Homer321 (4316) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2016
Draft at source. Nose of light toffee and bread crust but both very faint. Deep red pour, crystal clear. Off white head laces well. Breast malt presence with some honey. Moderate hop peppery flavors mid palate through the finish. Solid but doesn’t have a lot of complexity.

freekyp (1944) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2015
A very earthy version of a bock with some powdery chocolate character and very littel maltiness. This one came across like an average brown ale excepting the copper penny noble twang finish.

Pailhead (6426) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 13, 2015
On tap: The aroma is lightly nutty, grain, and a hint of chocolate. It’s a transparent orangish-brown with a small beige head that fades to a thick film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of light-moderate caramel and light chocolate. The finish has a light nuttiness. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.
