Tap at Fullsteam. Pours a clear amber. Webby lacing. Nose is odd but good- squashy noble style hops, rye, earthy bread. Taste is a bit sticky, spicy, rich and dense. Rustic and heavy. Clean. Quite hoppy with noble style hops. I like this one. IPA profile on a lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Draft at Brewvival 2012. Pours a clear copper with a large frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of toffee malts, nuts and caramel. The taste is grainy malts, stone fruits and caramel. Medium bodied. I could drink this by the gallon.

This one I’ve 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.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2012 Great beer. I love this lager because of its nice caramel flavors and hop flavor. I would recommend this to anyone.

Pours a rich, deep amber color with a substantial, creamy, medium-tan head. The aroma is faint but pleasant, with a combination of cereal grains, a light woodsy mustiness, and a little caramel sweetness. The flavor is much more pronounced, with characteristics of sweet brown bread, a little butterscotch, and a nice pine and floral hop bitterness. The fine, light carbonation is active yet unobtrusive, but it allows the bready sweetness to linger a bit more than I would have liked.

Growler from Sams Quik Stop in Durham, cloudy pour, earth aroma, slight twinge of hops. Smooth, not bad.

3/25/11. Growler courtesy mlunger12. Slightly hazy amber pour with a huge fluffy off-white head. Malty but slightly funky banana/bubblegum aroma. Big malty flavor with a hint of bubblegum. Hmmm.

On tap at Tyler’s 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.
