Poured from the tap at the Blue & Gray Pub in Gettysburg, PA into a pint glass. This beer is a light copper color with a small tan head. The aroma is big on hops and citrus with a hint of pine. The flavor is full of hops and has that citrus finish. The brew is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A great ale.

Darwenus (980) - Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2016 Pours amber in color, faint head. The aroma is rich, brown sugar notes, some citrus. The flavor adds apples, coriander, and a faint, grassy burn from the hops. Amended review: I had this again eight months after my first review, and I liked it a lot more than I did originally. I picked up on some mild whiskey notes this time, and some spice. It’s delicious. I’ve re-rated it from a 3.2 to a 3.8.

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours amber with a tan head and lacing. The aroma is pine and dried fruit. The taste is strong on hops and dried fruit with some biscuit and malt. There’s nice carbonation balanced with some smoothness. This is one of the best ambers I’ve had.

Petty good for an Amber ale. Lot’s of floral hop aroma. Flavor is not bad, though a bit mild for my usual taste preferences. Finish is bitter, but overall it’s a fairly well balanced ale.
