Drake (7950) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2011
12 ounce bottle from a local Kroger. Pours a clear amber color with a medium frothy head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted malts and bitter floral, spicy hops. The taste is caramel malts, some toastiness, bitter herbal hop notes. Lingering bitterness. Medium bodied. Decent, but fairly boring.

GT2 (7899) - Carlsbad, California, USA - OCT 6, 2012
355mL. Pours a super carbonated clear light orange. Small white foam. Nose is candied orange syrup, small perfume, wet cardboard. Taste is very sticky, boozy, sickly medicinal, some saltwater sweat. Palate is cereal stake grain like a malt liquor. Very poor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2011
12 oz. bottle from Capone’s, and I believe this is my 2011 maibock cherry popper. Dark straw pour with 3-finger fluffy white head. Nose is floral and earthy, with hopcitrus, apricotty fruit, definite noble hops. No transient hops in this one; no sir. Tastes earthy, rich, fruity, with a big hop element and some cloying sweetness. Smooth finish, and very good.

Cletus (6331) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Pours gold with a white head. Smells and tastes grainy with some tea hints on the finish.

Braudog (5493) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2011
Bottle. Textbook pour, golden orange, quite active, with a staunch but thin bright white topping of rocky foam. The aroma is, well, beery ... sweet and malty with a hint of citrus. The beer drinks with a rich texture, silky and smooth. A beautiful example of style, this quaffable beer has an evident alcoholic kick, but is sublimely refreshing with a mellow sweet character.

TheBeerGod (5053) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUL 9, 2011
Bottle. Orange-amber pour with a medium, frothy white head. Aroma is rather hoppy and floral with hints of biscuit, caramel, and spicy notes. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, spicy hops, biscuit, and grassy/herbal hops. Body is medium with a creamy, chewy carbonation. Finishes with more spicy and herbal hops, caramel, dried fruit, biscuit, and sweet malt.

DSG (5022) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 18, 2012
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Clear deep golden color with a medium white head. Aroma of nice herbal, piney and slightly floral hops and some malt. Flavor has light malty sweetness with some caramel notes, herbal hops and a bitter finish, a bit alcoholic. Medium-bodied. Not bad, quite refreshing even (it’s not easy to find refreshing Heller Bocks).
