22oz bottle. Poured a golden color with a creamy medium sized white head. Aroma is pale malts, touch of spice. Flavor was light like a lager, corn notes, pale sweet malts, creamy overall. Drinkable, price was about right - so it was certainly worth checking out.

Bottle: Pours a clear deep bronze golden with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a sweet pale malty nose with some noble hops and a touch of light fruity esters. Starts with good fullness and clean sweetness with a touch of light caramel and earthy bitter balance before a drier, slightly warming bittersweet finish. True to style and fairly drinkable.

Strykzone (6720) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 4, 2011
Bomber. This poured with some copper hue and was clear. A decent head that was off white and the retention was ok. A fruit and spice aroma. Flavor also had nice fruit and it was well hopped with spicy floral hops. Some cinnamon and caramel made this a sweet beer but the hops were dry. Not a bad beer at all.

Cybercat (5121) - Georgia, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Pours a nice, if typical, clear amber with a fairly thick but not persistent white head. Malty aroma has an apple undertone, nothing special but still OK. Flavor, though, is quite nice, malty and fruity with a hint of hoppy bitterness. Texture is smooth, a little edgy and a little fizzy. Overall, not Heavy Seas’ best, but still worthy of a try, at least.

Draught at Whole Foods Devon: Aroma of malt, slight hops, and some corn. Poured amber in color with a small, creamy, dense, off-white head that lasted throughout. Clear. Slightly sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of malt, light lager yeast, and some hops. Medium body. Average texture. Malt, lager yeast, and light hop finish.

22 ounce bottle - $5.49 at Total Wine & More in Alpharetta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a clearish, golden-orange body with a sizable head, no more than a finger’s worth, and near white in color.

Smell: Grainy, sweetish notes with a slight grassy, hay-like hop hint and some detectable alcoholic sniffs. So far, not the best beer to honor the lead singer of the Monkees, I must say. You’d have to be a Daydream Believer to think this beer was shaping up to be something special.

Taste: Sweet, bready malts, a tad grainy and with a sugary bent to it, like a vending machine jumbo-sized honey bun. Brassy, grassy hops, moderately bitter. Hint of toasted corn cob. Some fairly astringent alcoholic around mid-palate and lasting beyond the drying finish. There’s not much to it, and, what’s there, well, isn’t all that good.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Slightly sticky.

Overall: Some beers can really hide their alcohol content quite well. That’s not the case here, sadly. In fact, I was rather surprised to see it listed as being only 7%. But, then again, this Mutiny Fleet series has been full of surprises!

Draught at Maddy’s, Washington. Clear golden with an off-white, ok lacings. Aroma moderate malty (caramel, toasted), light hoppy. Flavor medium sweet, light+ bitter. Medium body. Very drinkable.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - SEP 7, 2011
22oz bottle. Golden orange color, White head. Hightly active carbonation , rapidly cascading to the surface. Malt aroma, with fruit. Has hints of grain, corn, and a bit of straw. Tastes of a hearty, "high quality" malt liquor, with a dry malt flavor. Loads of cereal character in the creamy body. A touch of alcohol flavor as well. Finishes with a touch of grassy hops, but mostly cereal malt. Imperial Cream Ale.

Butters (4045) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 25, 2011
Clear golden pour with filmy white head. Not overly sweet corn aroma, and flavor has a bit more of the hop character to add balance. reminded me of some esl’s but much smoother and more complex flavor. bitterness from the hops comes out on the tail end. pretty tasty for what it was, but nothing that i’d seek out again.

22oz bottle. pours a clear gold with a medium, creamy, white head. nose has notes of vanilla, baking soda and pale malt. the flavor is lightly sweet with vanilla cake flavors. the abv does show up in the beginning and is quite astringent but goes away with time and the beer sweetens up some finishing enjoyable.
