AgentAle (1528) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 5, 2015
Aroma is lightly roasty malts and a tad of caramel, not much else. Taste is pretty smooth toasted malts with a touch of creaminess. Light bland hops in transition. Pretty easy drinker. Appearance is a clear amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

Bottle from Dart at Stateline. Pours rather copper with a slight beigeish head. Aroma is a bit meh. Arguably itís malt. Near med body. Flavor is not so meh as the aroma, and the malt tries to be an alt - maybe itís getting there. But all the ingredients donít coalesce well for me. Finishes with a slight unpleasant flavor, but itís drinkable, and arguably fits the style.

BucannonXC5 (1423) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 5, 2014
Type: Draft Glass: 10-oz. tulip From: Great Basin Brewing Company in Reno, Nev. Price: $4.25 Purchased: Oct. 31, 2014 Consumed: Oct. 31, 2014 Misc.: N/A Poured a dark caramel, brown color with 1-to-2 fingers of khaki-white head. Light bubble streams coming up at spots. Spotty sporadic lacing on the sides of the glass. Average retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 3.75) Smelled pretty plain initially. Got German noble pilsner hops, not as good as a recent Stone beer I had with similar German noble hops. Light caramel, roasty nuts and toffee. (Smell - 3.25) Taste was much better than the nose, albeit less German pilsner hops and more roastiness. Also got caramel, roasted toffee, Octoberfest elements, plum, roasty nuts and bready malts. (Taste - 3.50) Medium body. Thin texture. Lively-to-fizzy carbonation. Abrupt finish. (Feel - 3.38) Just an average beer overall, not a great start or pick by me for Great Basin. Seemed to be a bit too cold for the style as well. (Overall - 3.38) 3.43 78 B-
