The last of the Wachusett beers to try... It has a nice red color with some carbonation and a sweet malted smell. Taste is smooth, malty and finishes with a touch of alcohol. Overall this is the best from Wachusett hands down. TheGent (656) - , Massachusetts, USA - JAN 9, 2010
nice amber/ orange colored ale with fast fading head. Aroma was caramel and vanilla. The taste took some effort to get but was some grassiness and pine. Almost reminded me of the smell of air in the fall with all the dieing leaves. Smooth texture UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 5, 2003
Decent, but an odd yeasty nuttiness kind of ruins the overall impression for me. Good solid maltiness, not much in the way of hops, and the aforementioned strange bready nuttiness. Bits of cherry and caramel taste. Overall an average winter offering, I think. stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2008
Dark, not quite black pour... Nose strong of caramel and alcohol. Taste is of the same. Too much of an alcohol taste for my liking, but not terrible. ukoolaid (580) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 14, 2005
On tap. Orangish copper with a little head. Aroma is sweet malt. Taste is medium sweet with a bit of fruit and a little hop. Not bad.

12 oz bottle courtesy of cousin, thanks Marshall!! Pours a ruby hued amber colour with a small tan head that disapates quickly to a slight ring on the glass. Nose of sweet malts, toasted malts, red fruits are also lingering in the background, cherry being the most distinguishable. Initial taste is loaded with toasted malts and sweet malts trying to make there way in. Mid palate of mild red fruits. Finishing with a touch bitter hops and mild earthiness & spices. Palate duration is short. Medium body. Not bad but nothing outstanding either. doublebock (558) - California, USA - MAR 4, 2007
Rather flat, chocolate scent, amber color
tast: notes of almond finished by orange peel, missing a significant hops component sailracer (486) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle. Malty toasted flavor with a sort of odd aftertaste that I couldn’t place. Ok but not great Brewbie (479) - New York, USA - MAR 4, 2007
Bottle. Hard pour, small head which quickly receeded. Nice amber color. Bit of sweetness in the taste. Little bitterness in the finish. Not a bad beer, just doesn’t stand out for me. 6ROW (473) - corpus christi, Texas, USA - FEB 4, 2009
