Bottle bonus thanks to phaleslu! Nice clear copper colored pour, average amount of carbonation and a nice hoppy and nutty nose. Flavor is slightly fruity to begin with, then pepper, hops, metallic toastiness and finished a little buttery. A nice solid pale ale, would love to try this on tap!

Draft: the first time I had this, I thought it was just an emrican pale ale, and a mediocre one at that. Very time now, that I get the pleasure, I find new appreciation for it. It pours A dark copper color with a creamy tan head. Aromas are that of toffee, roasted malt, and some nuttiness. It has a floral fruitiness in the flavor profile that I just love. Awesome beer from a great brewery. kaser (6366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Rating this the next day after a foggy evening. From what I remember at yard house, it was orange and tasted really good. Tmoney99 (14860) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2007
Bottle from Party Town. Poured dark amber color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid balanced hoppy and malty aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium smooth bitter finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew.

On tap and in 12 ounce bottle at the OTR Ale Festival. Pleasant citrus/floral aroma, medium brown color with reddish tones, nice juxtaposition of the three malt combo with the Cascade and Fuggles hops, zesty finish. Bottled version is good but draft (which is what I’m basing this rating on) is better, with more hop character and better balance. Bottle version would probably be around 3.2. Another solid offering from Moerlein and, imo, their best yet.

On tap in Loveland, OH. Amber in color with a full off-white rocky head that stays. Pleasant hop flower and bread dough aroma. Taste is maple and caramel sweet malt with mild yet assertive dry hop character. Yummy! Moerlein products are good, but I would suggest this is their best offering. shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 22, 2007
Pours a copper color with an off white head. Aroma is caramel and orange hops. Flavor is caramel, some fruit, and a light bitter orange hop finish. xmarcnolanx (940) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - OCT 25, 2007
Great caramel, citrus aroma. Taste is Slightly bock-like but with a twinge of hop bitterness. Finish is slightly thin. Not that complex, but decent. xuhuckit19 (16) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 12, 2008
Afantastic american pale ale. Being in Cincinnati I know the history of OTR, and the hopiness is very reflective of the bitter attitude that is prevalent Over the Rhine alexsdad06 (10641) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2008
12 oz. bottle and on draft. Pours a clear copper color with a medium sized beige head. Lively carbonation. The aroma is caramel malts and a variety of fruits. The flavor is malty with some sweeter caramel and also roasted character showing up. The finish is more hoppy with some fruity and floral flavors coming through. Medium bodied and pleasant drinking. This was the first of Moerleins new offerings and remains solid today.
