A light and crisp beer with a definite sweet note (not readily identifiable as grape). Dry semi sweet finish. Not bitter. Refreshing.
Bottle. Clear amber pour. Nose of pale malts, grape and grain. Taste of grape, caramel malts and fruit. Decent. bhensonb (15489) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Interesting fruit aroma with some caramel malt backing. Beautiful copper/amber color with a white ring for head. Medium body with fizzy/creamy carbonation. Flavor is a bit papery, and arguably a bit vinous. There could be fruit of a grapey sort. There is certainly enough hop to balance the sweet. It’s an interestingly different "pale ale". I wouldn’t drink it constantly, but it is something that would be good every so often. djd07 (15260) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 26, 2008

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2008 Bottle from Sam’s Quik Stop in Durham. Pours brown-ish read with a medium sized head. Disappears quickly but leaves a nice lacing. Strong aroma of cinnamon and other spices, with a hint of maple. Taste is sweet with some graininess and a dry finish. Honey/maple comes through on the aftertaste, Kind of a thick feel. Better than your average Sam Adams. BeerandBlues2 (13638) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 21, 2008
