bhensonb (11525) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 4, 2007
Malty aroma. No detectable hop. Nice coppery color with a beige head that’s substantial. A bit thin bodied. Starts with malt medium sweet, develops a bit more body, finishes not very dry. Hard to pick up any bitter. Decent drink, if you are not looking for hop.

DuffMan (7030) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 25, 2011

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 13, 2009
Bottle courtesy of RiversideAK. Pours copper with a white head. Smells of caramel, roses, earthy, perfumey. Tastes spicy with lots of rosey hints and a nice fruity finish.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2006
Bottle: Amber hued caramel, mild sudsy off-white head, a few splotches of lacing, very light carbonation.   Malty nose, semi-sweet, seems to be caramel malts and perhaps vienna.   Lightly roasted malt on the tongue, slight breadiness, not as sweet as I thought it would be.   Clean, very low hop bitterness, smooth, somewhat dry, with a pleasant sticky malt accentuated exit.   Light, but still enjoyable.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   I only wished it would be a tad sweeter.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2009
Aroma is very toasty with a touch of sweet caramel malts. Some crisp hoppy bitterness too. Pours reddish/copper with a thin head. The flavor is very toasty with a touch of sweetness and a super crisp hop bitterness in the finish. I really like the clean crisp bitterness in the finish. Lagers are under rated. It is not barrel aged with lacto and brett, so it cant be any good I guess...

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 3, 2006
Draught at the Brewpub: Pellucid amber color, nose is vegetal with roast and medium crystal malts. The flavor is light in body, chewy. Decent flavor, a bit of an environmental distraction while I was rating this one. I got my numbers down before my notes so I don’t have any other details descriptors.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 7, 2007
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle during the ABA’s Annual Meeting beer swap. Pours a burnt reddish amber brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind a nice white ring and film. Just some spotty lacing. Aroma of light roasted caramel malt, some peppery spice, some dark bread dough, and a touch of flowery hops. Taste is medium bodied, semi sweet, lightly carbonated with flavors of caramel malt and some apple bread character. Finish is semi-sweet with a bready aftertaste that sticks around.
