Thin and unremarkable.
Sorry, I had to upload these old ratings. They were for me, not for uploading. And also I need 75 characters, hence this sentence.

APPEARANCE - nice blonde color with a touch of copper and slight cloudiness.
NOSE - not much in the way of scent.
FLAVOR - very light bitter flavor. This could pass as an English mild in my opinion. shigadeyo (3856) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2015
Ugh, diacatyl (buttery) toffee malt aroma. Hazy, pale copper color with a dense white crown. Flavor is watery and minerally, grainy toffee malt, moderate English hop bitterness, ashy finish. Medium light finish, thin mouth feel. Not very good, but not completely undrinkable. jsquire (4722) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2015
Golden beer with a sticky off white head. Grainy nose with some citrus hops and yeast notes. Sweet malty beer with a little spice, berry, and a present but not too aggressive hop resin. Easy drinking bitter. Tmoney99 (15219) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2015
Tap. Poured hazy golden pour with an average frothy white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Moderate balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Drinkable session beer.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy gold color with a small white head that settles into a ring, while a film only settles on one half of the surface. The aroma is just a bit too sweet for me; biscuit, cookie, cream, sugar, and cereal. Flavor of sweet malts, grass, straw, cereal, and faint spice (which seems to be a bit of a house character that I like). Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, sweet, faintly spicy mouthfeel. I’ve noticed a lot of American attempts at these mellow English bitters end up a little too sweet; this is one. rondphoto (4540) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAR 10, 2015
on tap @ Tap & Screw / Cincinnati OH --- Cloudy dirty golden amber color, good white head, broken curtain of lace. Taste is malt accompanied by mild hops that adds butter rum on the swallow while still retaining enough bitter to keep things in check. Not memorable, but it drinks well enough.

Pint on tap at the brewpub. Mostly hazy orange amber color. Thin white head. Leaves great, thicker lace. Now this one is nice... Awesome tangerine and orange citrus hop up front, brazen for a bitter, indeed. Very mild caramel malt -- this is very hop-forward, overall. Some biscuity malt in the finish (very mild though). Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp light to moderate carbonation, sort of soft, with a good full feel. Light slickness. Nice moderate-plus bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Very tasty, hoppy and balanced. Bitter? Drinks more like a session IPA to me. Looking at the reviews from the other guys, I’m thinking this must be a different (and way different) batch. I was wondering for a moment if this might actually be the Dr Kool IPA.. Another staff member offered me a sample of both again (usually they wont do that for free, thx to them for humoring me)... Honestly they tasted super-similar, like the difference between coke and pepsi. But it wasn’t a mispour. I dunno. In any case, regardless if this was a hoppier batch, or a mislabeled keg... I liked what I drank. Will re-rate if I stumble upon this again in the future, and if it’s tasting way different. alexsdad06 (11392) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Draft at Tap and Screw. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, light peppery spice, light fruit, grass, mild sweetness, mild plus bitterness. drsordr (2973) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Draft pour at brew pub pour hazy avg gold. Nose minimal malt, slight metallic, hint of vegetal. Taste moderate bitter up front, then some toffee malt. Fairly watered down flavors.
