Michael Jackson 500 Classic Brews

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2004
Amber red pour. Nice eggshell white head that dissapates quickly. The lacing is so so. Floral hops, a bit grassy. Some malts in the nose. Mostly caramel. Not much. The flavor is primarily composed of bitter hops and tangy malts. Some spices make themselves known. Smooth palate and rich body and finishes with a nice touch of hops; both bitter and floral.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 1, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2006 Bottle. Nice copper/red color, bright and fiery. Good white head, plenty of lacing. Smells of lightly sweet caramel and toffee, mildly burnt barley, and grassy, herbal hops, moderately spicy. Flavor is spicy, dry, not watery. Good caramel sweetness in moderation, just enough to balance, but the hops really add the flavor here, spicy, lightly fruity. Very drinkable. Medium body, light carbonation.

Crockett (1005) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2004
Bottle. Pours anber, burnt butter quick disipating head. Sweet lightly toasted malt aroma. Lightly bitter and herbacious. Soft berry notes and a touch of brewerís caramel. Good hop bitters and the malts are flavourful and even. Hop finish. Quality session ale.

mustang3 (254) - Whitby, CANADA - MAY 22, 2004
Balance is probably the best way to describe this beer. Pours a nice auburn colour with a sweet aroma. Taste begins nice and malty and then the hops assert themselves on the finish. A very solid beer.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2004
Body is a darker amber colour that is fairly transpatrent. Aroma is toffee sweetness with some hoppy notes. This beer tastes like a well balanced mixture of hops and sweet malty characters. Iím really glad I finally got to try this one!

madquacker (1030) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2004
A solid copper colour with a loose frothy head. A beaut balance of malt up front with lasting balanced hops at the end. One of the best English ales.

TheBeerGod (5183) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2004
POurs a reddish amber with a small white head. Aroma is caramel and malt. Sweet aroma! The taste is more malt, less caramel and a splash of hops. The hops are present enough to let you know they are there but donít really have a lot to until the finish. Not too bad.

UNCCTF (477) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 19, 2004
On tap. Poured a clear amber coloring with practically no head. This one had a very bready flavor with an ever-so-slightly hoppy finish. Fullers can do way better than this.
