Served as a copper/amber with a holding, off-white head that left a solid sheet of creamy lace. Hopcit aroma comes across light & flowery with citrus over mild malts. Delicate and intriguing. Flavor falls from hoppy-goodness to butterscotch and sweetened iced tea. For an ale this seemed lagered. Creamy mouthfeel. This was a strange, enjoyable beer, and my favorite of the day.

Had this on draught in South Barrington, Illinois. Copper color with a thick white head that dissipated slowly, nose of barley and roses with a taste balanced by just the right amount of hops for me. This was good. Arnie (274) - Chicagoland, IL, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2006
On tap at the brewry. More mild than I expected, with a light coppery color, medium head, and hints of hops on the nose that were not powerful enough in the beer. Drinkable, and refreshing, but not a favorite. Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2005 I liked the brownish-red look and foamy tan head of this beer. The aroma was nice and malty with some good roasted malt tones to it. Good in the mouth, if slightly watery, with rich roasted malt flavors, caramel, and a nice hop counterbalance. Robust malty finish.StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 29, 2005

Clear bronze in color with a thin off-white head and some nice lacing. Hoppy aroma, complimented with caramel, pine and carnations, leading me to believe that this cat’s going to be sweet and balanced. Taste is in line with the style, yet watery and insignificant. Some caramel malts sweetness encasing an expected mixed bag of nuts flavor in the distance. Mild hop bitterness. Definitely not a show stopper.

Draft sampler at Millrose. Good, lightly "ambered" malt smell. Some Vienna malt flavor, but very mild in hops. Merely average. JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - JUN 14, 2008
Dark amber color with a modest off-white head. Pale malt and light fruit scents. Flavors match the aromas. Likely the best of the ones I’ve tried from here. hotstuff (5158) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 28, 2009
Draft at Millrose Restaurant, South Barrington, IL. Small white head with good retention, transparent copper body, no carbonation noted, and one ring of lacing. The aroma was malty, sweet and lightly hoppy. Ditto for the flavor. The mouthfeel was smooth and this is a light bodied beer. Drinkable, but not outstanding.
