Drake (11781) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 26, 2010
Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a copper brown color, mostly clear with a very faint haze. Large creamy tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of earthy hops and toffee. The taste is malty and toffeeish with earthy and citrus hops and a bitter finish. Medium bodied. Well balanced. Nice beer.

Had on draft at the brewery for the Crawfish Boil. A-pours a hazy reddish copper color with a nice light tan colored head. S-the nose is light, pale malt up front, notes of citrus with grassy hops behind. T-light pale and crystal malts up front, notes of caramel, big hop presence behind. pine, citrus, lots of grassy hops in back, light bitterness in the finish. M-smooth and creamy on the palate, syrupy medium body with a moderate to strong carbonation balancing. D-this is a very tasty pale ale with a great hop presence in the back, solid feel and a very well done beer that goes done nicely on a warm day.

On tap at Dark Horse during our trip there during RBSG. Pours a clear ruby brown with a thin white head. Very soft citrus and light malt. Soft and clean, light citrus. Light malt leading into a crisp bitterness on a very slow finish.

VertBaconStrips (2320) - Blerkablerka, NIUE - JUN 21, 2011
At the brewery during RBSG 2010. Hazy red with a puffy lid. The aroma is a bit different but it is super fresh with sweet fruits and citrus, red apple skin, some tropical things as well and caramel. Great fruity aroma, light pine and very good malts - mainly caramel. Sweet malts, grapefruit. The bitterness is surprisingly light. Very yummy brew. Chewy.

hopscotch (10612) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2010
Draft… RBSG 2010… Mostly clear, dirty orange ale with a small, wispy, white head. Fantastic retention. Not all that aromatic - nutty and earthy with sturdy caramel malt as the foundation. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and modest carbonation. The flavor is malty and lightly sweet – nutty and caramely, but not cloying in the least. Well-balanced, malty finish.

deyholla (10000) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 2, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a slightly hazy amber orange with a near white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a nice citrus hop profile with a bit of underlying sweet grains and floral notes. Flavor was similar with citrus hops throughout with a backing sweet grains and some floral notes coming out in the finish.

wmubronco1992 (700) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - AUG 27, 2010
Draft at the Dark Horse. Pours a rich amber. Medium off white head. Good retention. Nice lacing. Hard for me to get any aroma. Flavor is more carmally then hoppy. I actually thought this was an amber ale until told otherwise. Very rich. Body is on the high side of medium. Given this beer was brewed to benefit a local charity I really wasn’t expecting it to be so good. Like almost every other Dark Horse brew this is a winner.

Tmoney99 (13469) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2010
MBGSF 2010. Poured hazy amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bitter flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - DEC 8, 2010
A bit dark for a pale ale, but it wasn’t overboard on the crystal malt/caramel, so I found it rather enjoyable, nicely attenuated as well. Solid all around.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Draft at brewpub during RBSG 10. Pours a rich amber. Balanced aroma, similar to an amber ale, resiny, some caramel. Flavor follows, well balanced, very drinkable, similar to hoppy american ambers. Went nicely with my pizza.
