lamas (1549) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 18, 2005
On tap. A very deep and hazy amber with a medium-sized tan head that lasts and lasts and leaves rings of lace. Citrusy aroma of grapefruits along with some caramel and pine. Medium-bodied and quite creamy. Very well-balanced taste. A sweet, almost nutty caramel and malty base with a very citrusy, hoppy, bitter and dry finish that lingers. Hints of alcohol at the end. Almost barley wine-ish. Solid effort.

hopscotch (10563) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2005
Draft... Very hazy, caramel-colored ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Decent retention. Light citrus nose with very light evergreen. Either my nose is dead or the beer has lost some hop "pop" with age. Moderately bitter and lightly tangy flavors laid upon a solid malt base. Caramel and pink grapefruit. Medium to full-bodied and velvety with lively carbonation. Finishes lightly bitter.

argo0 (13069) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Opaque dark red-brown body with off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, grapefruit, caramel. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, caramel, light lemon, pine. Medium body with some creaminess. Nothing unusual, but a very well done, nicely balanced beer.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 6, 2005
Draft - This style could easily have fallen under Best Bitter or IPA. Deep cloudy coppers and browns, creamy light tan head. The nose was an interesting mix of rich fruity hop esters, molasses, toffee brittle, and pineapple, with a very slight nutty tone. Flavor is front hop loaded, with more fruity English hops, some Americans ones definitely noted as well, and a light chocolate malt rounding it out for balance. 7.5% is undetectable. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, bittersweet finish. Congrats on # 200. A great session brew....
