thedm (5609) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 14, 2005
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of off-white colored mostly diminishing bubbles that left behind a fair lacing and a transparent amber brown colored softly carbonated body. The aroma was a simple mild malt hop one and the mouth feel was tingly fizzy and overly carbonated with a tingly finish that had a thin malt hop flavor that favored the hops. The overly carbonated mouth feel did me in on this one. Way too much of it.

hotstuff (4861) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 16, 2005
Draft at Founders BC. Small white head that mostly diminished, fine-small sized bubbles, sparse lacing, transparent, no visible carbonation, and a yellow gold hue. Aroma was almost non-existent but I did note some maltiness. Ditto for the flavor. Tingly mouthfeel. Light body. Just not much here with this brew.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2005
Tap at Founders. Tan color, white head. Faint flavors and nose of cookie dough and bread. Not a whole lot going on in this 3% abv ale although thirst quenching.

Did not know what to expect from this brew upon its serving. Noticing it was only a 3% abv, and noticing very little in its nose or look. Then after my first mouthfull I decided it didnt really serve much a point, except maybe to add dollars to the books, as it coulnt have cost that much to put together but still sold for the same price as the other pints. Anyways its another rating right?

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 31, 2005
Draft at Founders. Being 3%, im not sure what the purpose of this beer is. Its not very tasty and has no ABV. Amber color with a white head. Aroma is lacking but contains some light hops to it. Fairly watery and unimpressive.

Tmoney99 (13332) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2005
Draft at Founders. Poured a golden amber with average rocky white head. Aroma and flavor was a balance of light malt and hops. Light body with watery texture. Average brew from an above average brewer.

I don’t get it. At least low ABV beers I’ve had like some of the bitters in the UK or small beers at least tasted somewhat distinct. This beer was only offensive by it lack of anything substantive. I think this may be the same fluid they line sensory deprivation chambers with. I was unable to discern much in the way of hops or malt. It was, however, fairly carbonated.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 4, 2005
On tap at Founders. This has to be an April Fool’s Joke, right? Anyway, this beer is best described as a low ABV amber ale. Slightly hazy orange body, thin off-white head. Very light, grainy aroma that soon gave way to strong incense notes wafting in from a nearby table...the body was grainy, slightly fruity and cerealy, with light grapefruit/pine hops (again, probably of the Amarillo variety). Tart but watered-down feeling. Light palate, grassy. Not too bad, but pretty standard.
