Malty, nutty aroma with a little skunk. Flavor is malty and nutty and unfortunately slightly skunked, with some bittering hops in the finish. Decent but pretty standard red ale. JulienHuxley (5950) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 9, 2013
Bottle. Clear amber pour with thin white head. Aroma is malty, quite a bit of caramel, light oxidation notes, peppery hops. Taste is sweet, malty/caramel with a decent bitter finish. Pretty typical american amber. Decent. ROGUE (2216) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - OCT 1, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a deep clear amber color with a thin light tan head. Aroma is vaguely roasty, sweet, somewhat nutty and bready. Flavor is much the same, with a nice pale malt sweetness, touched with a bit of roasty bittersweetness and breadiness. Body is a little thin, with moderate carbonation.

Beer of the month club. Pours a pretty red color with small quickly receding head. Sweet fruit aroma with lits of malt and a bit of a buttery tone. Flavor is malty sweet up front, followed by buttery floral taste, and ends with some bitter. A little metallic flavor takes away from things. Easy drinking with plenty of carbonation. Ok beer, but nothing I would seek out. VALIS (235) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Slightly sweet grain/corn scent, clear copper color. Taste is neutral, a bit crisp and gassy, slight bit of sweetness, spice, malt. Not bad, just plain.

Slight cranbury. / yellowish Orange. /just like the Pemi pale ale...ash or char, with creamyness. Maybe it’s pine. / a bit flat. /another slightly below average beer from beer of the month. JuliusCaesar (162) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Average all around. Mild aroma and flavors. Good beer but nothing to special. johnnnniee (4411) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Pours a clear golden garnet color with a huge fluffy off white head that slowly dissipates and laces on the way down. Smells of caramel, mineral, and a bit of earth and spice with a hint of butter. the flavor is quite malty with caramel being the dominant taste. Earth, tart, and butter provide a bit of counter to the malty sweetness, but this one really leans to the malty side. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. A buttery malt bomb how shipyard-ish. OK for what it is, but there are better red ales out there. Leighton (22306) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle on the road to Hill Farmstead, consumed somewhere in MA. Pours clear amber, lightly effervescent with a moderate, off-white foam head. Lots of toasty, sugary malts in the nose, some caramel. Medium sweet flavor, more caramel ntoes, some orange, bread, very low bitterness. Light to medium bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Sugary malt finish, creamy caramel, toast, very light pine. Pretty basic stuff.
