Dogbrick (8681) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2010 Bottle from Festival Foods. The beer is a clear amber-gold color with a medium ivory white head that diminishes steadily. Spotty lacing. Grainy malt and fruit in the nose. Light body with a fruity character and flavors of caramel malt, crackers and mild hops. The finish is short and malty with a fruit aftertaste. Just average overall.

Bottle from Capone’s. Pours chill hazy deep copper with 1-finger bubbly off-white head. Nose is grainy caramel malt, lemongrassy hops, apricotty fruit. Tastes medium to light in palate heft, with caramel malt, grainy notes, subdued hops, and some fruity finishing hints. Not terribly complex.

I love central waters but this was just generic swill. Do us all a favor central waters, stop brewing this and bottle and sell us Exodus.

Ughsmash (7182) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Bottled. Poured clear reddish-orange with a short-ish cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up sweeter caramel and redder fruits paired with a hit of vanilla and peat.. candied overall complexion that I enjoyed. The flavor had sweet caramel, toffee, and red fruits at the core.. spicy pine and earthy bitterness around.. finished with some sharp boozy notes and bitterness, losing some balance. Light-medium bodied and dry on the palate.. OK on the front half, but unnecessarily sharp on the back.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Pours a glowing transparent copper amber with a thin covering of spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of lightly sweet, toasty and grainy caramel malt with a touch of hay and noble hops. Starts with some light malty sweetness and grain husk notes with some earthy bittering hops before a drier, smooth finish. Fairly true to style, but could be a bit cleaner.

BVery (6974) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 3, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Pour was clear orange with a nice sized white head. Aroma of bread and caramel. Medium mouthfeel. Taste is caramel, yeast, and a slight hop bite. Decent beer, and highly sessionable.

phaleslu (6842) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2011
12 oz. bottle from michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! Pours a clear amber color with a finger-thick off-white head that leaves some sloppy lacing in the glass. Aroma of toast, dry grains, roasted barley malts, earth, oats, cereal- just a ton of grainy malts. Flavor of cereal, corn, barley malts, oats, wheat, faint fruit, and grass. Light-bodied, with high carbonation and a very organic, grainy, earthy mouthfeel. I didn’t know this was organic until just now, and I totally pick up on that character in a big way. This isn’t a great beer, but it’s certainly interesting and worth trying.

TheAlum (5909) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2011
12 oz bottle from Casanova (Hudson, WI). Pours a crisp amber pour, some reddish copper glow, with just a faint haze. A moderate frothy tannish white head dies to a small layer, light lacing. Aromas are crisp cereal grains, touches of caramel, toast, and biscuits. Not too sweet, as florals and grass compliment, with a light dryness, touches of sweet malts still coming through. Simple yet balanced, a light hop dusting on a relatively clean beer. Initial is lighter bodied, touches of dry cereal grains, biscuits, some light toast mix with some grassy and floral hops, light and clean, a touch of soap. Pretty well balanced, with a nice toasty grain bill, some light grass hops, touches of sweeter toffee. I don’t mind this, a clean more toasty sessioner, with good toast, biscuits, and a touch of more substantial sweet toffee. A touch of tea, cereal. Light grassiness. Clean finish with just a touch of spiciness from the hops. Not bad, but forgettable.
