Underhook (162) - Lincoln Park, New Jersey, USA - SEP 26, 2008
Pours fairly light amber. Good head and solid lacing. Smells of a little malt, fruit, weak. Nothing about this beer impressed me until I sipped it. Excellently balanced taste. Cricket Hill continues to impress me for a small local brewery. Lots of citrus notes there, some lemon and grapefruit topped with a hop punch akin to that of an IPA. I would actually almost consider this an IPA. Finishes hoppy/bitter. Smooth palate with a light, ticklish carbonation. Unlike other tasters, I didn’t find this beer to be bland at all -- very complex and shocking. Very surprising brew, thumbs up.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - SEP 26, 2008
Bottle. Pours an amber color with a regular white head. Nose is sweet, fruity and malty. I honestly wasn’t expecting much following the other reviews, but I was pleasently suprised, The brew was carmelized peaches with a malty undertone. Very smooth. The mouthfell was thin but the flavors were quite enjoyable. Might go here again, but the price is prohibitive at $4 for a 12 oz. bottle.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Bottle courtesy of decaturstevo. Poured amber with an off-white head. Sweet caramel aroma with a touch of a hop background. The flavor finds some sweet honey and caramel with some grainy undertones. Light body, hint of bitter in the ending.

ross (2075) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Bottle from Steveo, thanks. Label says cask ale. Orange colored pour with a white head on it. Sweet caramel smell, not much else. Light body, thin mouthfeel, a little bit of hops exist - light carbonation. Not alot to say about this one. Kind of bland.

Labeled as "cask ale". Pours a clear orange hued yellow with almost no head. Picking up some alcohol and grass in the nose. Faint hop bitterness. Finish is a little hot. Not a big fan

maeib (8602) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2008
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - GBBF 2008. A copper coloured beer with some whitish bubbles for a head. This is a nicely hoppy beer with citrus and pine notes. Just a touch of woodiness sets it apart from being an APA. I liked this a lot.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - AUG 12, 2008
12 oz bottle jcwattsrugger was kind enough to let me steal at the Richmond Summer Gathering. Labeled as "Colonel Blides Cask Ale". Hazy amber with a beige head. Sweet caramel and citrus (tangerine?) nose. Nice earthy flavors, floral bite, caramel and citrus. Fairly clean, lightly bitter finish. Nice.

Cask (GBBF 2008) - Copper brown/amber with a bit of a haze. Citrus hop aroma with a hint of tea. Clean citrus taste with tea and lemon. Refreshing
