theisti (3185) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - DEC 29, 2011
Pint can courtesy of BVC. The pour is hazed orange copper, with a firm two inch tan head. The head falls with some splotchy lacing. The beer is visibly un-filtered looking. The aroma is fresh malt grain, light apple fruit sweetness, touch of nut and caramel behind that. The taste is cracker malt, some pleasant grassiness and a bit of a grain harshness to the finish. The finish also has some generic hop bitterness. The finish is dry and earthy, which extenuates the bitterness further. The palate light to medium bodied, un filtered mouth feel, and the dry earthy bitter finish. Easy enough to drink. Thanks for sending this my way, Brandon!

beerbill (3331) - Laurel, New York, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Pint can courtesy of a trade with riversideAK. Pours a cloudy amber with a moderate off-white head that fades to a ring by the second sips and leaves light lace. Pleasant aroma of malt along with a bit of caramel. The flavor is malt and begins drying out on the palate almost immediately. The dryness continues leading to a dry finish with moderate bitterness. The bitterness lingers at the back of the throat briefly beyond the swallow. Medium bodied.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 22, 2011
Can:   Heavy amber, thick and hazy, moderate to large frothy off-white head, very nice lacing.   Malty nose, sweet breadiness, subtle earthiness and grains.   Certainly malty, but not heavy.   Also seems a little more earthy/soily than I prefer.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Feels smooth, but its not heavy.   Mild sweet grainy finish.   Not very bright overall.   Meh, not bad but not terribly interesting either.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Browned bronze body with decent head. This one straddles the American Amber / British Bitter line. Light to medium malt backbone with a pleasantly balanced bitter hoppiness in aroma and flavor. A nice medley of hops--C-hops with perhaps some Simcoe or Ahatnum mixed in. Quite sessionable.

bhensonb (10767) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Pint can from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy, nay murky, amber brown with a creamy beige head. Iím getting light cat pee aroma. Med body. Almost. It is resin/citrus followed by mild roast malt. It is nearly astringent. Pretty nice stuff.

riversideAK (5585) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Big caramel malty nose, some dough, toasted brown bread, and floral peppery hop bite as well. Pours dark amber, nice creamy head and great lace, somewhat hazy. Flavors of toasted brown bread, caramel, and a nice blast of floral hop bitterness. Becomes a little peppery spicy. Decent stuff.

16 oz can. Pours a murky darkcamber with a dense and creamy tan head. Big sweet malty orange and caramel nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty nutty caramel mid palate with a long resiny finish. Not at all bad. Very cool looking old school can

boFNjackson (4101) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Poured from a can at Hilliardís grand opening party... Moderate carbonation with a medium body. Faint hop bitterness but otherwise malt forward with some biscuity grains and fruity yeast esters that make it somewhat worth it.
