Fatehunter (1754) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. Copper, transparent with half a finger of white head. Smells like honey and lemon zest. A bit of bitterness, though just enough to notice. A touch of sweetness. Crisp and bubbly at first, a little creamy in the latter half, with a lighter body. A well balanced beer that is appealing and easy to drink.

From the bottle the beer pours a caramel color with a nice head. Aroma of nuts, toasted malt and caramel. Taste has some caramel, bread and a mild sweetness to it. Very average beer.

highlandlad (1443) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - SEP 5, 2015
Well-made Munich lager out of Louisiana. Not especially exciting, but I’m surprised it rates as low for the style when it’s so clean and well executed. Nice-looking - colour as advertised, good head retention. Mild, mildly underwhelming aroma of sweet malts. Very clean both in aroma and on the tongue. Low bitterness. Hay, faint caramel, vanilla, bread. Lovely creamy carbonation. Can imagine sinking a few of these on a steamy day on the bayou. (355ml bottle from Carrington Cellars, Leura)

APPEARANCE- Light, lagerish. FLAVOR- very modest flavors. Good for a crazy hot summer day. About it.

ContemplateBeer (1782) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 16, 2015
12 oz. bottle from Liquor Barn (Middletown Commons). Aroma: Lean caramel, brown sugar, light bready spice. Appearance: Pours a rich copper with average carbonation holding up a foamy bone head; the head settles into a patchy skin. Flavor: Malts up front are subtle; a little caramelized bready malt sweetness comes in midway through; the finish has a notable spicy hop character. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Like Abita Bock, it’s a sort of poor man’s take on the style, but it’s also somewhat charming as a result. Would drink again if offered.

AshtonMcCobb (4131) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 25, 2015
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - amber with a nice lacy head. Nose - toffee, light fudge even, but with a fresh fruitiness too. Taste - light toffee with a citrus tang on the finish. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - does the job.

355ml bottle from Appellation Wines, Dalry. Pours clear amber with a short-lived white head. Aromas of toffee and nuts. Taste is more of the same. Clean finish. Not that exciting but well executed.

Bacterial (2352) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Caramel amber pour with a slight white head. Airport bar, so it was a fucking frozen glass, which might be a good thing. Malty nose. A bit of cracker, malty, a tiny bit of earthy hops hidden in there. Tastes like it may have been cold filtered.

I had it from the bottle. It was sweet with a caramel and malt taste. I like an amber to be a little more balanced with hops. This wasn’t bad. It was very ordinary. It makes for an okay session beer and probably pairs well with pub food.

Bottle: amber color with about two fingers of a frothy white head. Aroma was slightly malty. Flavor was sweet, sort of caramel like.
