Draft at Jolly Pumpkin. Pours coppery with a thin white head and a fair amount of carbonation. A bit of malt on the nose a bit of fruitiness on the tongue. Clean finisher. Solid starter beer. patrick767 (4063) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 24, 2011
draft in Ann Arbor - Pours a clear medium amber color with a small head. It smells mostly of caramel. The flavor is sweet caramel malt with mild hops in a light to medium bodied, bubbly brew. It’s okay. johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a very small off white head. Toasted malt aroma with a hint of caramel and fruit. Big malty flavor with sourdough and roasted nuts. Dry texture with average carbonation. A very drinkable amber. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2011
12oz bottle, purchased for $1.66 from Dutch’s. Clear, amber color. What little head there is, it is very bubbly and active. Lots of bubbles on the side of the glass. The malt, despite it’s too-light body, is actually pretty decent though. It’s toasted and savory, delivering a nice umami taste. ganache (5856) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2017 Bottle. Nose is sweet. Copper pour with a rocky white head. Light-bodied, crackery taste, low bitterness and restrained sweetness, a little dust and sort of dirty. Minimal, minimal hop presence. Very easy-drinking, plain. [2011.08.09: 2.5]
Nephilium (1809) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle marked 03/29/2017. Nose deeply malty, brown and amber malts with dough and earth, some scorch, some crystal malt. Pour a beautiful ruby-copper with a beige head. Taste malty, very nutty, sweet berry notes with ever-present caramel, low but persistent bitterness, only lightly sweet for balance. Flabby fullish body, subtle hops with dough and citrus, subtle prickle. An easy drinker, either fresher than the last bottle or theyve improved the recipe. [2017.06.01: 3.2]
A mild bready aroma starts this beer off. It pours a clear amber, with just a dusting of head. Very mild toasted flavor, with a touch of sweetness. There’s not really any hop bitterness in this beer. Mild and inoffensive, but nothing special. mcnealc31 (255) - Elida, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2011
Nice, crisp amber color. Not much of a head. Just one smell has you knowing you’re going to be in for something different. There is a ton of flavor in this Siren. Lots of malt, caramel, toasted bread, some hops in the finish. Big, round mouthfeel. There’s a bit of a dry, bitter finish.
Tons of flavor, well balanced, and a bigger feel than you’d expect. A very good amber ale. aracauna (3592) - Georgia, USA - JUN 13, 2011

On tap at Jolly Pumpkin. Clear amber with no head. Not much body to it at all but very sessionable. Excellent for a session beer.
