BeerandBlues2 (9460) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Tap at the brewery. Pours clear dark amber with a small, fizzy off-white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is toast, cookie, and light caramel malt with earthy and spicy hops and light date notes. Flavor is malt forward with medium hops and bitterness, a clean lager character and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

drowland (5981) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Sampled during CBC 2013. Weird - how did I miss this during RBWG? Amber pour with a small tan head. Toffee aroma, light black tea, caramel and some bready and biscuity malt character. Lightly sweet flavor, caramel, bready malts. Not bad.

hopscotch (8902) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Growler... Pours clear and amber with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The nose is a subtle marriage of biscuit and toffee malts. Light to medium-bodied with busy carbonation. The flavor is perfectly-balanced, but bland, presenting slight nuances of minerals and hops. Short, crisp, clean finish. Refreshing overall. Growler courtesy of ygtbsm94!

Leighton (10542) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2013
Growler shared on the RBWG 2013 bus - big thanks to Brad! Pours clear, golden-brown with a light, white foam head. Not bad, some toasted cereal grains in here, brown bread, slight leafy bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mellow toasty bread finish. Fine stuff.
