DSG (5812) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Clear deep golden color with a small of-white head. Aroma of slightly biscuity/cookie-ish malt and some nice floral hops. Later a bit of butter. Slightly sweetish malt flavor, somewhat fruity, quickly turns to bitter floral and citric hops. Medium-bodied. Quite enjoyable.

12/25/11. Merry Christmas! 12oz bottle courtesy Cavie! Clear light copper pour with a small khaki head that fades to nothing and doesn’t lace at all. Light aroma with a touch of citrus, mostly lemon peel. Gross flavor of lemon peel, apples, butter, butterscotch, and burnt caramel. This is a disaster.

Fratto (2616) - Arlington, Texas, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Bottle from Cavie. Light pour with a white head. Aroma is sweet, almost spicy, toffee, and light fruit. Taste is burned toast, candy corn, cinnamon, and a little more char on the finish.

Cavie (3795) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear light orange color. Light ring of white head. Aroma is grainy, and butter with a bit of alcohol. Flavor is dry malts, slight sweet bread and grainy malts on the finish. Pretty standard.

crazyvin (1940) - New York, USA - OCT 17, 2011
A nice clear copper body with a thin white head. Head seemed to have good retention and some mild lace. Aroma had a big caramel malt presence upfront with some brown sugar notes. There was a slight spice note to it. Some floral hops in the back. Overall aroma was sweet, but with just the right amount of sweetness. Flavor had big malts as well mostly caramel but the brown sugar element was a little more prevalent. Some floral hops to balance it out and there was that spice element from the aroma almost like nutmeg. Finish was smooth and light. A good beer that was a little more malt based than hops.

Bottle pours a hazy copper with a thin white head. Scent is malt, straw and a whiff of caramel. Taste is malts, tea and earthy.

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 6, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a dark copper with a thin white head that falls to a ring. Bland aroma with light caramel notes, and a faint graininess. Taste is faint sweet caramel malts, breadiness, andlight hops. mouthfeel is thin and watery. Very bland.

Poured okay, a sort of glowing honey-orange with a white foam cap. Smelled okay, with some sugary notes and a little malt. Tasted...okay, but all the while I had it in my head that this was some kind of marzen/alt/amber/something...then I saw the claim of pale ale and if that’s the style we’re going for here, I have to dock the overall execution. Nearly no hop bitterness, flavor, or aroma.

12 oz bottle. Pale ale my ass. This tastes like a lager. If you like Budweiser you may enjoy this. Otherwise nothing to report here.

I’m getting a nice balance beer with great malt and hops but also a touch of nuts and maple syrup flavor. highly carbonating, tasty.
