Deep copper red wtih about 1/2" of white head that goes away quickly, but maintains the slight moon ring down the glass until the end. Strong aroma of hops a beer that tasted alot like it smelled. It leaves a medium bittering on the back of your tongue

Avengedpoet (329) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 7, 2009
On tap at the brewery in Nashville. Deep red/amber color. Crystal malt and citrus hop aroma. Taste is hoppier; more bitter than flavorful or aromatic. Interesting for an amber beer, but definitely not my favorite.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - JUN 21, 2009
On tap at Big River Grille, Nashville. I don’t know...I feel there was something wrong here. Taste is off while aroma and appearance are good. I need to retry this sometime.

On tap at Big River Grille, Nashville. Pours dark brown/red with nice head and good lacing. Nice floral hoppy aroma. Good hop hit and nice sweet malt taste.

Ughsmash (7364) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2009
On tap at Big River – WDW. Poured clear coppery-amber with a short cap of beige head.. left sticky lacing as it descended. The aroma picked up sweet candied, toasted caramel with lesser notes of dark fruit.. some citrus overtones, but they were mostly suppressed by the sweetness. Sweet caramel and dark fruits on the flavor’s core with a decent dose of hops showing up (scratchy, rough pine and citrus primarily).. rough and bitter again on the finish. Light-medium bodied with a good moderate level of carbonation.. bitterness was too rough for this to be enjoyable.

FanwickMike (6) - USA - JAN 7, 2009 does not count
Tasted as part of a sampler at Big Rivers’s Fla location....huge taste of diacetyl, truly unpalatable. I hope this was just a bad batch, as the other beers in the sampler were at least "OK"
