Tallahassee, Fl. - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a light copper with a thin white head. Grainy aroma with some spicy notes. Flavor is a tad muddled - but interesting. Some brief spiciness with a hint of caramel, very faint citrusy bitterness. Moutfeel is slightly carbonated - just the right amount of liveliness. chriso (7583) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2005
Another Starr Hill brew where part (or all?) of the output comes from Old Dominion. Deep gold colour. Mild malt aroma. Dry malt flavour. Slightly smoky. There’s a touch of hay, but the hops are very muted. OK, but it didn’t really get my mojo working. On tap at the Starr Hill Brewery.

Appearance: amber brew with mid average looking top, bit generic , leaving fizz after 30 seconds or so.
Nose: bready light nose ,bit citric with some hop. Fruity side to it.
Flavor/Palate : mid bodied. Mid carbonation that was neatly weaved into quiet soft malts. Slight fruity feel with citric hop finish.
Draft at the Schockoe Craft Beer Festival in Richmond, 8/26/06: An amber beer. Sugary mlat and an almost tangy coppery metallicness. Nice bitterness in the finish. I liked this fest-style beer. mansquito (6695) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Total Wine, Chantilly 12oz ($2): Pours an amber color with a white head. Aroma is caramel malts and a bit of hops. Taste is mostly caramel malts. Subdued sweetness is present throughout. No off-notes. This is a simple session and seems to only want to be a simple session. For that, I can’t fault this beer.

Decent lager, nothing overly exciting, but it is pretty drinkable... obguthr (6530) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 12, 2009
Tea and hay aroma. Cloudy golden, medium yellow head. Malty tea flavor. Good balance. A very flavorful lager. Suttree (6466) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 29, 2009
I was surprised how much I liked this one. I’m generally not a huge fan of viennas, but this one as nicely bold and assertive. Nice mix of caramel malt and and a dryish, hoppy finish. jgb9348 (6388) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 23, 2004
Amber coloured body with no head at all to speak of. Aroma of caramel, toffee, a bit of hops and some malt. Medium-bodied; Malty flavour with some hops. Aftertaste is clean with a bit of malt leftover. Overall, decent, but not amazing! I sampled this on ’pseudo-draught’ at the Old Dominion Brew Festival 2004 on 27-June-2004 in Ashburn, Virginia.

Bottle courtesy of dcachur. Pours gold with a white head. Smells of dry malt, oranges. Tastes dry and grassy with a doughy finish.
