Had at Friend's & Company in Guilford, CT. Pours amber and there is a lot of caramel and malt sweetness going on. A touch of herbal bitterness in the back-end keeps it all together. Easy to drink but very forgettable.

A very drinkable malty brew but not Hooker's best; compare with their Oktoberfest which is top-shelf.

Very drinkable. Malty, caramel, happiness just right. Had a few, could have easily had a few more!

Reddish-copper in color. Hearty in body and toasty in flavor. The maltiness is the heart of this offering.

This is a good old session beer that can blend well with any food; in the case of this tasting, I paired this beer with some hot wings.
