Skip (206) - Indiana, USA - MAY 2, 2004
Thin red over pale copper color. The aroma is of malt, but it was very faint and ephemeral. Taste is more dry than it is bitter; there is some taste of the malt, but both that taste and the mouthfeel are thin. No head retention despite active carbonation.

BearBrewer (86) - New York, east village, New York, USA - APR 13, 2004
Pours an average clear, yellowish color. Small white head. Thin flavor, some hoppiness and strong alcohol taste. Lots of legs. Drinkable, but not one of my favorites.

hopscotch (10523) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2004
Sparkling clear, copper lager with a mid-sized, frothy, khaki-colored head. OK lacing. The aroma is of honey, toffee and dark bread. Malty, sweet flavor. Light maple syrup, pistachio, light molasses, sweat and clover honey. Decently bittered. Medium to full-bodied with a heavy, oily mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Lengthy, sweet, lightly chocolatey finish. Better than expected!

Shag (2765) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 21, 2004
A dark reddish appearance. Aroma is caramel and grapes. Flavor is fairly light with some sour grapes The aftertaste has a slight bitterness. This tastes more like an Irish Ale than a Dunkel. Overall its not a bad beer.

Braudog (6177) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAR 13, 2004
Rusty brown with a standing head. Sweet apple-like aroma. Very fruity for a darker beer, sugary and woody. Odd.

Clear copper with a foamy light tan head. Sweet caramel with some roasted nuttiness. The flavor is medium sweet with a wee bit of bitterness. Not too bad really. Body is medium and smooth.
