UPDATED: FEB 28, 2013 On tap at Mellow mushroom. Appearance of clear red, small head. Aroma isnít pleasant. Donít know what to describe in it. It wasnít a fresh smell. Taste isnít really crisp. I donít think That itís a clear character. I like Ghost river, but not this beer. Iíll give it another try to see if I got a bad one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Leighton (18735) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle at the hotel in Natchez, MS - picked up at the Walgreens in West Memphis. Pours clear reddish gold with a fizzy, off-white head. Earthy and leafy hops in the nose, some toasted grains. Light sweet flavour with grainy malts, more earthy and leafy notes, some orange peel, leathery berries. Light to medium bodied with average, fizzy carbonation. OK balance in the finish, with further grains, lightly toasted bread, some toffee. Decent stuff overall.

Pours a light amber with a thin white head. Aroma is light amber and floral hops. Flavor is a more bland amber. Kind of a plain, boring amber. Just ok.

EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - FEB 18, 2016
The beer pours a clear copper color with a medium-sized cream-colored head. The aroma blends cereal malt,, toasted malt, hay, caramel, and a subtle cocoa note, and the taste is slightly bitter and slightly sweet with the dominant flavors being earthy and caramel. The aftertaste is quite malty with some hop flavor lingering. The mouthfeel combines a medium-light body, light carbonation, and a slick texture.
