bhensonb (11095) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 18, 2011
Bottle from Total Wine in Roseville, CA. Pours amber/gold with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is bready with a little fruity hop. Near med body. Bready like a premium lager with some citrus/fruit hop. Not spicy to me. It is just moderately bitter. Could be a lawnmower beer. If used as session beer it better be a short session.

Leighton (11034) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2012
Bottle at Sander’s place in NYC. Pours clear gold with a small, white foam head. Lightly toasted malts in the nose, mild caramel and straw. Medium sweet flavor, sweet bread, grains. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet, slightly syrupy finish, faint leaves and grain, some toasted sugar. It’s nothing special, though slightly better than the Nova Scotia Brown Ale.

hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Draft… Clear golden ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The nose is mashy and malty – pale malts – with a clear lack of any substantial hop aspect. Medium-bodied with stinging carbonation. The flavor is bland and boring, but well-balanced and quite drinkable. Definitely more of a malty influence than any real hop character here as well. Finishes crisp and a bit grainy.

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

Ibrew2or3 (6910) - 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.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle @ Minneapolis Beer Fest. Light yellow pour with a small white head. Some citrus on nose and taste, plus a little biscuit. Not awful, not great, just okay.

4/26/11. 12oz bottle. Clear orange pour with a big fluffy off-white head that cuts quickly but laces a bit. Plain musty aroma with a hint of citrus. Sweet malty flavor with a hint of citrus and pine. Very straightforward. Meh.

Braudog (5748) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Bottle, this brewed in St Louis. Poured with a pedestrian appeal, light amber, just a thin head. It drinks with a odd perfume-laden scent, sweet and musty. Although it’s odd up front, perhaps it’s because I expected less -- it actually grows on me as I go. Not bad. (#4359, 11/20/2011)
