I did find some flavour in this brew, but had to ignore the metalic undercurrent. The flavour that needs to be brought out is a malty balance. Back to the lab, boys. madsberg (11770) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2006
Bottled: Light amber/range. Small off white head. Sweet, fruity aroma with some cocoa notes. Is herbal and fruity in the flaovurs. Sweet and fruity notes. Is light bitter in the end, but has no long live on the palate. j12601 (11706) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 16, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear coppery ruby browned amber with a vigorous large softly mocha hewn beige head. Very nice caramel malt and big hop presence. Medium bodied, a bit on the sweet side, and I guess all of the carbonation went to the enormous head since the beer itself seems just slightly flatter than I’d like. Nice light bitter hop finish. Decent and sessionable. Should have saved this guy until my curry later tonight. deyholla (11600) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2016
Sampled from the tap at the Pearson location. Pours a clear deep copper with a near white head that dissipates nearly completely. Aroma has sweet grains with some biscuit and toffee underlying. Flavor is much more biscuit forward with sweet grains backing. shrubber85 (11397) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle. Milky orange caramel malt and light orange peel aroma. Sweet creamy orange caramel malt and lightly bitter orange peel flavor. Smooth body. Not a typical APA - very malty. Pleasant.

Bottle... RBSG2005... Amber ale with a creamy, white head. Floral, citrusy aroma with lots of grapefruit and pine. Malty, caramelly flavor. Medium-bitter - medium sweet - medium bodied. Creamy with lively carbonation. Thanks go out to dougshoemaker for the bottle. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 13, 2008
This is a really good beer and underrated in my opinion. Pours a nice amber color with a small head. The aromas of malt, hops and maybe even a hint of whiskey. fFlavor is creamy and malty with a nice hop balance. Very drinkable and super smooth. Reminds me of a Sam Adams Boston Lager, but a bit smoother and less harsh. DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2006
Another awesome ale from my trade with Hogtown Harry. Deep copper pour, with creamy 2-finger off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, noble hops, citrus, and cabernet. The flavor was piney hoppy and citric, with a form caramel malt and some tropical fruits. Silky palate. This is a very good ale, an ale I’d gladly drink every day of the week.

Tall can. Mostly clear amber pour with a minor head. Toffee, some earthy, hops are a bit stale and dead in this. Damn. DuffMan (10425) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 18, 2007
Deep orange-amber, a little hazy with an orange-tinged head. Aromas of citrus oils and soft fruit with some woody notes. These features carry over nicely into the palate, although I found it to be a little thin and overly carbonated. Still very enjoyable.
