Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2009
Golden amber-brown. Toasty, caramelly nose. Lots of rich earthy caramel character. Nicely made - rich and chewy for the style.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Clear amber, with small tan head. Diacetyl aroma is off-putting but there is some nuttiness beneath. Soft carbonation. Major butter bomb and way too sweet too. Nutty, and has either seen better days or is not living up to its potential.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Rich toasted malts in the nose and in the flavor. A hint of caramel, and some sweet honey nuttiness. On the border of being medium bodied, light and crisp on the palate. Really easy to drink.

nearbeer (3849) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2008 Draft. Clear amber with a creamy head that has good retention. Dried, toasted nut and yeast aroma. Flavor is slightly sweet toasted nut that has those unique British dry, earthy hop and yeast flavors that increase slightly in the middle and finish. Light-medium body and dry palate.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 21, 2007
Growler courtesy of kp sampled on 1/4/07: Pours a slightly hazy copper red with a thin, wispy white head. Aroma of lightly sweet, toasty crystal malts and a mild citrusy hoppiness. Body starts with a lightly sweet toasty, earthy maltiness toward a blander bittersweet finish. An average red ale.

Growler. Poured a hazy dark orange copper color with a small off-white head. The aroma was mildly hoppy with notes of oranges and some citrus with a sweet candy malt underneath. Malty cereal flavor with some citrus and sweet fruit. There was a hint of tartness on the finish.

Tap. Caramel/toffee malt and light hops aroma. Reddish amber color with moderate head - very pretty. Creamy caramel malt flavor with a mild hops finish. Very good.
