Rastacouere (6125) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2005
Deep orange with a slight haze, faint white head. Straightforward sweet and grainy malts completed by a racy floral hop touch. Quite bitter, certainly dry, brings forth slight nutty oiliness, but remains tame in all its componenents. Light bodied, crisp texture. From average to average.

GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 1, 2006
Beautiful browish copper appearance. Smooth pour with limited head and surprisingly little aroma even with nose deep in the glass. It appears the scent needs to go through the mouth rather than the nostrils; I enjoyed a lingering aroma of the beer’s hops for a few moments following my first few sips. Surprisingly strong hoppiness for an amber lager. Not bad, but left me feeling like this beer is trying to compete in a different category

CamdenD (1092) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 7, 2007
Pretty average -- as the score indicates. Almost too flavorful for its style too sweet and sugary. Pours a nice dark mahogany brown with good lasting head. Smell is malt and brown sugar. The taste -- too syrupy.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2007
12 oz bottle. Hazy amber in color with a huge tan head. Aroma of sweet caramel, toffee, and bread. Taste is pretty sweet with caramel and toffee- hardly any hop character or bitterness to balance. Carbonation was very heavy and abrasive on the tongue and throat. This was definitely a bit old. perhaps re-rate on a fresher bottle or draft.

Not much to like about this beer. While the aroma was ok the aftertaste was not pleasant and hung on the tounge for a long time. I would not and did not order a second.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2006 Light brownish-amber color with a cream-colored head. Sweet, mallty with slightly cereal flavor. MIld aroma of malt and hops. Mildly hoppy finish. Slight amount of yeast flocuation at the bottom of the glass.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2006
(02.22.06) 12 oz brown bottle received as gift in a trade with Thaichile. Yeast conditioned bottle only 75% full with about 3” head space. Slight gusher on pouring. Pours hazy amber with small white head. Soft carbonation. Juicy fruit esters on nose. Light-to-medium bodied amber ale that starts dry with wisp of malt sweetness and light malt flavor. Slight sharpness on mouth. Finishes dry with light nutty malt and bitterness fade. Slight metallic aftertaste. Thin, watery flavored, overly dry, and lacking complexity. No discernable oxidation products, despite large head space. Borderline drinkable. Maybe an old bottle?

Aurelius (4109) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2007
Kinda stinky cereal malt aroma. Over-carbonated. Big head, good label, lightly hazy, medium PA-coloring. Don’t know that I’d call this a ’Dark Lager’ - it’s really no darker than say, Yuengling. Makes a big icecream head. Tart, seedy. Very, very fizzy. Finishes quick and moderately sugary. From the bottle. A mishmash. I’m really a bit puzzled, looking at the other ratings, which say things like ’mahogany’ and ’dark amber’. This beer is clearly labeled ’Fisherman’s Brew’ but is only a medium orange-amber.

pepper spice and malt flavor to this cloudy tea looking brew. a bit too little hop and this brew tastes like something is missing. a whole dimension of character, flavor!? call it what you like but at least the palate is open to insert something, what !!! with a good enough name, bottle and appearance cape ann reformulate this brew a bit and show us your skills. good luck since it won’t take too much.
