BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 24, 2005
On tap only at the Back Road open house:

Ruby hued with a small off-white head and some lace. Carmel and toffee tones on the nose with additional aromatics and floral esters, some pipe tobacco and lots of fruits. The taste starts with a major caramel apple overtone followed by a grassy and herbal hops of British note (found out it was Goldings from Chuck after the fact). The feel is quite refreshing really with a nice bite on top of a silky smoothness. This is a very quaffable beer even if it does come across not completely true to style. I would like to see this offered more often.

12oz bottle, courtesy of BBB63. Thanks, Mike! Pours a hazy, yellowish-amber color; thin off-white head. Relaxed candy sugar, floral notes, and dried fruit in the aroma. Medium, chewy mouthfeel: nice caramel and cinnamon and dried fruit presence upfront; slight viscosity, mild carbonation; very soft and sweet in the mouth. Medium, candy and brown sugar finish; slightly dry.

Nutty brown with some whispy tan head. The nose is dry malty with some nutty character. Pretty much the same with the flavor. Just kind of a nice approachable malt forward ale.

Scotch color with a filmy head. Easy malt aroma with some sweetness and alcohol pinging the nostrils. Honey malt, perhaps some caramel, and scotchy flavors. Overall, a bit too sweet for my palate, but not bad by any means.

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Bottle from I think BBB63. Pour is medium copper with no head. Aroma is light, raw, and purely of cole slaw. Not kidding. It’s a dead on match. A bit of the ole slaw in the flavor, too, with some rough copper hops and a tangy sweetness. Mostly on point for the style, but what a lame style it is. Go 100 /- plus or go home.

Bottle, slightly hazy deep amber with no head. Light grain a little toffee and grassiness in the nose. Ample toffee/caramel presence, bread and some herbal noble hop character. Pleasant level of malty sweetness. Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation. Solid stuff.
