I really like this beer. Served in a curvy pint-glass, it showed a nice translucent copper color. The smell hinted at slight lemon and nice hops. The mouthfeel was good, but the taste... very nice. For someone who fancies himself an ale man, I really bought into this. Woodsy, lemon, and a bright hop finish that dissapated just before it got too bitter. A great beer to enjoy with a meal and a nice part of Brewster's menu.

Arrives on the bar in the standard Brewsters full pint glass, and appears a clear dark amber colour, with a bit of soapy white head. It smells of sweet caramel malt, and floral hops. The taste is sweet bready malt, a little of that Brewsters yeastiness, and floral, grassy hops, but not really all that bitter. The carbonation is moderate, the body fairly solid, and the finish off-dry, with more of that caramel malt lingering. Not too shabby, I could have a few more of these.

It poured with a creamy tan clingy head over a coppery gold and very clear beer. A nice toasty nose with hints of aromatic hops. Big grainy malty flavour with a mild but balanced bitter bite. Medium light body and low carbonation. It's a good bitter, and a nice style of beer for a brewery that I believe has a tendency to be a little too conservative.
