on tap at brewpub. hazy almost cloudy golden orange with a minimal off-white head, some retention. grains - wheat and rye, spicy-peppery, citrusy, bit of caramel, herbs and booze. moderate carbonation, light body - oily, short herbal finish. lame esb interpretation. rondphoto (4489) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Hazy medium amber, good rim head, specks of lace. Taste is semi-sweet caramel malt that grows nicely to a clean finish. At the back edge, it all turns nicely bitter. Late and unexpected, things are superbly balanced. Well done. AirForceHops (7679) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Draft @ brewpub on 28 Nov, 2012. Proper glassware. Hazy copper pour with thin white head leaving light lace down the sides. Nose is caramel and some dank, muskiness. Not much hop presence and that’s fine because it does have an English feel to it. Malt with a weak Earthy bitterness in the finish. Medium in body. It was served to cold. It got much better as it warmed. Would be nice on cask. radarsock (1207) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Had on-tap @ Portsmouth. Pours a copper alloy amber with carbonation not even a fingernail in length. Tastes and smells of grass trimmings, caramelized sugar, wet soil, spice and spent grains. Ends slightly more bitter. mcox90 (2119) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 28, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Served in a pint glass. Pours copper/amber with a thin white cap. Light malty aroma. Flavor is pretty much the same. Malty, but kind of bland. Not much going on. Moderate palate with low carbonation.

Pours deep, clear amber into an English pint. Little to no head. Caramel and resin aromas. Soft with sweet bread and mild resin finish. Goodgrief (2056) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Dark copper pour, one finger head and nice lacing. Lots of toasted caramel like malt, grainy sweet with a very mild hop finish, but enough to make it well balanced. Rich, full, smooth mouthfeel...a delightful feel on the tongue. Another solid beer from my favorite place on earth. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2010
Bomber- PPRBSG 09. Pours a deep copper light amber with a thin lasting head. Aroma is sharp cheesy hairy earthy aroma- floral hops, toasted sharp crystal malts, molasses sweetness. Flavor is sweet caramel, toffee, with floral hops, herbs, grass and earth, a bit metallic as well, along with some mineral bitterness in the end- Not bad. malrubius (2983) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JUL 31, 2009
Time to catch up before BCTC. Bottle at PilsnerPeter’s Spring Throwdown. Thank to everyone who brought great beer and ribs and pickles and everything! Amber with ring and lace. Mild if any aroma. Toasted caramel and nuts with medium bitter clean dry finish. Ok. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 20, 2009
Medium brown pour with hints of red. Medium caramel malt with a hint of pine on the nose. Slight sweetness, light caramel malt, and a nice finishing bitter. Thin and watery with good carbonation.
