hotstuff (3954) - Indiana, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Rated on 2-22-2011. This bottled beer has a small fizzy tan head that quickly dissipates, transparent orange body with fast rising carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is malt, floral, grassy hops, sweet, and fruity. The taste is sweet, lightly bitter, malty, fruity, and floral hops. The mouth feel is semi-lively and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is very dry tasting and it did not leave me wanting another go at it. It lacks character and the flavor was not very enticing.

Extremer Föderal Geschmack, vordergründig Marzipan. Im Abgang schmeckt das vier dann sehr sauer. Absolut nicht lecker.

Cor cobre com espuma de pouca formação e boa persistência. Aroma de caramelo, frutas secas só fundo. No sabor, caramelo, com médio amargor e dulçor, no final um pouco de frutas secas. Final rápido e seco com amargor persistindo um pouco. Boa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hohops (136) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2014
Appearance- caramel, amber, small off white head which quickly fades completely. Aroma- malt, yeast, bread. Taste- solid bitter backbone, smooth, not much carbonation, coats the mouth well, fruity hints, vague bit of caramel, quite well balanced, a short finish but has some juicy hop resins. A pretty good ale.
