bellco33 (277) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Poured from bottle into pint glass: Pours dark golden / straw with a one-finger head. Aroma is floral with a hint of pine. Taste is pretty good, touch of sweetness and pine up front, finishes with the floral, bitter hops. Medium bodied, above average carbonation, but a bit harsh on the finish. Pretty good beer!

Pours light amber into a shaker. White head with little retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Sour cracker aromas. Sharp with sourdough and butterscotch upfront leading to a sour earth finish.

AirForceHops (2992) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 22, 2013
12 oz. bottle from Julio’s liquors. Paid $2.29 before Wild 6 discount. Nice buy! Cloudy gold in color with thin spider web lace down the side of the glass. Nose is vibrant floral hops with a touch of pine. Flavor is sweet pilsner malt and a bit of sugar up front with the floral hops being in abundance in the finish. Dry texture with good carbonation. This is really nice in a bottle which means it’s a home run on draft. Real nice surprise here, as I had no expectations.

On tap at the source. Comes to the table a crystal clear pale straw color with a solid white head that leaves lots of lace. The aroma is light sugar with a bready hint and spicy floral hops to balance. The flavor is light sugar with a solid spicy hop bite and low hop bitterness. Medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a slick bubbly mouthfeel. Decent enough brew but not my favorite of the night.

Thanks to Travlr. I always wanted a blonde on blonde and now I got it. Aroma was very light toasted malt notes, sweetness. Flavor had some lght malts. Touch metalic, but better than my initial smell.

Bottle from Julio’s. clody golden yellow color, fluffy white head. Aroma of citursybgrass, subtle white pepper. Taste is peppery straw. Tasted side by side with some Hookers, it just seemed appropriate. Thomas Hooker, that is.
