burg326 (3840) - Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2011
12 ounce bottle that pours a light orange/amber color with aromas of resin, caramel, and earthy aromas. Flavor follows suit, an ok sipper for the Florida heat.

Elwood (3332) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from True Vine. It pours pours a light amber orange with a small, foamy, white head. The nose has light malt and toast notes. The flavor is pretty one dimensional with some flabby toast and very light, stale hop notes. Thin body with some lingering malt on the palate. A very middle of the road amber ale.

nearbeer (3812) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 28, 2011
12 oz. Clear, pale copper with a lasting ring of foam. Nose is grain, sourish caramel apple, light resin. Flavor is mostly caramel and apple, with light citrus and toasted pecan on the finish. Light-medium body is sweetish, a little hop-tingly, and lightly carbonated. This isn’t half-bad, as an American take on an English Bitter.

PhillyBeer2112 (2534) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2011
I kinda thought this would be terrible but it wasn’t! Popped the crown with a loud pop, poured almost as a gusher, with a huge foaming head, thick meringue like texture sticking out of the glass and holding its shape. Took forever to pour. Clean caramel bready malts, light grassy hops. Clean overall approach, fairly done although heavy on the carbonation.

obguthr (4004) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 10, 2011
Draft served as Red Brick Laughing Skull: Weak cherry nose. Clear amber, medium yellow head. Weak malt flavor, nothing fruity. Thin, watery mouthfeel. Alcohol slightly noticeable, which isn’t surprising since there is little to hide it. Weak.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 10, 2011
Draught. Pours mahogany with a white head. Smells of light caramel, some earthy hints. Tastes rosey and watery with a thin, caramel finish.

tennessejed420 (927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 22, 2011
draft. Pours a dark, brownish read with creamy, almost nitrogen like tan head. Medium bodied, low in carbonation, almost drinks like a bitter. Aroma is earthy with caramel, flavor is the same, notes of soil, toast, nuts, and caramel. Overall not too shabby.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 20, 2011
Draft. Poured light amber with a smallish white head. Aroma and flavor were mild, some bready malt, some citrusy, grassy hops. LIttle bit o’ honey, perhaps. Nice and drinkable.
