Sammy (8850) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2011
Cigar City smokes NYC at Rattle N Hum. Hops in aroma, I was expecting more roast to be bang on the style. Carbonation comes through more aggressively. A good drinker, sessionable as I can have this and head back to whatever I was doing. An average beer overall however. Dark colour without noticeable head.

blipp (6277) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAR 4, 2011
Draft. Pours deep amber orange with a thin off white head. The aroma has light sweet malts with some toasty and nutty notes. The flavor is well balanced, with toasted malts, a light sweetness, and some floral hops. Decent.

dchmela (2667) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2011

Ontbeertaster (2339) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 27, 2011
Dark mild describes this one well, it pours quite dark but yet a lightness too, but tastes light for the way it appears, it has a taste medium bitterness and little bit of sweetness almost, good offering for a great brewery

Tmoney99 (10986) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Draft sample at CCB. Poured clear brown color with an average fizzy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate complex hop and bubblegum yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft drinkable beer.
