Nate (3994) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2002
Flowery sweet aroma, tea, and astringent mild hops. Big creamy off-white head on what looks like dark-brewed iced tea. Smooth palate, with almost no carb - silky, medium watery body. Light bitter hops and light sweet malt. Slight metallic of can and sour tang. Not a bad ale - very light with smooth sweetish after.

yeasty aroma but as was the theme of the night’s sampling way too light in body

007lund (92) - Ann Arbor, USA - JUL 29, 2002
Beautiful smell, nice head, hoppy. Earthy taste. I didn’t like it much at first, but it gets better as you get used to the taste. Nice to have occasionally.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2002
This beer poured a dark amber color and left a off white bubbly head that left some nice lace. It had an aroma of hops, malt and a little smokiness. The flavor was of malt with some smokiness. The finish was smokey with a dry, slightly bitter aspect to it. A good beer

Ernest (7123) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 21, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2003 Draught can. Head is initially small, creamy, white, fully lasting. Body is medium amber, light density of tiny particles. Aroma is lightly malty (molasses, dark bread). Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly bitter, lightly acidic. Light body, creamy texture, soft carbonation.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUL 16, 2002
Smoky roasted coffee aroma. Malty beginning, some hops towards the end. Caramel, coffee in flavor, very smooth and pleasant mouthfeel. Sweetness abounds. Not bad!

Smokey caremel aroma, light roasted flavor, sweet finish.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2002
Pretty auburn color. Less head than expected. Nose is average, some definite smoky peatiness, but not as rich as I’d like. Flavor is again very smoky with healthy scotch tastes. Finishes piney and a bit sweet. It’s not horrid, but when I can get McEwan’s or Kilt Lifter, there’s no reason to try this again.

Smokey initial taste, good malt feel. Seemed a bit past its prime.
