Poured a slightly cloudy copper yellow with hardly a head. Slight hop aroma with a hint of citrus. Nice crisp hop bite with a long slightly bitter finish in the back of the throat that mellowed for awhile. A nice refreshing beer, worth a try

This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again.

Copper color with small beige head.Mildy hopped with light spice flavor. Thinner body. That’s all I remember about this beer, nothing special here.

jcwattsrugger (11223) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUL 7, 2007
12oz bottle-pours an off white head and copper color with effervescence. Aroma is mild medium fruit, some spice. Taste is medium fruit, some spice/earthy/wood-hops-peppery, medium malt-a bit of molasses. Occasional. OK carbonation.

alexanderj (3336) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JUN 12, 2007
Bottle poured a light copper, almost orange. Small to medium white head. Aroma of caramel malt, spice, slightly sweet and some hints of floral. Flavor was pretty bland and forgettable. A subdued caramel malt presence; a little bready and not much else. Hop finish was barely detectable. Deserves the overall poor rating; another weak before from geary’s.

Braudog (5902) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Bottle: Poured completely still, bronze, with just a thin fizzy of a head. Nice aroma of hops, strawberries, bit of floral goodness. Also nicely flavored -- lightly sweet malt, lightly mixed with a hint of spicy hops, and again with an almost strawberry note, this is a nice flavorful brew. (#2969, 6/9/2007)

Robe dorée aux reflets cuivrés très claire surmontée d’une mouss eblanche épaisse qui s’estompe. Arômes d’alcool, de houblon et de métal. Saveurs de houblon amérisant, de métal et de malt caramélisé.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - MAY 23, 2007
12 oz bottle courtesy of OhioDad...Thank you Scott! Poured a light copper color. I loved the smell. Strong aroma of spice, caramel, bread and flowers! Taste was okay. Some spice, malts, hops, maybe a bit of caramel. Certainly drinkable. Perhaps better paired with a good meal, as opposed to alone...

Clear amber body with a medium creamy off-white head. Sweet floral hops aroma with a bit of caramel. Sweet floral hops flavor, some caramel and a touch of vanilla.

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 16, 2007
Bottle courtesy of Northyorksammy: Poured a light orangey color ale with a medium foamy head with limited retention. Aroma of sweet malt and light hops is mostly boring. Taste is a mix between some sweet malt and light English hops. Body is a bout average with some average carbonation. I was quite surprise that this is being classified as an IPA and could not have guess by drinking this beer.
