This one poured a clear yellow golden body with short head. The aroma was very buttery and a little doughy, taste wasn’t much better.

Boliv (1148) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2011
Bottle. Pours pale orange and gold with a small foamy white head. Aromas of caramel, apple skin, and grass. Weak grassy hops, plastic, and stale malt. Not good. [798]

NJJereme (375) - Saint Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Bottle. Pours a light copper color w/ a white head that fades pretty quickly. Didn’t find it to be overly hoppy. Drinks more like a lager. Light to medium bodied. Some notes of carmel. Some bitterness and carbonation. Not great but not bad.

LinusStick (2843) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Blah. What a crappy beer. Aroma was near nothing. Slight graininess with a hint of ginger ale. Pour was a nice enough light hazy gold with lots of rising bubbles and a thin white ring for a head. Taste was very bland and watery with not much going on. Carbonation drowns out what little flavor this beer had. A slight earthy hoppy aftertaste is all that is there and it’s faint.

Has a thin bready aroma. Pours a crisp golden yellow with a thin head. Has a fruity sourness to the taste and the carbonation is lively.Has an OK character overall though nothing super. I’d have no problem drinking it again.

It tastes like a buttery sandwich or something. Sweet and malty, nottoo much flavor.

warmsilence (25) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 11, 2011
From the bottle. The smell is sour and vaguely antiseptic. Taste is metallic and thin tasting with not too much spiciness or flavor. I’d avoid this one in the future.

anders37 (16595) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2011
Bottle. Pours a golden color with a small white head. Has a fruity malty grainy aroma. Fruity malty grainy flavor with weak hoppy hints. Has a sweetish malty grainy finish.

crazyvin (1934) - New York, USA - AUG 6, 2011
A clear light copper body with a fast fading white head. Aroma had a good caramel malt note, some biscuit and slight hop profile. Aroma also had some astringent notes, somewhat medicinal. Flavor had good malt notes but the more astringent notes seemed to overpower the hop notes. Body was thin and week. Not a bad beer but in no way a good beer.

Ibrew2or3 (6854) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2011
12oz bottle pours clear copper / gold with white head. The aroma offers up a mix of spicy hops and earthy hops with a bit of roasted malts and sweet malts in the background. The taste is similar with spicy and floral hops backed up by some earthy hops, a bit of roasted malts and malt sweetened floral hops into the finish.
