Pretty tasty for style. Lots of interesting malt in here that comes through with nice aromas despite steaming. Medium thick consistency. Light hops in finish with a little citrus zest. Tap at Churchkey.

This one Iíve had a few times. Clean coppery pour with one finger of sandstone head. Nose is slightly grainy with bready notes and a light sweetness balanced by an herbal hop character. Slightly vegetal. Bready flavor with an upfront herbal hop character with notes of hay and sweet toasted grain.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 27, 2010
On tap at Tylerís, Durham. A dark than expected pour, with an abundant carbonation and a thick looking body. Nose was fairly hoppy and aromatic, and overall I found it a very nice rendition of the style, more assertive and with more character than anticipated.

TURDFERGUSON (3961) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2010 Growler from Weaver Street Market, Carrboro. Cap was really difficult to get off, I almost called the owner to ask if their was a special trick. Luckily, Ethan was around and could get it. Pours a relatively translucent golden amber with little a foamy white head that fades leaving a solid white lace around my fullsteam jar with a handle. Carbonation seemed low on my first pour, but I got much more of a head (to begin with) and it feels more carbonated overall now. Aroma of caramel malts, banana bread, light menthol, light hops. Slightly sweet, mostly bitter finish.

maxwelldeux (3688) - Everett, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Draught. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate white head. I get almost no nose on this. Despite that, it was surprisingly flavorful, with a kick of some spice in there that I canít quite place. I liked it more than I thought I would.

On tap at Tylerís in Durham, listed as "Carolina Common." Pours clear golden-copper in color with a small whitish head and some lacing. The aroma is decent, with biscuit malt evident, caramel, and herbal hop notes. The flavor is more or less standard California Common, with caramel, biscuit, and earthy hops that lend some bitterness. A bit sweet if anything. Medium-bodied with average carbonation, the expected mouthfeel pretty much. A good beer; certainly better than average for the style.

On tap. Copper pour with a thin off white head. Scent is sweet and bready. Taste is bready with herbs.

Gold pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is toast and grassy hops. Flavor is much of the same. Finish is like a "clean hippy"

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 8, 2010
On tap at the Busy Bee in Raleigh. Pours light clear amber with small foamy white head. Not a huge amount of carbonation here. Nose is earthy, some mild bitter hops, caramel and bread. Tastes even more earthy with a surprisingly bitter kick at the end.
