Brilliantly clear tawny brown with a decent sized long lasting beige head. Caramel and earth dominate the nose with a light toffee rounding it out. Light fruity flavor with bit toffee caramel and earthy flavor. Sweet almost syrupy mouthfeel moderate carbonation. Not a bad beer, but certainly reminds me of what everyone sold in the mid 90’s.

Sample on tap at the brewpub. Clear copper brown pour with thin white head. Aroma is malty, light caramel, light toasted notes. Taste is bitter, earthy hop flavors, caramel. Palate is med-light bodied with med carbonation. Ok. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - OCT 15, 2015

This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy dark amber color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a light minute. Semi-formal lacing represents around the glass.
The smell starts off with a rich roasty nutty to caramel to toffee character with subtle sticky pomme-like fruity notes. Light toast as well shows a light balance.
The taste was mainly malty sweet with the rich toasty effects running over the caramel, nuts, toffee and light fruits. A nice light sweet sticky caramel aftertaste runs into a wet sticky finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly light allowing the caramel and toast to really pull the stickiness along my tongue.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good Amber ale that I would have again. BVery (11361) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUL 9, 2012

Clean amber pour with low carbonation in the body and a thin white head. The nose is caramel biscuit, with bread, fruit, and herbal grassy hops. The flavor is caramel, biscuit, and floral spicy hop incarnations. Medium body with light carbonation. mcox90 (2131) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 9, 2010
On tap at Millys. Pours red/amber with a 3/4" off white head. Sweet malty nose with biscuits and honey. Smooth, but somewhat light palate. Low level carbonation. Nice, sweet flavor with a hint of hop bite. A lot like Killians, but way better. puboflyons (3490) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 21, 2009
On tap at the tavern. The pour is copper red with a thin beige head. The aroma is very pleasant with its sweet malts. A medium mouthfeel with a honey-like texture. The taste is sweet and rich with nice bitter hops. A nicely done red recipe. akullgren (1) - Greenfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 21, 2009 does not count
