I liked the yeast and hints of gingery sweetness. I thought it well balanced, if a little under stated. cbrixius (136) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2007
Poured a dark amber, relatively clear, nice thick off white head. Smell was bready, sweet and yeasty. Not very enjoyable as it was pretty bland and overcarbonated. Maybe the combo of dark and light malts and didn’t do it for me. MattShizzle (616) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2007
Bottle - from sampler pack. Dark copper color. Pretty good. Tastes/looks more like a brown ale than a red or amber. jonnabrix (137) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2007
This pours a deep amber with a small off-white head. Weak aroma of roasted grains and malt. Flavor is a nice balance of malt and hops, with moderate carbonation. Despite the low ratings here, I enjoyed this one. rocbyter (2134) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - APR 20, 2007
Moderate malt aroma with hints of fruits and coffee. Amber color and fizzy. Small antique white head. Sweet malty taste that thins out nicely on the palate to a smooth finish.

Pours a clear redish brown with a very minimal head. Has a sweet malty flavor with a little toffee. An O.K beer but nothing to write home about. dberger624 (1028) - Voorhees, New Jersey, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Draft at the Grey Lodge in Philadelphia. Nothing really exciting here. Had a little bit of a malt bite. Slight dry aftertaste. alobar (3857) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2007
Pours a clear amber-red with no head. Next to no aroma-some hops, malts. Taste is reasonably smooth with some bitterness at the end. Overall, a very average beer. hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2006
brewtopia 10/21/06 amber in color, go figure. Aroma is caramel malts/light chocolate. Taste is caramel, light chocolate, light amount of roast, with a balanced finish. PilsnerPeter (3049) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 22, 2006
Brownish red, aroma is bitter raisins and a soysauce character. Sweet maltyness predominates. Hint of buttery sweetness. Thin and one dimensional. Hardly any bitterness, watery feeling.
