same beer as Roscoes Hop House PA? [Genesee in Rochester NY]-12oz bottle pours gold with an offwhite head. Aroma is caramel-light malt. Taste is caramel-light malt, some spice hop. Decent training wheels starter.

bhensonb (10343) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 16, 2012
Bottle from a Save-Mart. Pours light amber with a light beige head. Aroma of light roast malt with a hint of citrus. Med body plus. Frothy carb helps with the body. The malt is roasty enough to qualify for APA, and there’s some light hop bitter which seems citrus. A decent ale, but certainly not one to excite the nose and mouth.

Tmoney99 (10076) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Bottle. Poured deep amber color with a large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate smooth hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate balanced flavor with a smooth balanced finish of average duration. Soft drinkable brew

brokensail (9918) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Amber pour with a white head. Nose is watery, grassy, and oxidized. Cardboard, and lots of it. Bread, some orange peel, apple, and metal. The flavor is pretty much the same. Bread, grass, water, and cardboard. Some metal and apple with hints of orange peel. Light bitterness.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2012 Bottle… Clear orange ale with a large, frothy, off-white head. Good retention. The faint nose offers bread, citrus fruits and caramel. Light to medium-bodied and watery with lazy carbonation. The flavor is well-balanced but mostly bland, presenting light notes of barley malt, caramel and apple. Finishes flat and mildly sweet.

Drake (7940) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 7, 2011
Bottle from Teeter Barracks Charlottesville. Pours a clear amber with a large frothy greenish-white head. Maybe it was the light I was in but it looked weird, and I drink in that same light all the time without issue. Aroma of floral hops and a soapy note. The taste is earthy, floral and fruity hops with a bitter finish. Thin-medium bodied and not well balanced.

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle on Amtrak Train 27 - The Empire Builder ( from Binny’s South Loop) - 04/11/12. Clear golden amber with a thin off white head. Nose comprises light floral tones, hops, pale malt and a little herb. Taste follows nose, fairly bland, floral and herb tones, light citrus. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Dull and bland.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
drowland (5953) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - NOV 21, 2011
11/21/11. 12oz bottle. Clear amber/copper/dark orange pour with a small, clumpy khaki head that’s gone fast and barely laces. Generic, dusty old hop aroma of earth with a bit of orange peel and metal. Sweet, caramel flavors with butterscotch and definite hints of ketchup and metal. Perhaps not disgusting, but definitely dissatisfying. Blegho.

Braudog (5486) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Bottle. Golden amber with an average head. This drinks with a very even keel, with just the barest kiss of hops and an acidic finish. It’s inoffensive in almost every manner, but doesn’t stand out in anyway either. (#4246, 9/10/2011)

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
PorterPounder (5192) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Kerry Forest - 12 oz. Dark golden pour, thin, but persistent white head. Aroma has a slight spruce hint to it - not unpleasant. Flavor has a slightly tangy and bitter bent to it with some brief citrus notes, some nuttiness and some bready doughy notes. Mouthfeel is nice and clean. Much better than expected.
