Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. 02/13/09.
Pours a clear golden orange color with about two fingers of soft beige head. The head quickly dropped to a thin layer and left some decent lacing. Aroma is faint with caramel malt and buttery biscuit.
Taste is very malty up front with caramel, toffee, and biscuit flavors. The finish is subtle herbal hops. Slight buttery and honey as well. Fairly simple, yet enjoyable. Feel is medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. Drinkability is pretty good - almost sessionable.

Pale amber with thin white head.
Caramel nose with hints of pine and lemon.
Toffee apple up front with some toasty granola, then light passionfruit, pine, and resin.
Vague pine cone (earthy, woody) finish and grapefruit rind linger.
Light, slight cling, round.
Too thin, with malt over hops, which don't do Simcoe justice. Drinks like Sam Adams, which is not a compliment. Amber for Dummies.

Clear amber with a dense off white head with decent retention and lacing. The nose is a blend of caramel, cascade hops, toast, brown sugar, citrus and toffee. The palate opens moderately toasty and caramel like, but exceedingly thin and watery. Hop character is mild, with a faint bitterness, mild flavor and a touch of mineral. A touch of honey is present. The finish is dry and lacks flavor. Rather mediocre IMO.
