On tap at the Racebook inside the Uncasville casino. Clear amber with a thin off white head. Caramel nose, earthy, a touch of floral hop. Weak flavor, sweet grain and caramel, mildly dry finish. Eh. LooseCannon (938) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2008
On draft at the casino. Pours clear copper in color with white head. Aroma sweet and malty. Taste is of roasted malt and lightly bitter with dry finish. Joel (114) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Served on tap at the casino in 2007. Pale red/orange in color with a small white head. Moderate to light carbonation. Taste is somewhat thin and sweet with the overwhelming flavor of apples. No bitterness, no complexity and very dull and bland. Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 31, 2005
I figured since I had to fly back from Europe early that I may as well have some fun this weekend. On draught at the "Brewpub." Pours amber with a flat head. Smells a bit on the rosey side. Taste is of caramel and on the sweeter end. ClarkVV (6825) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 20, 2005
On draught at the casino, 5/18/2005. Medium-brown color, some dark orange and dirty copper tones. Head is small and off-white, and recedes to cover, which lasts. Smells of caramel, bit of yeast and a touch of earthiness. Flavor begins with a big dose of caramel, baked brown bread, and then some bittering hops. A touch of hops flavor on the finish (they use hops pellets here). Body is actually respectable, much better than I expected. Above average extraction, sweet caramel and lightly crisp yeast on the end. Nothing complex, though. The carbonation is a bit high and goes from peppery to flat by the end of the glass. A little thin after it has warmed, on the end. For an American Dark, this is quite good, I thought.

Really not bad at all, for what it is. Came a dark amber with lots of carbonation, and a small layer of head. Aroma is sweet, a touch grainy, with some light spicy hops. Flavor starts with light caramel sweetness, followed by some graininess, and some more spicy hops, and a mild bitterness. Very drinkable, and the best beer I found in the casino, although it was the only one the brewpub had on at the moment. The barkeep said two different beers were in the fermenters.

Slightly sweet malty aroma with some hints of brown sugar. Transparent copper with a small white head. Start is somehwhat sweet with roasty malts coming in the middle finishing with some bitter hop kick. Quite malty--similar to a maarzen. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Clear copper with off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, vanilla, fruity, some malt. Taste is sweet, vanilla, fruity, some malt. No bitterness whatsoever. Light body. Not unpleasant, just sits there. VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 7, 2002
Clear copper. Creamy tan head. Furious carbonation. Clean, dry and well lagered. Weak flavor, barely any hop flavor and only a mild bitterness. Light body. Sour mash malt flavor and a mild caramel accent. Finishes bland. Just a lifeless brew. Pass on this one.
