DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2007
Bottle from Lou18 via Mystery Swap 2.0. Pours turbid deep coppery/brownish with a big, fluffy, off-white head. The head is louder than a two-bit whore who’s just been stiffed. The aroma is caramel malty, with some citrus (orange, tangerine), hops, and slight spicy notes. The flavor is caramel malty with a solid hop bill, mid-palate mango, tangerine, and black pepper, and some finishing cognacy notes. Very complex in flavor and aroma, with an extremely lively, well balanced fruity and hoppy palate that provided some aromas and flavor hints that I seldom see in lagers, but would like to see more of.

j12601 (9565) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 28, 2009
On tap at the Peekskill Brewery. Pours a clear brownish amber with a light tan head. Aromas of toast, and a hint of sweet malt. Mouthfeel is medium and just about empty. Light bitter finish. Essentially an unremarkable lager… I didn’t find anything in here that would make me want to drink this again, but it wasn’t bad. It just didn’t do anything

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2009
Tap at Barcade. Deep amber pour. The nose is quite clean with a touch of light caramel and toasted malt. A little bit cereally with an unusual fruitiness on the back that seems to be malt derived. It’s fairly strange, but pretty tasty.

vtafro (6731) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2009
Draft @ the nearby pub. Nothing special here, brown pour with some head. Was a better choice than the normal macros, but not by a lot. Some malt flavors and smooth texture.

ben4321 (5775) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Location: Sampled at the NY Brewfest on Governor’s Island, 6/19/10

Aroma: The nose is mostly toasted and cereal malts
Appearance: Pours a hazy, dark reddish color with a fluffy head
Flavor: The flavor is pretty good, a nice cereal/grain feel to it with just a touch of hops
Palate: The body drinks really nicely, with a solid mouthfeel
Overall Impression: Overall, I thought this was a pretty good beer. A nice looking amber beer with a good flavor and a nice mouthfeel. Solid and enjoyable. I liked both of the Defiant beers that I tried at the festival.
