GIJOE (1051) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Pours a nice ruby reddish brown with a thin whitish head that dissipates quickly. Nose is malty, with faint hop notes. Taste is well balanced. Malty sweet beginning. Moderately hoppy finish. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Decent brew.

Wife ordered this draft at their brewpub, served in a pint glass. Clear rusty reddish color with off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt sweetness and a light yeast fruitiness. Taste is pretty much the same, maybe some light nuttiness and grass. Light body, moderate carbonation, dry with clean finish. Probably the style but it’s pretty much caramel malt sweetness to me, alright overall.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6197) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2013 Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a dark red-caramel color with a large foamy tan head that left great lacing. The aroma was vague sweet dark fruits and a hint of caramel. The flavor was caramel, crystal malt, a somewhat bitter presence and had faint dark fruits. Medium length finish of caramel and dark fruits. Medium body and smooth. Meh.

Very dark pour. Breast and all malted up. A little bitter on the finish. Not my favorite style, but still drinkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GTAEgeek (1755) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 20, 2012
22 oz. bottle. Dark, hazy orange with a big, persistent, tan head. Strong notes of pears, molasses, cherries, red wine, and a metallic twang. The flavor is very sour and bitter. The body is medium to heavy, with a sticky, very acidic feel. Overall, this is a funky and interesting, but not that tasty.

Draft. Ruby color, thin tan edge head. Aroma of caramel, butterscotch, cherries, subtle chocolate. Taste is very malty but balanced. Sweet but not overly so. Best of the bunch at the brewpub that day.

nimbleprop (6883) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 7, 2011
22oz bottle pours a mostly transparent, deep, brick red with a thin, creamy, off white head. Nose is malty, a touch sour, apples, metallic, a little acidic. Flavor is malty, lightly hoppy, apples, sour mash, crackers. Watery finish, a touch sour. I’m not allegding infection, I think perhaps this sat too long on a shelf.
