12oz bottle pours a dark clear Amber with a large khaki head. Aroma of caramel and toffee, like a chocolate tootsie pop. Taste hits sweet chocolate powder and quickly falls off into becoming empty veggies. Yuck.

12 ounce bottle. Caramel and toffee with a slight candy chocolate taste. Decent amber with a nice twist.

Light amber coloured body with a thin, funky bubbled one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of alcohol, stale malt, light hops and some fresh fruits. Light-bodied; Strong malt notes throughout with a touch of caramel and very light hops noticeable at the end. Aftertaste is pretty bland with only the earthiness from the malt and the light sweetness coming through - no complexity and no depth at all - very simplistic and easy drinking. Overall, a rather lacklustre beer with no real flavours nor complexity, not style or character and just a shell of what a beer could be. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Crystal City Wine Shop (12th Street Location) in Arlington, Virginia on 24-November-2014 for US$2,29 sampled at home in Washington literally a few steps away on 14-December-2014.

Dried leaves, caramel, bran nose, hearty. Clear dark copper, thin head. Bran cereal flavor, lightly sweet. Excceptionally true to style, at least the way I view amber ales.

(2012 US backlog, recollected in abstinent tranquility) Tapped [email protected] 14/09/2012. Reminded me of flat Palm with a helping of root beer. Watery, with diffusely aimed toffee and roast notes popping up. "Mild", hence "our most popular selection"? Satan’s Pony is not a stallion to-be, but a gentle buck mercifully rescued from the glue factory.

Enjoyed a taste of this beer while in the brewpub in Charlottesville, VA. The beer had a mostly clear copper color with a touch of dark amber and a smaller foamy white head with short retention, modest cling and good lacing. It had a rich malty caramel and floral blend aroma mixed with a lighter grain and cereal characteristic, but was slightly muted overall. The taste was a somewhat sweet caramel malt flavor with a slighter grainy-earthy bitterness, and a touch of cereal sourness. The beer was wet and had a watery body with a lighter, average-to-thin mouthfeel, along with low carbonation and fizz.
