On-tap at a friend's wedding. Tasted 10 September 2011, reviewed from notes.
Pours a medium coppery amber, with a big fluffy cream-colored head. Great retention and good lacing. Unfortunately, the appearance is the highlight of the beer.
Smells rather bland. A bit of malt fulness, some grassy hops, but not a whole lot there. And what is present isn't impressive.
Flavor is balanced, with some sweet caramel malts and dull grassy hop flavors. Rather bland and uninspiring.
Mouthfeel is weak. Medium-bodied with low carbonation. Watery finish. Flat and blah.
This beer is blah all around. I can't find anything to hate about it, but I can't find much to like about it either. It's balanced in the way that tepid water is - not offensive but not really enjoyable either.
Serving type: 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
