Bottle
Amber with a light filmy head and spotty lacing. Aromas are malt dominant with caramel roast and crystal. Hops are sweet and fruity as well as slightly earthy. Some alcohol along with citrus. Flavors are nutty with loads of sweet caramel. Bittering hops come out with a slight fruitiness. Creamy mouthfeel with a tangy bite. Thanks DYC!

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 12, 2004
Ruby Yorkshire terrier color, nice sized head with good retentiveness. A rich malty perfume dances with wild fruity notes & a whisper of grainy tendencies. The tastes present a balanced show of crystal malt sweetness & hop bitterness. Not a very exciting show. Tail is a bit too bitter. No or little umami on this one. Thanks DYC!

DYCSoccer17 (3498) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 3, 2004
Sweet malty aroma with some metallic hop notes in there. I do get a little fruitiness in there as well. Mildly hazy dark copper/amber color with a small quickly dissipating light tan head. Lots of roasted and pale malts in this beer to start. Finishes with a nice bitter hoppiness. Nice body and very adequate.

sloth (2647) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - OCT 30, 2004
Small offwhite head, fair retention, spotty lacing. Clear amber color, Vinous nose, grapes, lightly grainy. Medium body. Medium sweet maltyness, grainy, wort like flavors. Finish is fairly dry, light astringency. Thanks go to dycsoccer17 for this bottle of brew. He added it to a crossed up shipment. True ratebeer spirit!

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Another Yankee done fooled me! I mean, what should one expect from a bottle merely marked "Old Yankee Ale", anyway? Appearance: dark, rich amber/ brown color, beneath a tawny tan head. Aroma: sweet and malty, toffeeish, and distinctly nutty. Light hoppiness, medium body, excellent texture, delightful play on the tongue. Fruitiness comes forward in the middle, and rides out to the end. Very smooth and easy, quite nice overall. Felt like a fuller bodied brown ale, than a "pale ale."

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - AUG 11, 2004
08.11.04 12oz bottle. It took a while to get this all into the glass, what with the head that wouldn’t quit. Hazy amber color with aforementioned MASSIVE tan head and thick, sticky lace. Aromas smack of grapefruit, some pine, some sweetness. The body is medium and clean. The beer has a hint of metallic flavor; coupled with the giant head, I’m tempted to think it’s not in the best shape it could be. I press on, regardless. A resinous, piney bite cuts into what had been a cleanly malty front balancing with a nicely floral hop character. More resiny bitterness persists as a chaser, not unpleasantly, inviting another sip. I’m having trouble getting past the metallic tinge; otherwise, it’s a good find.

Holdwine (1131) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 28, 2003
Nicely done. More English ale than American. Malted overtones are tops. Mellowing hops to finish. Deep dark amber color. This is a great beer.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2004 GIBF 2004: Not as good as last years. Maybe older? GIBF 2003: Deep orange color, sweet malts aroma with a touch of hops, full bodied, ends a little bitter.

desurfer (1253) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2003
Golden mahogany body, small tan head. Sweet aroma, piney hops present. Sticky hop flavor but enough malt to keep it reasonable. Well balanced and very drinkable. Excellent.
