Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Sweet caramel malty aroma with some lighter hoppy notes. The flavor is well balanced, with caramel malts, some light fruity notes, and floral hops. Decent. radagast83 (8072) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Tap at brewery. Poured a light amber color, small white head. Aroma was sticky, sweet malts, light hint of hops. Boring, but still drinkable. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2011
On tap at the brewpub in July 2009. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a moderate amber color with a thin white head and not much lacing. The nose brings forward some really faint notes of caramel and some bread. The flavor doesn’t produce much more, as there is really just some toasted bread and light caramel. Decent feel with adequate carbonation, but there really isn’t much here to carry through.
Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the brewpub: Transparent copper amber with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of lightly sweet toasty caramel malts with a touch of grassy piny hops. Starts with decent fullness and some light grainy caramel sweetness with hints of light fruits before a drier grainy bitter finish with a hint of tartness. An ok amber ale, but could use a little refinement. MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2009
(Sample Date: 1/17/2009 Source:South Street Brewery) Sampler at the brewery. Too smoky at bar to detect any aroma. Clear medium amber golden. Light fruityness, some grain in flavor. Touch of a winy note. Light body with a thin mouthfeel. Finish is clean but otherwise unremarkabe. Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2009
Draft. Pours an amber color with a fine off white head. Nose is very light with some roasted notes and a touch of malt. Medium carbonation with a very light, watery, dry mouthfeel. Light roasted malt, caramel, and a touch of ash. Short and very clean finish. Left good lacing on the glass, but that was really all that was good. Pretty watery and tasteless. beerandIT (300) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2009
Lighter bodied. Very smooth amber ale. Malts on the palate, hint of hops but they are definitely hidden. Clean finish. Classic amber for the style. Not too much on really. Lacing the glass ok. phukktifano (159) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 26, 2009
Dark amber with light foam. Hops, roast, sour malt aroma. Flavor is the same with a pleasant floral aftertaste.
