bgburdman9 (857) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2007
Bottle given by shigadeyo. Aroma of malt and some spices. Pours a brown color with some reddish hues. Not getting a lot of the scotch in this. Allright i guess.

Discofish (152) - USA - MAR 27, 2007
Pours a thin lacey head, light and malty, but undeveloped. Spicey notes fade into a smooth clean finish. Tasty, but a pretty tpyical lager.

IrishBoy (3821) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAR 26, 2007
Bottle; nose is sweet caramel and spices, clear cherry walnut with a small tan head; flavor of caramel malt, light spices, with a vanilla note. Finish is spicy from the thin body!

Boutip (4672) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 22, 2007
Bottle courtesy of Hogtownharry: Poured a medium brown color ale with a small foamy head with limited retention. Aroma of light roasted malt with some subtle semi-sweet caramel malt. Taste is also dominated by the mix between light roasted malt and caramel malt. Body is thinner then I would have expected and no hops presence could be detected. I thought this one was definitely lacking character and end up being quite boring.

omhper (19309) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2007 Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear dark ruby, rich creamy head. Spicy cardboardy nose. Sweet and medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Some fruits, evident blunt crystal malt character, lots of paper mash. Fairly low bitterness. A style of beer that solely relies on malt character, and in this case that malt character happens to be simplistic and harsh. A huge let down.

blatantdream (78) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 17, 2007
Bottle at New Beer Distributors. Pours a nice deep amber color. Tastes malty, spiced and has notes of sweet dark fruits. Overall pretty nice for a Winter Ale.

Cornfield (5465) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2007
The body’s a reddish chestnut and for a brief while it sports an off-white head. It’s a straightforward brew, sweet and malty with a touch of woody bitterness in the finish. Uncomplicated, but tasty.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2007
12 oz bottle. Aroma: malty, sweet, almost like a mild scotch ale. Taste: sweet and malty, but with an off metallic flavor, and stale malts. not good.

jlf278 (287) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 6, 2007
NIce looking copper ale with light head that fades after a minute or two. Smells nice and hoppy with some malt and walnut. Tastes like I’m sucking a copper penny. A little sweetness as it warms up to combat the metallic taste. Thin on the palate, but not watery. Not a terrible beer, but wishing I didn’t buy a 6 pk.
