12oz bottle-pours a thin tan head with large bubbles and copper color. Aroma is medium malt-caramel, secondary citrus/perfumy hops. Taste is medium malt-caramel, dry and bitter citrus/perfumy ops, some cherry. Rougher than the original American Ale by Cricket Hill. Also a bit over carbonated. Thanks decaturstevo for picking this out.

Bottle at Village Pub, KY. Poured a clear deep amber color with an average frothy white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Medium sweet malty and small hop aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Moderate bitter flavor with an medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Better than my expectations.

hopscotch (9556) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 2, 2008
Bottle… First Annual Treasure Coast Beer Festival 2008… Clear amber ale with a mid-sized, fizzy white head. Decent retention. Fruity, malty aroma… caramel, toffee. Medium-bodied with Champagne-like carbonation. Very well-balanced, but not a whole lot going on. Short, crisp, clean finish. A little better than expected… lacks the acetaldehyde found in their lager.

This beer looks good, but i am sorry it tastes like watered down shit. And I would NEVER choose this over a Sam Adams or anything similiar....just too watery and week. But a nice looking beer anyway.

Drake (8993) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2008
12 oz. bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop. Deep red color with a quickly disappearing head. Malty with a fruity hop aroma. Candy-like but still pleasant. Taste is thin with vegetal hops and lots of sugary malt notes. Thin body.

Bomber, where is good till date? Pours amber with foaming head, that does leave some lacing. Mildly barleywine aroma. Some bitterness, and barley, barleywine-red cross style. Drinkable. About average mouthfeel, creamy by the foam. Above-average carbonation. Not bad for Bud.
