SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 20, 2006
On tap at the brewpub. Light copper amber in color with a thin off white head. Aroma is a sweet doughy caramel, but not strongly pronounced. Carbonation level is high making the beer have an unpleasanrt palate when coupled to the thin body. Drinkable, but not memorable.

12 oz Bottle via Arctic Liquors Beer of The Month Club. Pours a semi clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is subtle-a bit of toasted grain, some vanilla, and lager yeast. While I am not a fan of the style, this is one of the best i have tasted. It starts with some vanilla, toffee, toasted grains and there is even some fruity esters underneath, some apricot and melon. Light/medium body. Low/moderate carbonation. Very tastey and refreshing. A high quality craft beer that i could easily drink several of.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUL 22, 2006
I am beginning to think to myself as I look at their offerings and say, why did I drive all the way out here again? Reddish auburn coloring with a small fizzy white head. Lots of honey and caramel in the nose, but the palate is quite light in body, with a flavor that matches the nose to a t. Light, with some crisp acidity, that gives the after palate a nice little bite. An interesting beer, but not something to write home about.

Draught. Pours brassy-copper with a white film and lined lacing. Aroma is floral hop and malt (grain, meal) and yeast (dough, sweat). Moderately acidic and bitter malty grain flavor, hay and sweet yeast, grassy. Light bodied and chalky palate.

schwaiger (90) - Laramie, Wyoming, USA - APR 27, 2006
12 oz bottle. Pours a true amber with a quickly diminishing white head. Well-balanced sweet and bitter notes with a definite presence of lemon poppyseed muffins. Nice, crisp brew with a creamy, citrus finish.

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - MAR 8, 2006
An amber lager with a delightful blend of vanilla and honey to make it shockingly more pleasant than the average beverage labeled as a lager.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 12, 2006
Had this at the brewery. Beer poured a clear, light-amber color with a small, fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing head that left behind nice lacing. The aroma was fair: lightly malty with notes of roasted grain and caramel, lightly hoppy with a note of pine and lighty dressed up with miscellaneous notes of vanilla and honey. The flavor was lightly sweet with a trace of bitterness that had an average-length, lightly bitter finish. The body was light-to-medium, the texture was watery and the carbonation was fizzy. There was also a trace of alcohol at the end. Not a very engaging brew.
