Big bubbly off-white head. More dirty brown in color with red highlights toward the light. Nose of grain. Taste is hops upfront, grain in the end. Light cotton mouth dry finish. Good during dinner. Overall not bad, I wouldn’t drink again.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - MAY 17, 2004
Dark copper-red in color with a sparse off-white head. Malty with just a hint of hops. Very drinkable; a good "session" beer.

freekyp (1483) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - FEB 23, 2004
Deep chestnut red with slight off white head. A bit of caramel malts in the nose and nice malty/toasty finish make this a decent, but not outstanding brew.

brystmar (1238) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Thanks Daniel!

Gorgeous color, head, lace. Hoppy nose seeps onto the palate alongside red malts and steeped tea. A little more mild on the palate than I'd like; bring me more flavor and we'll talk. Interesting, though, and glad I got to try it.
