GT (9982) - Oceanside, 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.

DocLock (9866) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2011
22 oz. Aluminum bottle from State Line. Pours deep ruby with 2-finger off-white head; looks nice. Nose is corn flakey, brown sugary, earthy, with notes of red vinous fruit. Tastes of big corn flakey malt, some nuts, toffee, and vinous fruit. Low carbonation and not very complex. BVut a good start.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 16, 2010
Aluminum can. Poured hazy medium amber with a short, uniform cap of tan head. The aroma picked up toasted caramel and nutty notes with an odd sour fruit skin component laced throughout.. touches of iced tea and brown sugar too..seemed off. The flavor found similar components, up to and including the odd vinegary fruit sourness.. more nutty on the finish.. came across a little better than the nose. Lighter-bodied and a touch chalky on the palate.. the sourness was again odd.. not sure if this came across as intended.

radagast83 (7141) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2010
651ml bottle. Poured a clear ruby red color with a medium, foamy white head - no lacing. Aroma is a slightly roasted malt body with caramels, touch of hops, though only just there. Flavor is malty, with brown sugar notes, nutty character, touch of yeast in the finish along with caramel and just a touch of chocolate buried somewhere in there.
