COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An amber English-style ale that has a nice balance between hops and malt. It's the most popular of our beers and the most versatile in terms of pairing with food or people.

I have a lot of respect for the name--well done with the rhyming! Moderate aroma of hops and malts (fairly standard), somewhat woody with grape that is repeated in a grape-like flavor. Orange with mild lacing.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 18, 2004
750ml Bottle: Sampled at Brickskeller w/ argo0 & chris_o. Hazy amber orange, tiny bubbles, really huge off-white head. This head on this bottle kept foaming out of the bottle, forcing us to pour it from time to time. Aroma: mild alcohol, yeast, wet grass, fruit, apple, pear, citrus. Perfect palate IMO - lively carbonation that doesnít completely take over, very crisp, light to medium bodied. Taste: Sweet malts, yeast, lemon, orange, mild, as it warms notes of fruit, apple, pear, sour grape, and sour yeast come out. Another great offereing from cisco.

Hmm...I found this rating written on a napkin in my laptop bag. Iím absolutely uncertain of where I drank this, but Iím guessing that I had it on tap on my Boston/NYC trip a few months ago. It was crisp and hazy-amber colored with minimal head. Very clean tasting with some fruity-hop flavors. Subtle apple presence, very nice.

Poured a clear medium amber color with a smaller white head. Citrus (oranges) aroma and tastes. Some caramel. Thin body. Slightly sweet. This was a nice refreshing beer (I just drank two stouts before this one).

Light copper body, medium head and moderate lacing. Herbal hops paired with lightly caramel malts and fruits. Nice dry finish. Not a very thick brew.

jgb9348 (4751) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2004
Great copper coloured body with a dense off-white head and some ruby highlights. Aroma of light hops, wheat, corn, bubblegum & hot dogs-YES, HOT DOGS! Medium to Light-bodied; Mild malt flavour with hops and some citrus following up. Aftertaste left bland, only a small amount of hops bitter up the palate. Overall, a not-so-good APA, but decent to try & a treat in Georgetown. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Dean & Deluca in Georgetown (Washington) D.C. on 27-August-2004 on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
was a little embarassed after I poured this. As the head consumed about 2/3 of the glass and the beer barely taking 1/3 at the bottom. The head falls amazingly fast but not fast enough. The texture is that of a bubble bath, very weak, bubbly and frothy. On top a plateau is standing. The color is a lovely orange. The head is a constant battle. Letís let it sit for 10 minutes. The head dies down and to much surprise the lace is not sticky. Aromas of cherries, grapes and orange sweetness. Not much flavor to begin with. Excessive carbonation which affected the flavor and the mouthfeel. Not hoppy enough to satisfy me. Still, the sweet orange flavors and the spicy aftertaste is enjoyable. Some light fruits in the flavor as well. This isnít a bad brew but it isnt a special one.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Solid peachy hue..huge, soft, delicate, diaphanous head, gently crumbling, leaving lace...Aroma: fresh, airy, citric, but well-rounded and pleasant... Taste: very carbonate, fruity, and tangy up front, but overall smooth...lightly flavorful, peach and apricot appearances are muted, but appreciable and brightly flavorful...medium bodied, brief, fruity finish, decently fizzy texture.. pretty nice pale, all told, and held in this gi-mongous 26 oz bottle, Iíve still got some drinking ahead of me apparently...yum, but, oh, the carbonationís a killer and Iím burping like a man afire, here!

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - SEP 29, 2004
750 ml. brown champagne bottle. No freshness date seen anywhere. Loud hiss when it was opened. Poured out an orangish yellow color. Humongous, loose white head comprised of super fine bubbles. Over carbonated to the max. I had to use a spoon and scoop off the head just to be able to drink it. Slightly hazy. Aromas are of faint background hops, spritzy carbonation burns the nose when smelled. Slight maltiness, and aromas of orange peel. Not much more than that. Tastes are of prickly carbonation, malts, and faint hops. Yeasty bite to it as well. Fizzy mouthfeel, bites your tongue from being so over carbonated. Finishes prickly, and slightly bitter. Nothing to write home about here. Points off for being so over carbonated.
