1.6/5 rDev -54.4%
This is by far THE worst beer I've ever had. I is bitter and skunky. It will ruin what ever you drink it with, and don't even think about drinking it by itself. You need something to help cover up the skunkiness! Their regular white label beer is ok, but this is horrendous! A total waste of money!

Twelve oz single from Harvest Fine Wine in West Hartford CT for $1.58, best by Dec. Cold in a chilled pint glass.
Foggy copper brew with an inch of eggshell foam that condenses slowly. Smells semi-sweet with some diacetyl; hops are present but detected only by the dry feel to the smell rather than by aroma. Taste leads with a good hoppy bite of grapefruit rind contaminated by diacetyl. The feel is mostly dry with zesty carbonation and moderate alcohol burn. Finishes with lingering hop/diacetyl chimera and a little candy sweetness that comes out after the carbo is gone, kinda like lightly buttered lemon Pez.

A-Pours an almost transparent,rusty amber with a quickly dissipating 1 1/2 inch cap that reduced down to a thin ring and left weak,spotty lacing on the glass.
S-Brown bread,tired hops,some toffee,stale citrus and brown sugar.
T-This beer comes across more English than American.There is a tinny,minerally quality to it with the flavors of stale bread,caramel,some slight citric hops and a tannic,wet tea leaf finish.
M-Light to medium bodied with decent carbonation but no real standout flavors for it to push forth. Slight hop bitterness was mild and fleeting.
O-Average.That pretty much sums it up.At it's best,this beer is average.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into my New Belgian tulip. Received this as part of my Beer of the Month club December box.
a - Pours a somewhat clear amber color with one inch of frothy off white head and light carbonation evident. Head leaves some lacing on the glass.
s - Smells of bready malts, fruity malts, caramel malts, and very light citrus hops. Very malty, and not a lot of hops. Not that great.
t - Tastes of bready malts, caramel malts, and light fruity malts. Again, not a lot hops here, and below average.
m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty smooth here.
d - I thought the smell and taste had very little hops and just a lot of bready malts; I found both below average. It did have a very nice mouthfeel though. Wouldn't seek out again.

2.95/5 rDev -16%
Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with three full fingers of head; both the stickage and lace are impressive
Smell: Crusty bread, earthy hop and undertones of caramel
Taste: After a bit of toast and caramel, a very unusual mineral/herbal, diacetyl-laden tobacco character sweeps across the tastebuds; by mid-palate the caramel returns to add some sweetness; after the swallow, finish is dominated by the mineral/herbal character with a fruity/bitter edge
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: Can't say that I care for this one very much at all; more English than American but not a very impressive example, at that
