12oz can via trade. Deep amber with a medium off white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, biscuits and herbal tea. Flavor is biscuit malt, medium hop bitterness and some caramel. Medium body with average carbonation. Pretty good, kind of a cross between an ESB and Pale.
On clearance at Total Wine & More for $5/6-pack. Seems about average at best for the style. Not much aroma. Has a hazy medium orange to gold appearance. Medium malt and hops...ok balance. Drinkable...just not much exciting here. jjgmd (2164) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2017
Can. Pours a very dark deep copper rusty pour with a long lasting beige head. Nose is deep pine and resin and hoppy. Taste is bitter with deep pine and resin. Taste is bitter, hoppy with pine and resin, drinks like a WC IPA rather than an APA. Quaff Score 6 / 10 gyllenbock (9184) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2017
On tap at Small Bar, San Diego.
A bit hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, floral hops, light malt and some caramel. Similar taste. The body was medium as was the bitterness.

Wow, draft at freshcraft, pours a yuengling shade with small head. Clear copper. Smell and flavor are the sweetest malt, wood, dirty malt, and gross fruit. Medium bodied. God awful graham_murphy (681) - - JUL 16, 2016
Wow. Can’t figure out if it’s a strong pale ale, a weak barley wine or a hoppy amber. Whatever it is I like it. Surprisingly sweet with lots of orange and marmalade from the Golding hops. Didn’t know they had it in them! Great spicy aroma and lingering bitterness. Guess it’s a winter beer for the sweetness but I’ll have it any time of the year.

12oz can from Valhalla’s Goat. Orange brown, reasonable head. Spicy toffee hop aroma. Creamy malty hop flavour. Bitter sweet aftertaste. More an amber than a pale ale. A bit too syrupy sweet and malty for me. Evilkniamhel (955) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 3, 2016
