brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Dark amber pour with an off-white head. Nose of biscuit and apple. Grass, toast, maybe some toffee, and water. A touch of toffee malt flavor along with toast and bread. Grassy hops, water, and apple. Not terribly offensive, but not enjoyable either.

bhensonb (14167) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Bottle from a Save-Mart. Pours more gold than amber. Small creamy near-white head. Very, very light aroma of caramel. Med body almost. Flavor is light caramel with some sort of light hoppy bitter. The finish is sort of that way. It’s balanced, but there are so few ingredients that that seems inappropriate to evaluate. But it’s way, way ahead of the macro lagers!

Tmoney99 (13605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle. Poured a clear golden color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting and had fair lacing. Light to medium balanced aroma. Medium body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of short to moderate duration. Soft brew that was worth trying once.

Drake (11937) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Teeter Barracks Road Charlottesville. Pours a clear amber color with a thin white head that fades quickly. Aroma of caramel, nutty notes, floral hops. The taste is caramel, apple-like fruit notes, faint hops. Almost a bit sugary. Thin-medium bodied.

hopscotch (10645) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2012 Bottle… Clear light amber ale with a small, creamy, taupe head. Subtle bouquet of cereal grains and caramel. Light to medium-bodied and watery with soft carbonation. Sweet, mostly nondescript flavor. Whispers of caramel, toffee and apple. Short, sweet finish.

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - NOV 22, 2011
11/22/11. 12oz bottle. Very light pour for an amber... clear, light copper at best, under a small, creamy khaki head that’s gone fast. Light aroma of caramel, powdered sugar, fusel alcohols, and a bit of metal. This smells like a wussy malt liquor. Sweet rusty caramel flavor as well. Man, this is not great.

PorterPounder (7417) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 19, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Liquors - Kerry Forest - 12 oz bottle. Light copper pour, sparkling, with a thing white head that sticks around. Very neutral aroma - pick up some very faint hard candy notes. Flavor is very bland and just tastes cheap. Some faint caramel notes, brief citrus - but not in a bitter way - more like artificial orange flavor. Mouthfeel is thin and slightly stinging. Did not expect much - so not disappointed.

Radek Kliber (7165) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 24, 2014
Where and how: HT, bottle 355 ml
Aroma rough, boozy front with toasted malts. At least it does have nice hop backing. Honey like accents on top end.
Appearance :
Top: lighter fizzy top.
Base: clear golden.
Palate : mid-lighter body.
Taste: Reminds me of our local Sleeman offerings. Decent front feel but substance does not carry for long. Forgettable finish.
other notes still, fairly clean run-of-the-mill choice.

wlajwl (5834) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Aroma is mildly nutty malts and slightly musty. The flavor is mildly sweet malts, possibly caramel and a slightly sticky finish.

jgb9348 (5725) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Lightish amber coloured body with some light copper tints. Aroma of pale malt, nuts, a touch of earth and very little else - very mild. Light-bodied; Strong soapy malt flavour with some older malt, a non-existant hop flavour and nothing but perhaps some nuts and earth - pretty bad. Aftertaste shows a hint of light caramel and malt - that’s it. Overall, a pretty bad beer - but that was sadly expected. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Harris Teeter in Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia on 03-February-2013 sampled a day later after a hockey game in Arlington, VA.
