On tap at the squam lake inn. Medium brown pour. Toasted malt aroma. Hints of grass, citrus. Very uninteresting amber, toasted malt flavor with a hint of grapefruit. Moderately thin, dry finish.
I’ve had this in the bottle and on tap, but this rating is for a pint pour at Our House Bistro in Plattsburgh, New York. Pours clear amber, minimal off-white head and lacing. Aroma: brown sugar, some nuts. Flavor: pretty much the same Mouthfeel: medium-bodied. It’s OK, drinkable, non-offensive, but really boring. I can’t understand why it’s so popular. 17Beer (352) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 22, 2017
Mild aromas of bread. Pours an orange gold with a thin white head and a lot of lacing. Sweet and sour balance with a light lingering sour finish. Good carbonation. A nice drinkable ale. JBell14 (99) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 21, 2017
Nice amber color with an off white head. Medium body, malty, with a little bitter from the hops on back end

Keg at Switchback, Burlington. Cloudy amber, small head. Fruity bready nose. Mid sweet with medium body and clean mouthfeel. Crystal malt and bread, some hay. Mid bitter finish. bnokk (534) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 20, 2017
lightly orange (in this bar’s light). Odd for an ale. It is plenty turbid, so I believe it’s unfiltered.
NOTES- I’ve already said the most interesting things about this beer.

A very pleasant bitter. Quickly dissipating head. Cloudy appearance because of the sediment. Slightly malty aroma. Nicely balanced flavour. Onslow (1495) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2016
Draft. Copper brew with tan head. Nutty aroma, sweet malt, hints of grass and floral hops. Taste is modest sweet malt, earth and a little grass. brokensail (16444) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 7, 2016
On tap @ Switchback. Cloudy orange beer with a white head. Lightly earthy and floral hops on the nose and tongue. Some sweet caramel, bread, and toasted malts as well. Pretty malt forward beer, in fact. There is a light bitterness, some apple esters, and woody hops. Maybe a little bit on the grassy side. It’s okay. Mark_Eck (1948) - - AUG 27, 2016
Bottle. Pours a hazy copperish color. Aroma and taste are grains and a little hops. Quake1028 (638) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Friend brought me back a couple of bottles from Vermont. Pours a dark amber that is impossible to see light through. Huge head, very sudsy, pillowy head and leaves a really nice amount of lacing on the glass. Very good looking beer. Some malt on the nose, with maybe a faint amount of some hop spiciness. Doesn’t smell as good as it looks, but there is nothing offensive in the aroma, just fairly weak. Watery, slick and oily mouthfeel. Some hop bitterness in the flavor profile, but watery and pretty weak. Maybe I am having a bad day with all of these misses. Not a drainpour, can finish this one, but there is nothing here that is going to make me sad that this is my last bottle of it. Glad I got to try it, but can safely move on from here.
