Malty, yeasty bread smells. Pours a pretty orange red brown with a giant dense buff head. Sour rye bread tang with a nioce lingering sour finsh. Slick mouthfeel and balanced all around. Best Thimble Island I’ve tasted so far. I like it. AdamChandler (5052) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 17, 2017
12oz. Pours redddish brown and hazy. Smells like a sweet caramel and pumpkin beer with nrown sugar. Tastes like a sweet bud with more carbonation. This one is not good. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 26, 2016

Supercarbonated, off-white head, frothy lacing, and a light amber body. generic grainy malts, light grainy malts, some vegetal DMS notes in the flavor. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, mild sweetness. madnorwegian (234) - FRANCE - JUN 22, 2016
Decent beer, but a little too malty for my taste. Also can taste the yeast a lot which gives it a bready flavor. Not necessarily something I would drink again.

Pours a nice golden brown on tap with dissipating tan cream head that leaves light lace. Aroma of good caramel malt and nutty qualities, hint of earthiness. Taste follows, bitty and malty, slightly sweet. Meh. MayorOfSudz (74) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 18, 2015
A nice straightforward ale. Well balanced with hops and malt tones. Very drinkable.

Pour is copperish brown with a fizzy tan head. Nose is heavy sticky malt, hop oil, lots of sugar. Flavor is the same, sweet, sticky caramel malts, sugar, oily hop resin, low bitterness, syrupy feel, moderate carb, rough finish. rocbyter (2124) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Fruity apple aroma. Clear orange color with a small white head. Mild sweet beginning with a bitter finish. ben4321 (6514) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2015

Location: Draft at the brewery, 3/28/15
Aroma: The nose is caramel and earth, with some metallic notes.
Appearance: It pours a clear amber color with an off white head.
Flavor: Polio flavor, leans sweet, but with a light bitterness.
Palate: The body is light-medium, easy enough drinkability, lightly dry.
Solid enough approachable amber (not brown) ale. Makes sense as a gateway to craft beer, but not super interesting for a craft offering. (Cleaning up the rating, I have no idea what auto-corrected to "Polio" in my flavor description, but I think I’ll just leave it, it’s too weird to fix.)
