Bottle. Dark reddish gold with a thick white head that left some lacing. Nose: light floral hops, caramel malt and a touch of molasses. Medium to thin bodied. Flavor has notes of citrus and pine over a sweet vanilla-toffee background.

rich color. refreshing and great tasting when extremely cold. Very Hoppy, small head, medium to full body. A bit harsh at first, but very drinkable after the 1st few sips.

This was beer. It wasn’t great. It wasn’t bad, either. Just an okay beer in all respects: color was okay, head was okay, aftertaste was a little metallic, aroma was okay, hopped some, sweet some.

notalush (4748) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2005
A respectable vienna - strawberry blonde in color, herbal aroma with a touch of sweetness - quite hoppy, even for the style - a mild grainy maltiness - finishes clean

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2005
Draft at Spring Brewtopia 2005... Sparkling clear, deep gold lager with a creamy, off-white head. Decent retention and excellent, interesting lacework. Foral nose with just a hint of caramel. Perfectly balanced flavor... nice, sweet maltiness countered by the perfect amount of hops. A little citrus fruit and toffee as well. Light-bodied and thin with fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish.

Pours with a two-finger off-white head that fades quickly leaving a little lace. Cloudy amber color. Medium bodied and medium carbonation. Slight hoppy nose. Starts as with a mix of hops and background sweetness, finishes hoppy with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. $1.35 for a 12 oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, MA.

OldGrowth (2590) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 1, 2005
Bottle, from Julio’s. Good nose, Little nutty, little grassy, little sourdough. Just a touch of haze, reddish orange color, small head that faded. Bitter sweet flavors, same as aromas, little carmel and metallic too. Thinner body, lite creamy kinda oily mouthfeel. nutty bitter finish. Easy drinking amber lager. Nothing origanal, but a good lawnmower brew.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2006 GIBF 2004: Hazy dark orange with a medium creamy head. Light grassy hops aroma, with some caramel malts, starts and ends lightly bitter, fizzy and watery texture.

Dang! This beer is really strong. I had it from a bottle in Gloucester and saw it on tap in Magnolia. It seems to be a fairly typical strong porter-like lager. Nutty, with a caramel-colored head, which quickly dissipates. This is an OK beer to drink very slowly (as with dinner) and not one to have a couple of during the game. Go Sox!
