Draft: Pours deep mahogany cloudy red with tiny off white head. Not much aroma, what there is is brown sugar, toffee and fresh hops. Flavor is pretty nice fresh malts and hops. Tastes very fresh and bright. Notes of toffee and some diacetyl butterscotch. I dont think its off just a slight diacetyl from the kind of yeast they are probably using. It adds to the overall candyness of this beer. It also has a lot of toasty and roasted notes with mild bittereness and fruit esters. Almost tastes like an irish stout only not dry. Pretty good.

Deep mahogany amber body with a rim-clenching white bubbly head. Bright sweet, candied nose with notes of crsip fresh hops and choice hops. Fruity, lemony, cotton candy finish with a great hop-to-malt balance. Sweet! Bierotherapeut (43) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 7, 2007
Arôme de syrop d’érable et de Miel. Au goût, on perçoit un houblon floral et un léger goût de sucre d’orge Skyview (6099) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Last stop in Portland during ABA Beer Tour 07. On draught at the brewpub pours a semi-clear brownish amber brew (resembling iced tea) with a thin off-white head that quickly dissolves to a fine film. Aroma of multi-grain malt, graoefruit and lemon zest and a touch of pine. Taste is slightly sour, medium bodied and lightly carbonated. Flavors picked up in clude multi-grain malt and pine, but not as over-powering as the Magnum PA. Finish is dry with a lingering bitter aftertaste. harrisoni (19332) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2006
On tap at Lucky Labrador, Quimby St. Portland. Cloudy, red/copper with lasting beige head. Interesting citrus hop aroma, some sour berry as well. Quite a fruity aroma, some gooseberry. Interesting hops and fruits, bit of sourness. I liked it. Herby hop.

Pours amber with a medium head that left some excellent lacing. It has a very good citrus aroma. The flavor has some caramel malts and moderately strong hops that balance well. It closes with a big hops finish. Good stuff. DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 9, 2006
Clear dark amber with a medium white head that disappears fairly quickly. Smells of floral hops and fruity malts. Taste is strong floral that leads into some fruit and caramel taste that carries through to a decent lasting decent coating aftertaste. Pretty good brew.

Draft- This beer reminded me of a hoppy strong ale. Sweet malty flavor with a swett/bitter finish. Poured copper with little head. omhper (25740) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Clear amber. Sweet, fruity and salty. Fairly malty with soft mouthfeel, yet dominated by spicy hops. More of a hop monster than an altbier, but the combination is interesting. 11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - SEP 16, 2005
Tap. Fairly clear light to medium amber colored. Smallish white head which leaves fail lacing. Aroma is floral, citric and altogether hoppy. Light malt aroma which runs caramelly. Medium to light bodied. Grapefruit adn floral flavors abound from the hops. Fair malt balance. Relatively clean tasting. Very hop dominated. Probably out of style but enjoyable.
