Cask sample at the Princeton location: Pours reddish-amber with a dense off-white head that burns off to a thin layer. Minimal lacing. The aroma is subtle malt and hops. Medium, soft body with earthy malt and muted hops flavors. The finish is round and sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Not very impressive overall. hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - SEP 19, 2007
on nitro @ New Hope. Deep amber in color. Creamy lasting light tan head. Aroma is a bit muted, but caramel and light notes of chocolate. Taste is malty with caramel, with some caramelized dark crystal or something along those lines. Creamy mouthfeel from the nitro, but as usual it hinders it’s flavor and aroma profile. wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 13, 2006
Hand pump in Princeton. Poured red with a thick and foamy off white head. Foam took a while to die down. Aromas of grain, citrus and caramel. Dry tase with caramel notes. There was also a breadiness. Weak and watery palate with some sweet malts.

Hand pump- Pours with a nice off white head. Aroma threw me off a bit, some sulphur notes that I didnt enjoy, but past that had some nice flavors mingling. Begins with a wet breadiness. Medium mouthfeel, mild maltiness comes through initially, finishes a bit bitter. willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - APR 9, 2005
04.09.05 Hand pump at Princeton location. There was no description in the menu (as usual) or on the upstairs board.
First of all, I was really hoping for the maibock today, or the IPX, but I was apparently in between the two and, at first, felt like I was getting stuck with this fill-in. Copper pour with thick biege head. Sheeting lace. Aroma is earthy and peat soaked with morning bakery smells and ...somthing sort of lager-ish about it. Flavor is very dry with big earth notes. Coating body though that vanishes on the finish leaving a bitter ghost haunting my palate. Lots of malts highlighted by dull white pepper. Pleasant and mild, this one laughs at mass produced swill Irish ales as it truly asserts itself with peat and bitterness.
