HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2012
12oz bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours a lovely clear copper with a lasting two-finger fluffy off-white head. Smells a bit like a amber ale / nutbrown cross - herbal, light roast, dry, mild alcohol, a bit of metal. Taste follows, more bitterness, no metal, the alcohol is there in the taste. Light body, a touch watery and astringent, mildly carbonated, with a medium earthy bitter finish. Not sure what this is, but it was well-made ... vienna? sure, why not.

Mora2000 (5893) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Thanks to Cavie for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a yellow-orange color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the grain and grass, with not too much else going on. The flavor is similar. The toffee and grain notes really stand out, with some grass from the hops thrown in. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bit of tea as well. Body is medium with a moderate carbonation. Finishes with more sweet malt, toasted dark bread, caramel, soft grass, and light spicy hops.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Bottle: Pours a nice orange copper color with a nice respectable head. The nose is fluffy and toasty with some crisp clean malts, ample biscuit and a light sweet underlying caramel note. Chewy mouthfeel with a nice moderate body and a clean crisp maltiness and lingering hop note in the finish. Very well put together and a balanced tail. Refreshing and big bodied all in one.
