FROTHINGSLOSH (4763) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Sampled from a 22 oz can this beer poured a nut brown color with a huge foamy light brown head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma an enticing blend of sweet malts, sour caramel, nut and faint cocoa with a faint vegetal undertone. The flavor was bitter and tart with faint dark fruits, sour caramel and a mild vegetal presence. Medium finish. Medium body. Solid.

Dorwart (2356) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Decent sized offwhite head of fine bubbles. Dark copper brown in color. Dusty and smokey aroma with some roasted grains and light malts. Dry and a little astringent flavor. More roasted grains and a some soft biscuity malts that linger for a bit. Light bit of sourness that sticks around for a while. An ok brew but not one that I would seek out again.

obguthr (3636) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 22, 2011
Aroma of dried leaves. Crystal clear red copper, thin head. Astringent, dried leaves, sweet malt, cherries and twigs toward the end. Basic red ale, but well done. I love the bottle shaped can packaging.

GT2 (8161) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 18, 2011
651mL can thanks to ryan. The pour is a clear, tea amber to near red with a thinning, yellow head. Aroma is sweet cherry, crystal malt, boxed wine, grenadine, heavy cherry syrup. Taste is toast, bread, sweet strawberry candies, sugar, light roastiness. Palate is sugary, thin. A perfect example of crystal malt explosion. Inoffensive. Very nice for $3 a bomber.

22oz can shared by ryan: Pours a clear deep copper amber with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet toasted caramel malty nose with some light floral fruity notes. Starts with a fizzy carbonation and sweet caramel maltiness with some earthy bittering hops before a slightly more astringent, drier finish. Could use a cleaner hop profile and a little more residual sweetness.
