COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The only thing we take more seriously than Mr. Huff’s head of hair is our beer: flavourful and complex. Mr. Huff is a 5.4% ABV, 40 IBU pale ale brewed using both American and UK hops, and a unique blend of 7 malts. Slightly sweet, with a medium body, and a flavorful and aromatic hop finish.

At $34 a case I expected so much more! This is ordinary, run-of-the-mill ,lawnmower beer suitable for a red Solo cup. Reminiscent of Genesee Cream Ale. Not offensive, but nothing to crow about. Oh how I wish I would have read the reviews here first!

AmEricanbrew (5792) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle.   Bright bronze color with ivory head. Subtle floral, herbal hop, sweet malt aromas. Light bodied with average co2. Toasted malt, caramel flavors with mild to medium bitterness--- nicely drying finish___not bad.

Homer321 (1852) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Nose is a moderate diacetyl, mostly bitter with some popcorn. This is just a train wreck of poor fermentation character and an overly bitter beer.

Mostly clear deap amber color with foamy white head. Light hop aroma, earthy, light dank, pale malt, not much. Malty, semisweet, light metallic notes, caramel notes, muted hops, mild bitterness.

Pours a deep rusty brown with a medium beige head, some light lacing. Aroma and Taste is mild toasted grains, caramel malt and mild earthy hops bitterness. A medium body palate with moderate carbonation. Finish same as taste. This seems more lager than pale ale. Overall an ok drinking beer.

5/30/14. Bottle drank out front given to me by Ken. I'd love to know what catches his eye that causes him to buy these no name nondescript beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bhensonb (10904) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle at West Coast Brew Fest 2014. Pours copper with a beige head. Roast malt with citrus for aroma. Med body. Flavor is like aroma. Finishes towards dry and bitter, but doesn’t quite get there.

nimbleprop (4756) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 15, 2014
12oz bottle pours a murky burnt, Texas orange with some frothy white head. Nose has a lot of citrus peel, some clear malt, a little bread crumb, some honey, a little corn, orange, lemon. Flavor has a strong citrus peel bitterness, some cardboard but not bad, some weak pine, soggy bread, stale cracker. Clean finish. More of an English take on a pale ale, and not superb, but not offensive either.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4895) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark orange-toffee color with a small foamy orange-tan head that left decent lacing. The aroma was tangy and citric with an underlying sweet and tart presence. The flavor was tart, tangy and chalky with a lemony note. Medium length finish. Light to medium body. Meh.

Amber color with an off-white head. Malty, nutty and balanced. Hops are not as strong through the finish as you would expect with the style.
