Medium red gold in color. Only a medium malt flavor, and in my opinion, way to hoppy for a strong ale (at least I perceive a Strong Ale should be sweet and malty, with a more mild hop profile). If you removed the Strong Ale categorization from this beer, it would be an average American Pale Ale with some darker malts added for color.

I almost hate to put such a fantastically descriptive rating down but here goes: good, complex, malt-accented strong ale. Helpful, ain’t it? Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2002
A decent strong ale, done the way I like it. Malty, but not overdone. (I’m so exited I am the second person to rate this right behind Oakes!)
