douglas88 (8166) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 22, 2009
Bottle form the Utah Stat Store. Pours a dark amber color with a small white head. The aroma is mostly lots of toasted malts, some light fruits. A sweet nutty flavor, lots of malts, toasted flavors, some berries also. Very smooth and full flavored.

Ibrew2or3 (8040) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2008
Courtesy of Degarth. Pours clear deep copper nearing amber with thin tan head. Mild aroma with sweet malts and roasted malts getting together for a semi sweet malty nose. Also I seem to be smelling some pale to grainy to biscuit malts. The body is a bit thin with sweet malts, caramel, mild dark fruity esters and a base of molasses in the background. Loved the aroma albeit it was too light.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Pours with a small, off-white head covering a clear, lightish brown body. Suprisingly nice aroma of fruit, spices, maybe some light pineapple and candied yam esters; its very different. Body is a bit thin, but taste is good with fruity and wheaty notes. Slightly nutty finish. Watery mouthfeel comes with the thin body. A better beer than I was expecting.

after4ever (7487) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2007
12-oz. Pours a deep ruby-tinged brown. Thin white head that falls quickly to a ring of foam. Hollow nose, a little bit of bread there, maybe a whisper of caramel, but maybe not. This beer would clearly be a lot more comfortable if you didn’t notice it had stopped by. Maybe it’s going to ask you for money later. Very mild attack; thin body, light carb, very little flavor--just some weak caramel malt and then some bready yeasty aftertaste (that’s right, aftertaste, not finish). These guys let the sales success of their amber get in the way of too many of their specials--they mild everything down until there’s nothing left. Blah.

Ernest (7247) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 20, 2007
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain/bread, caramel, nuts), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with light notes of alcohol, orange peel, and honey. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Dunkel or bock? I’d call it the latter, personally. Let’s get one thing straight upfront: I’ve never been a fan of Full Sail, so I didn’t expect much from this one. Not that this is anything world-beating, but it’s quite nice. A bit on the sweet side, yes, but clean, with both a nice malt and hop character. The average score so far (3.0) proves once again that lagers just don’t get enough love here. Pity that.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Bottle sampled on 2/13/07: Pours a clear copper bronze with a thin, spotty-lacing off-white head. Sweet, lightly caramel malty aroma has some toasty grainy notes and lager yeast. Body starts fairly full and slightly caramely sweet with some earthy pale malty notes and lager yeasty presence. True to style, but pretty bland.

PorterPounder (7121) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2007
Tallahassee, Fl - Leon Pub - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, soft, silky white head. Fresh lake water aroma, hint of caramel. Sweet nutty flavor with lots of caramel accents. Thickish mouthfeel. Finish is a bit on the muddled side. Decent.

radagast83 (7081) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAR 13, 2010
Sampled from a 12 oz bottle. Overall I was more impressed with this beer than I was first expecting. Pours a amber color, small mostly white head. Aroma is a bit grassy, with touches of grains. A very clean beer, without any offensive touches to it. Not bad.
