750mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small head. Nose is oxidized, with cardboard, earthy notes and muddy yeast. Flavour isn’t quite as bad, but it’s certainly off, with loads of oxidation and cardboard. Can’t tell if this would’ve good when new. Drain pour as it is.

Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours with a foamy, off-white head and a hazy golden orange body. Aroma of corn, buttered toast, honey, grain, light berries and a banana dessert covered with a bitter butterscotch. A touch of rotten apple as well. Taste is caramel, buttered toast and fruit compote. Lightly fizzy mouthfeel.

phaleslu (7362) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2010
22 oz. bottle from Midtown Liquors in Tulsa. Pours a cloudy amber with some orange and red tints and a finger-thick, foamy eggshell white head. Aroma of floral hops, banana, yeast, pepper, clove, sweet malts, pears, and apples. Flavor is also floral, fruity, yeasty, malty, sweet, and spicy. Really nice and complex. Medium-bodied, with a malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Alcohol is completely masked. Very cool beer, and the best thing I’ve had yet from the state of Oklahoma.

Bottle - Vintage 2012 - Malty and a bit of chalk. Very carbonated and clear caramel. Light raisin, dried fruit and a bit of caramel sweetness. A little past its prime.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 19, 2008
Bottle courtesy of soonah. Pours copper with a white head. Smells citrussy with lots of perfumy wildflower hints and metallic. Tastes earthy with a light fruity character. Mothfeel is peppery with a finish that yields an element of spiciness.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Having had a few Krebs’ beers (including Texas Sux), this one surprised me. Not great, but nice. It had a hazy amber body with a quickly fading, slender head. The aroma was yeasty, had some toffee, a quiet spiciness, citrus fruit, and dried grasses. The is a bit sweeter than the nose promised, seems like a dollop of honey was added, and there’s a light sourness near the finish. Decent.

Thanks to a generous trader for sending this my way. Served in a wine glass with some rustic French-inspired soup courtesy of Jared. Pours a very light copper color. It initially has a white head, but can’t hold it at all. There is very, very little lacing. Even a goo, heavy swirl won’t bring the head back. The nose has some subtle light malt and a bit of faint earthiness. There is a small quantity of dry caramel in there as well. The taste has some light earth and slight hop dryness along with some bread. Pretty basic, but okay. Light body with moderate carbonation. Drinks fairly well; this was enjoyable, though not terribly memorable. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-09-2011
