh (1873) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - APR 7, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2007 Rating 666. On tap at the brewpub. Very clear amber with a nice white head. Upfront noble hop aroma with a nice toasted malt backbone. Nuts, toffee, and toast, with a rich clean finish. Medium body, and caots the tongue nicely. Very well made. Silphium (3224) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2010
On tap at Dusty’s Tap Room, Okemos. Hazy red body, thick, creamy head that leaves nice lacing. Soapy, piny hops assert slight dominance over Munichy caramels and berries. Nice, herbal, bitter finish. Well-balanced and tasty.

From a growler a day after getting one. The body was dark amber and copper . The aroma was earthy with some floral hops. There was also toffee and iced tea. The taste was black tea with some oranges and light potatoes. A pretty good version of a style I don’t usually like. Rciesla (5607) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 4, 2008

Sampler at the source. Body is medium gold with a little haze. Aromas are mildly malty and peppery hops. Flavor is a little peppery and refreshing.
