12oz capped, standard brown bottle. Pours out a slightly cloudy reddish-brown, almost like a dark iced tea. The smell is malty and sweet. A bit on the light side with some chalky notes as well.
Taste is malty and sweet with medium to medium light bitterness overall. Carbonation is on the lighter side with a solid aftertaste. I also pick up some nutty notes and maybe a sweet fruit component. Ending is medium in length.
Overall a solid flavorful beer that is very easy to drink. Maybe due to the low carbonation. This seems like a completely different beer than the same version that I had on tap.

Purchased a growler from the local package store. Poured into a Samuel Adams Pint Glass.
A - Deep amber color with half a finger of white, foamy head. Retains well with fairly nice lacing throughout.
S - Roasted malts and citrus. Not much there though.
T - Sweet malt with a hint of coffee. Kind of a syrup-y taste.
M - Medium body with a dry finish.
Overall, a good brew. Very drinkable and I'll probably purchase again.

the fact that a professor I really respect bought me one at a conference makes this better than it really is. a generic amber, sweet and thick in the English vein, but a bore too. oatmealy in body and texture, sweet and denser than most, filling, big. you could have told me 9% abv and I wouldn't have questioned you, this is a gut rotter, and a weight gainer. I see it as an imposer English red type, but one that still doesn't taste bad, just unremarkable in that made for production way. not to be critical or anything, but this beer is an afterthought. I like the sturdy feel actually, but one is enough, and that's not a desirable trait in a basic amber right?

A draft pint at their Brewmaster's Tavern, with dinner.
a: A deep amber, no head by the time it arrived at my table.
s: Light malt.
t: Malt reminiscent of British pale ales of old. Little hop bite to speak of. Quite similar to Shipyard Chamberlain Ale.
m: Light to moderate, smooth and mellow.
o: A malty treat. I love these, the heavier and more malty/yeasty the better, even in summer, especially with food.
This is Opa Opa's foundation brew, and one I'm going to stick to each time I visit this tavern until colder weather makes their excellent King Oak Milk Stout irresistable again.
Serving type: on-tap
