j12601 (12982) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 2, 2016
On tap at the brewery, also somehow got a nitro pour. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Gets some lace on the nitro. Medium bodied, soft sweet malt, a touch of fruit and malt. Slow earthy bitterness into the finish. Decent but forgettable.

jcwattsrugger (12506) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - NOV 6, 2007
on tap-pours a thin white head that laces and amber color. Aroma is light caramel, citrus. Taste is medium malt-caramel/nutty, balanced nicely with (English and northwest?) citrus hops-slight bitter. OK/mild carbonation.

JorisPPattyn (10061) - BELGIUM - APR 20, 2006
Draught Just a little white rim over clear foxy ale. One wants to be the nose bi/uttery, but it isn’t really. Some malts, ever so slightly bready and chestnut flour. Soft sweet taste with just a suggestion at diacetyl. Has some discreet bitterness hiding in the shadows, but not really hoppy. Soft creamy MF, nearly medium bodied, only very restrained burning, alcohol nonexistent. Quite drinkable actually, just not very assertive, let alone great.

Orange brown amber beer, thin white head. Decent toasty aroma/flavour. Brown sugar malts, some toffee. A hint of diacetyl.

3.5
3fourths (9351) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2005
Draft at the brewery
Golden orange and clear appearance. Roasty, nutty flavor with some wet charred and toasty bred malt flavors. Hops are oily, metallic and smooth. Smells a little sweaty.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2006 Draught. Wow, I love this beer. I haven’t had it in a couple of years. I’ll have to re-rate soon. The malt complexity comes out and balances the hops. Yum. A very drinkable tasty beer.

BuckeyeBoy (8204) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 6, 2007
On Tap at Maritime Pacific Seattle. Pours out a nice hazy amber topped with a small head. A little malt and light wood. I also picked up a little metal odd.
