Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle. Poured clear dark golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted and produced good to good lacing. Moderate balance aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Moderate balanced flavor with medium balanced finish of moderate duration. The beer goes well with spicy soup.

Drake (8560) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA, opened 3/24/11. Pours a clear dark copper color with a thin head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of grainy malts with a toasty finish and some faint earthy hops. The taste is toffeeish malts, berry-like fruits, earthy hop finish. Medium bodied.

3fourths (8032) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 19, 2011
clear amber. mostly clean pale and caramel malt nose; slightly metallic but sterile notes at times; mostly sweetened caramel and fusel vanilla touches otherwise. light bodied, as expected, with chewy roundness mid-palate. low hop bitterness but has medium to low malt astringency and harshness. nutty, wet finish. it’s okay fresh, but it seems like after only weeks in the bottle it will be done for.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 6, 2011
Bottle. Pours with a clear brownish-orange body with a small, slightly off-white head that fades somewhat quickly. Aromas of nuts, lightly fruity (esters?), toasty and malt forward. Some cornbread. Lightly hoppy (herbal and grassy). Otherwise pretty clean. A bit sweet up front which slowly fades and finishes malty but dry. Toasty. The initial sweetness is a bit off putting. Crisp, no esters. Some minerality. Pretty clean. Dry, a bit thin, lively bubbles. No astringencies. Pretty decent overall, but nothing spectacular about this beer (for its style or in general).

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - MAR 28, 2011
Bottle. Rich amber beer with a cream colored head. Low malt and earthy aroma. Malt and light caramel flavor with mineral and earth. Medium bodied. Malt and mineral lingers with light caramel and spice.

DrSilverworm (6375) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 6, 2012
12oz bottle from my local Kroger. Bottled 8/18/12. Toasty caramel malts. Clear lighter brown color. Some bubbles on the side of the glass. Little greyish head. Moderate, soft carbonation, light dry texture. Sweet taste. Hint of honey. Decent amber lager, but doesn’t really do anything for me. Pretty much what I expected
