On tap at Brattleboro’s Marina Restaurant.
Aroma is malty with a bit of caramel. Appearance is an amber red with off white head. Taste is very drinkable, but nothing special jumps out. Light bodied. Overall, nothing exciting, but a solid drinkable amber ale.

Wood, nut, and citrus in the aroma. Flavor starts slightly sour and fruity. Finish is a little sweet and dry, with a little peppery spice. Not what I expected, but not bad. ben4321 (6739) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/20/12

Aroma: The nose is heavy on dark fruit/raisin, some toasted malts, and a little earthy hops
Appearance: A mostly clear reddish-orange color with a an inch of off-white head and sticky, heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is caramel malts, some bread, a little fruit, and some (unintentionally?) tart/sour yeast
Palate: The body is medium, it has an average-to-lively carbonation, and a mildly astringent finish
I don’t what they were shooting for here, but it didn’t really work for me. This beer is not terrible, but, for me, it just felt like a miss all the way around.
Draft. Hazy golden amber color, medium white head. Aroma if lightly spiced caramel. Taste is slightly peppery caramel.

A golden amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, pleasant caramel malt with light British hops, clover, nice. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with nice grassy British hops, smooth.

Pint to pint, cloudy ginger orange sporting airy foam reducing quickly to near transparent lid. Immediate yeasty citris rind come to the fore, some toffee rounding tangy edge. Through to finish retaining substantial sourdough bitterness. Expected tad more malt but still flavorful. jgb9348 (6482) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Great deep amber coloured body with a copper glow and a perfect, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, toffee, strong hops and a touch of alcohol. Medium-bodied; Assertive malt flavour with some light fruits, a lot of hops and a good fresh herbal flavour. Aftertaste is a great balance of the hops and malt, a touch nutty and a little caramel sweetness at the end - a decent amount of body on the finish too. Overall, a very nice beer - especially for the style, definitely worth trying if you can find it! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on18-November-2011 for US$4.49 sampled at home in Washington on 25-February-2012.

Nice change of pace for me, a perfectly balanced Amber Ale and incredibly full of all sorts of my favorite flavors corby112 (2813) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Pours a dark golden orange color that’s almost completely opaque except for bright golden orange edges. Half finger off white head that quickly settles into thin ring. Sporadic spots of lace left behind.
Slightly earthy aroma with spicy hop notes, pine needle and subtle citrus fruit. Countered by sweet malt notes and bready yeast.
Medium bodied and fuller than expected with a blast of juicy hops up front that linger over the sweet malt backbone into a slightly bitter dry finish. Subtle floral quality with some dry piney character but the hops are mostly citrus flavored with hints of mango, orange peel and grapefruit. Sweet malt backbone with hints of caramel and biscuit with alcohol heat toward finish. Decently balanced but sweetness from alcohol and malt take away from the hops a bit.
