FROTHINGSLOSH (4843) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2008
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a mahogany color with a small brown head that faded quickly. The aroma was nicely malty, lightly roasty and had a hint of ripe fruits. The flavor was dryish and faintly tart with light fruits and a touch of nut. Rather subdued.

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 1/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
Strykzone (4832) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Uninspiring appearance. It is clear gold with a small head with little stamina. Aroma is raspberry KoolAid. Flavor is also uninspiring. A bit of caramel (not enough), a bit of floral (ditto), and some biscuit. Light honey shows up as the glass warmed. Feel is medium at best with a bit of prickly effects. Quite sweet.
