Cybercat (4270) - Georgia, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Pours clear yellow with a fairly tick and fine-bubbled eggshell head. Fruity aroma has a malty hint, and is not strong but still invites a taste. Flavor has little more gumption, fruity and malty with a pinch of hops. Mouthfeel features average body and fizz, while finish is fruity and surprisingly hoppy. Don’t sit on the fence post, enjoy it.

Luvystypotables (1228) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Aroma is musty like old socks, with hints of wet hay. Pours a hazy gold color with a short lasting white head with some lacing. Tastes flat with a pleasant nutty taste, medium body with a chalky finish.

Slightly hazy golden pour with a white head. The aroma seems a little off with notes of straw and cardboard. It has a light body with lively carbonation. The taste mildly bitter with a dry finish.

Patrickctenchi (5204) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 29, 2015
Bottle: Slightly cloudy, dark yellow, with a minimal white head. Aroma is light.....honey and lemon. Taste is the same, sweet.....with a nice carbonation, barley malt notes and a subtle lemon/grassy bitter and spice. Tasty....almost made me think I was drinking a kolsch.

shrubber85 (9452) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle. Lemon peel and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with giant white fluffy head and moderate effervescence. Lightly sweet lemon malt and mildly bitter lemon peel/straw flavor. Pleasant.

DrSilverworm (9083) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2015
12oz bottle, purchased on 2/23/15 from Habersham in Savannah. Bottled 8/25/14. Mostly clear golden orange color, made mildly hazy with particles in the body. Off-white head, leaving good, thicker sheets of lace. Doesn’t look like an amber ale... Should maybe be changed to a session IPA? Grassy, herbal, lightly spicy, mild bready malt, some citrus just a mild hint of brett I think, touch of oxidization in the nose (not too bothersome). Despite tasting a bit off, it’s still a bright, refreshing session ale. Moderate bitter taste, kind of dry finish, lighter sweet. Lighter to medium body. Smooth, kind of soft moderate strength carbonation. A decent one to wash my sandwich down with. Significantly better fresh, I’m sure.

lladnar (4) - Owens Cross Roads, Alabama, USA - JAN 27, 2015 does not count
Very clear golden amber with a small head. I’m picking up some citrus maybe orange or apricot - some malt. A tiny bit of sweetness with some bitter on the backend. Not overly complex but sometimes that’s just what I’m looking for. Pretty good beer. I may pick up a six pack for the Super Bowl.

AleFart (13) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 17, 2015
6 pack in bottles. Picked it up because I liked the name. Not a bad little beer. Cloudy amber pour. Little lacing. Head goes away pretty quick. Almost a beginners Pale. Not that complex. I'll finish the six pack and will buy again. Like to find it on tap. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
