On tap. Pours rubyish/amber with a light beige head. Aroma of toasted, nutty malts with some butterscotch and floral and lightly citrusy hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2010
Draft at the brewpub. Pours an amber toned body with a thin white head. Malty nutty chewy with some caramel notes. Toasted malt and some light fruit tones. Eh.

cask at the brewpub. Reddish amber in color with a small head. Aroma of dark crystal malt- some molasses. Taste is relatively light bodied, with dark crystal malt, mildly fruity, with a touch of roast and a moderate hop bitterness. Cletus (6353) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Pours amber with a white head. Smells biscuitty with some tangy malty character. taste is earthy with some decent malty backbone. DYCSoccer17 (3706) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 30, 2005
On tap at brewery. 5oz sample. Aroma is a bit citric with some mild roastiness that is somewhat faint. Transparent copper/amber color. I would expect this to be more reddish in color. Metallic, rusty maltiness in the middle with some peppery spiciness in the end and somewhat piney-hoppy in the end as well. Chocolate roasts roll in late after the hops have subsided. The body is thin and lacking. The flavors just don’t jive, which gives this a weird mouthfeel and makes it less than enjoyable.

Sample, on cask. Murky reddish-brown, no head. Sweet, slightly grapey nose. Light and sweet, with a tart apple foundation; tart long finish with some nice smoky bitterness towards the finish. Not a fan of "red" ales generally, this is above average for me.
