Reddish brown pour with no head. Aroma is roasted malt some toast and sharp grain. Hop character is largely non-existent in the aroma. Flavor is somewhat sweet with dry roast. Some graininess as well. Palate is watery ending dry and chalky. Not overly impressed. Gabler (87) - , New York, USA - JUL 22, 2009
Bottle. Cloudy brownish pour. It’s body is kind of light for the maltiness that you get. It’s a very drinkable amber, if a little off-balanced. altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - FEB 26, 2009
From Brattleboro Co-op. Caramel body, slight oily head. Malty, sweet and sour nose. Taste is malty, but also quite sweet. Some dough in the finish. Not so sure about this one. BroSpud (2164) - , Massachusetts, USA - FEB 15, 2009
On tap at brewery. This is one of my favorites from a tasting had at the brewery or at least the one I most remember. I have had it in bottles a few times since and it has not seemed as good. Not sure if recipe changed or they just don’t take care of the stuff when it ships. Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JAN 29, 2009
12 oz bottle. Not sure where I picked up this bitty, probably Stateline in MD. The pour is caramel, a little cloudy. Some sour tones in the nose, mostly hidden by the maltiness. Flavor is sweet, slightly sour, and doughy. Somewhat thin bodied, decent carbonation.

12 oz bottle-trade w/jjpm74. Cloudy amber color w/a foamy off white head w/lasted thru the brew. Sweet malt aroma. Light, malty flavored brew w/a touch of sweetness; traces of bread dough & slight fruit overtones. Smooth, easy drinking amber which would be a good sesson brew. Seems underrated to me; I’d love to try this on draft. Thanks John! Beerdedone (3390) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2008
Bottle. Pours a light amber with a small white head. Aroma of light malts, fruit, and notes of tart citrus. Sweet and malty flavor with light floral hops and a touch of caramel. Light bodied with a clean finish. daknole (11044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Not really that good. Brown pour and a very small head. Aroma is pretty malty and not all that bad. But the flavor has some malt mixed with a funky sour finish...it almost tastes skunked. Not my style at all. DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - AUG 20, 2008
Bottle from a trade with StFun. Poured a brown/red color. Smelled a little fruity and the taste was definately a little sour. I was very surprised, I was expecting just another typical amber.
