Had this at the buttonwood last night. It replaced thier dopplebock which as of 10/26 they were still serving so the class five should be fairly fresh. And this was a new brewey to me I was looking forward to trying it out.
This beer came to me with a nice looking amber color and a dense 1/2 inch head.
Ididn't notice the carbonation. the aroma was light and leaned toward sweet malts. I couls pick up traces of citrus hops.
It tasted pretty good considering my environment with a more pronounced malt taste. This beer seems to be more towards the tradional as apposed to a west coast IPA.
Drinks smooth and clean and not really all that bitter,
Very drinkable and quite flavorfull.
The buttonwood is in a touristy area of Bucks co with probably no requlars to help roatate the taps so you get what you get.

Pours a deep copper color with little to no head. Smells of sweet hard candies, toffee, bready and hops. Flavor is lacking a bit, and was disappointing after the nice aroma. This one is mostly bready malts with a hint of grapefruit from the hops. This could benefit from a little more conplexity, maybe some more fresh hops. Flavor falls a bit flat, with a slick mouthfeel and medium low carbonation.

Pours the color of weak iced tea. A finger wide, light tan head sits on top. Really good retention. Amazing amount of lace.
Smell is flowery hops, resin, faint malt and grapes.
Taste is hoppy, very faint malt and nought else to be found.
Nearly full bodied, effervescence is bold up front but fades soon enough. Finish is dry and quite clean, leaving just some herbal notes to remind you of what you drank.
