On tap, hazy amber pour with a white head. Aromas of oak with notes of maple, sweet malts, and yeast. Flavor is similar with the malts being the center of this brew. Finishes with just a bit of tartness from the yeast. Pretty good. Gerbeer (4021) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 2, 2013

Poured with a clear copper body that naturally grew cloudy from the yeast on the bottom. a nice off white head that had good retention and lace. carbonation seemed restrained, in a good way. Aroma had a nice mix of malts. Sweet bread, some caramel and a slight biscuit note. A mild yeast presence. Flavor was similar. There was a mild wood character in the finish. Slight carbonation in the finish.

Draught @ Rattle & Hum, NYC. Pours hazy amber with small off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit and malt with notes of caramel. Sweetish, malty flavour with fruity notes. Sour-sweetish aftertaste. Nice.

Tap at Sugar Maple. Unfiltered brown-tan. Interesting beer, the oak and malt go together in an odd way. Not really an improvement on the style, just an odd tweak. Caramel amber, some buttery, fruity offness. Old school feel. The oak gives it a sugary, buttery toffee feel that isn’t so great. Quite underwhelming and not so well made, a disappointment, especially at the pricepoint. Headbanger (4021) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2013
750ml bottle 10/2/13 (Binny’s Glen Ellyn)-48° in Stem Glass-Pours an orangish amber with a small white head. Aroma of fruit, yeast, caramel, and sugar. Taste of malt, yeast, grains, and sweetness. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and something I wasn’t expecting. In a good way. BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - SEP 22, 2013

Bottle from Spirits Lacey. Pours out a well carbonated dark brown color with a big off white head. Aroma is of fruity yeast, some earthy/sweet woodsy notes, light cherry. Taste is complex, dried cherries, sweet woodsy notes, caramel, some grainy notes, mild spice and some light fruity yeast that finishes a little dry. badgerben (5328) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Copper color with a large head. Strong bready and malt-laden aroma. Massive barley flavor. Plenty of caramel. Light bitterness. Some orange and yeast character. Vanilla after warming.
