Cask. Hazy amber color, scant edge head. Arona of wet grass, flowers. Taste is grassy and floral citrus. Very nice.

j12601 (13036) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Pouring at the Saturday sessions of Extreme Beerfest. Pours a mostly clear amber brown with a large yellowed beige head. Malt and huge citrus, punchy earthy hops. Medium bodied, sweet and earthy, chewy malt. Thins out a bit, earthy bitterness. Nice profile, but could use a little more body, however for being about 4% it’s doing well. Gentle bitterness on the finish.

hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2012
On tap at Capone’s. Poured an amber color with an average to large sized off white head. Floral, pine, citrus aromas. Very nice hoppy aromas. Tastes of citrus, some fruitiness, pine, and caramel. I wish the tastes followed suit the hoppy aroma.

3.7
kraddel (8761) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 4, 2015
Pours black, small grey head. No real scent. Taste is bitter, chocolate hints, roasted malts. Freah and easy drinkable. Almost like a wood ending, but different.

jredmond (8518) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Draft at pOny with streets and Annie. Pours a deep amber brown body with no head, very light lacing. Aroma is meat, spice, and malt. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of spice, wood, malt and smoke.

3.7
radagast83 (8329) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Draft at Novemberfest at Rustico last weekend. Poured a relatively clear amber-orange color with a slightly off-white head. Aroma was plenty of citrus, with tropical fruit notes and some caramel sweetness. Flavor was tropical fruit citrus notes, light malts. This was light and crisp, highly enjoyable.

3.2
PhillyCraft (7739) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2013
On tap at Old E, pours hazy amber brown with light beige head, not much lacing. Notes of caramel malt, spicy hops, wood, grass, and rye. Palate is a little sticky with a medium body. Bitter and dry. Alright

3.6
AirForceHops (7702) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 30, 2012
750 ml bottle I purchased at the Brewery. # 14 of 1000. Consumed at cellar temperature. Also had a draft 10 oz. sample from a plastic taster cup on the day of the release. Thick fluffy head with lots of lace down the edges. Color is a deep amber / borderline dirty brown. Nose is dank, wet hops. Real Earthy. Medium bread malt backbone with a solid Herbal hop bitterness that lingers slightly after the sip. Caramel and grassy hop notes also found here. Drinks real easy. I would drink this again. But not going out of my way too do so. Slightly above average, lots of flavors for such a low ABV brew.

vtafro (7445) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Draft. Dark pour with tan head . Herbal and spiced aroma. Light herbs and grassy and herbal flavors with some light malt background.

3.4
swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 25, 2013
draft at Coles, Buffalo. Deeper copper pour. rich caramel maltiness with mild resiny bitterness that lingered on palate. Not overly flavorful, easy drinking, decent amber that packs a bigger bitterness than most of the style. Just not a fan of ambers
