3.18/5  rDev -13.6%

A - Poured a vibrant, fairly clear amber with some rising bubbles. Little to no head in my glass and very little lacing as well.

S - Faint caramel malts, vague fruitiness, and some underlying floral hops. Nice combo, but could have been a bit stronger.

T - Sweetness from the caramel malt is noticeable but quick before slightly spicy slightly fruity hoppiness takes over and plays through to the mildly bitter end.

MF - Smooth, well-matched carbonation, barely medium-bodied. Decent finish.

O - An average amber. Would benefit from a stronger malt character for balance.

On tap at the source,
Pours a hazy deep amber bordering on brown with a smallish off white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aromas of caramel and toffee maltiness with a solid hit of earthy spicy hops to counter. The flavor is sweet with brown sugar caramel and toffee offset with an earthy resinous hop flavor.
Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Really nice amber/brown ale with a great rich maltiness and a really solid hop presence.

Formerly the Back in Business Amber, but re-formulated and tweaked by Greg, hence a new name.... Dunstable was the old name of Nashua when first settled a few hundred years ago.

Pours a deep, rich chestnut hue, mostly clear within yet still resistant to light passing through. Topped by a thin, fine and creamy tan head, it leaves top-shelf lacing behind in the glass. Nose is on the light side, yet still shows some toasty malt characteristics with a mild, floral hoppiness. Body was a middle of the road medium, and was light on carbo, passing fairly smoothly over the tongue.

Old D tasted fine, with some light caramel sweetness initially hitting the palate. Formed a decent base upon which some solid layers of hops were heaped. It was quite floral overall, with yummy fruity notes as well. (I later learned that Greg paired Saaz and Simcoe in this). The lupulins stick well in the mouth and are quite long-lasting. Hit the spot nicely...
