Thanks to richbrew for this one. Bottle: Amber brown color with a medium flaky head, lots of carbonation; aroma is quite inviting. Taste is straightforward, light body, clean and crisp.

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

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.

Bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours deep amber. Nose is malty with nuts, toffee. Taste is toffee, nuts, malts, light fruits and citrus. Decent.

AshtonMcCobb (4069) - 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 (2281) - 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.

Twelve ounce bottle from Abita variety 12 pack purchased at Jeff’s Marathon, tasted on April 3, 2015. Amber color with fine clarity, nice malty nose with some sugar notes, sweet malty flavor with some unpleasant chemical character in the backround, taste mellowed as my glass warmed. This beer seemed better on draft when I had it at Abita’s brewpub and in New Orleans back in the 90’s, and The Big Easy and vicinity is probably still the best place to drink it. Come to think of it, most things taste better down there...
