Poured into a pint glass, the appearance was a rustic hazy dark orange almost amber color with a thin white foamy finger’s worth of head.
The aroma takes on a sweet roasted nuttiness
rolling over smooth caramel to toffee malts. Sly grassy hops.
The flavor yields to the nutty to caramel and toffee malts first and then opens up with some grassy hops. Dry malty sort of aftertaste with a crisp finish.
On the palate, this one sat sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Mild carbonation. ABV seems good.
Overall, good amber ale that I could have again. WillRunForBeer (2803) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Draft at PPP. Dark amber with a tan head. Scent of molasses, a touch of citrus. Taste is caramel and molasses. Slight bitter to the finish, but not enough to beat the sweet. czar (9609) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 23, 2011

Sampler at the brewpub - Poured a reddish amber in color with a small off-white head. Aroma is slightly hoppy with slight citrus and some malt... aroma not that strong. Flavor is slightly sour, some hops (citrus) and some fruity malts. Again, flavor is not that pronounced. Jut OK... DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - FEB 5, 2009
Draft at brewpub. Mild semi-sweet aroma, mostly malty caramel. Deep orange-amber body, off-white head. Flavor is somehow sourish, slightly unpleasant, with a bit of malt. Clean and refreshing finish. Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 16, 2008
Draught. Nose is robust cascade hops which slightly enticing to a fresh brew, light fruits linger in the background. One dimensional but decent aroma. Pours a muddy brown color with decent head retention. Initial taste is lights fruits, malt character and caramel. Mid palate to finish has a good hop character. Palate duration is above average. Decent head retention but average. Beerdedone (3480) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2008
