On tap. Mild buttery notes, a bit of apple with caramel, not very sweet. Fruity with a little hops. Dull amber clear with foamy off-white lacing head. Light bodied with medium-soft carbonation. Dull red ale, not a lot of maltiness or hoppiness, not overly refreshing or crisp. Very average offering and not one I’d have again. Mild cardboard in the aftertaste.

I went into drinking this beer not expecting much. I read that it was exceptionally poor but it was not. The aroma reminded me of a Belgian, but I don’t think the brewer was going for that outcome. The body was a dark and cloudy dirty amber. Rich and full but didn’t appear to be all quality ingredient based. The beer came across as unique. The head held up while the beer stayed cold. There is definitely something funky going on with this beer. 2beerguys (299) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 14, 2007
Reddish-amber color, hazy, active body, frothy light brown head. Mostly lasting head, fair lacing. Light bread malts, banana, and alcohol. Initial taste is light sweet, moving to a light bitter finish with short duration. Body is light, with a chalky texture, and active carbonation. After the carbonation subsides, the taste disappears with it.

(Bottle) Pours a cloudy amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt and light citrus. Flavor of caramel, nuts, and mild hops. Makes an easy drinker. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2006
Bottled. A hazy reddy amber coloured beer with a nice off-white head. The aroma is nutty and a little toasty. Fruity flavours with more toasty bready malts. Reasonably sweet. Not much hop evident, but drinkable, if a little unexciting.

Bottle from jjpm74. Thanks! Nose of caramelly malts and faint citrus. Semi-hazy amber with a small beige head. Flavor of caramel malts with a tartness added. JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2006
Tap. Light amber, off-white head. Aroma is fruity and caramelly. Strong sweet toffeeish malt aroma. Falvour is decent but way too sweet. Caramel and overdone crystal malt. Some sweet estery fruitiness. Low bitterness. Meh... way too sugary. hopdog (12510) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2006
12oz bottle acquired in trade with jjpm74 (thanks!). Poured a dark and cloudy redi/amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, light caramel, and I’m getting faint banana. Tastes of citrus, nuts, and toasted malts. Tastes were like the body, on the thin and watery side. LadySusan (766) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - APR 13, 2006
It was a very goor find in Vermont. My first taste was enough to make me like this beer. It has a fruity taste it a rich dark amber color. BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - FEB 21, 2006
Bottle courtesy of jjpm74. Thanks John! Poured a dark amber with a thick tan head that mostly lasted. Aroma of molasses, dark fruits, clove, and some hoppy citrus. Sweet flavor of dark fruits and a hint of chocolate in the background. Medium body with very lively carbonation. The carbonation was so strong in this bottle that it took away from the flavor.
