Pours clear ruby amber with a thin beige head. Aroma is plain with alcohol and caramel. Taste is caramel, toasted biscuit, thin body and finishes a little sticky. Dogbrick (14303) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Sample at the Day Before Labor Day party. The beer is a clear amber-copper color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Sticky rings of lacing. Malty aroma with notes of caramel and mild hops. Light body with caramel malt and weak hops flavors. The finish is malty with a short sweet aftertaste. Really nothing positive or negative to say about this beer, it simply exists. bubbleflubber (2244) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2009
On draught at the High Country Beer Fest, it pours amber into the glass, with a small froth cap. Caramel malt aroma with some toast in there. The flavors are malty, with caramel, some biscuity notes, and nods to tannic acid and possibly a touch of copper. I’ve made this sound much bigger than it actually is, as the rest of the brew is lackluster. The finish is of toast and dry-hopping, with a medium body and dull mouthfeel. It’s not a substantive brew on the palate, and after a couple of pulls, loses interest for me. It falls into the vast ocean of mediocrity, which is unfortunate.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear reddish copper color with a thin frothy head. Good head retention. Aroma is caramel,
toasted malts and light toffee. Taste is caramel, leafy hops, light solvent alcohol and light tea. Thin-medium
bodied. Good beer. ScottyP (425) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - AUG 30, 2009
Clear amber pour with off white head. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, floral hops, kind of warm like a whiskey. Similar taste with a nice bitter hop finish.

Bottle shared with the guys at the Inglorious Emergency Tasting. Very nice bright caramel pour with ring of tan head. Nose of sweet and tart caramel with a slight hint of vegetal on the flavor, but perhaps just nutty. Some hint of floral hop for balance. Good malty amber.

Pours a lasting ring of off-white head with a clear, amber body. Caramel and floral aromas. Flavor is burnt sugar, butter, and apple floral. Semi-dry finish. osu97gp (678) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 27, 2009
Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is floral and very sweet. Flavor of grains and some fruit, with a hoppy finish. Was expecting much worse. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 4, 2009

Very nice pour, great sticky head and beautiful ruddy amber color. Dry malt extract and a touch of artificfial sweetner on the nose with grainy bitterness to balance.. Sweet malt palate gives way to a very nice hoppy bitterness. Somewhat floral hop spice lingers in the mouth. 84
