i had big hopes for this one. Pours a light brown color with a nice white head. Aromas of hops, caramel and cardboard. Bitter at first then quickly becomes watery. Some noticeable hops throughout. Overall bland and boring.

Hazy amber. Thin head. Balanced character. Light caramel and earth. Vague all round. Moderate bitterness. Very middle of the road character, just not that interesting.

Pours golden with a frothy head. Bitter malts on the aroma and flavour, more on the hoppy side. Not bad.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2010
Bottle at PPRBSG 09. Pours a light golden mostly clear with a nice fluffy white head. Aroma is toasted malts, herbal hops some light grass and ok fruity esters. Flavor is earth, fresh toasted malts, pale malt, light solvent ester as it warms, grassy herbal and floral hops with a light bitterness in the end. Mostly clean.

1 litre bottle. Pours golden with frothy white head which lasts the length of the glass. Taste was bitter with mild hoppyness. A very nice example of the Bitter style.

1L brown swingtop. Golden colour with a fine haze. Medium sized soapy head with some clinging lacing. Aroma has a whiff of light apple, lemon, some straw notes. Flavour has caramel accents, grains, some grassy hops. Citrusy aftertaste with mild leafy hops, light bitterness. Light body, mild carbonation. Likable, sessionalble, straightforward.

DuffMan (6670) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 18, 2009
Big 1L swingtop shared with Parksy. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with an average white head. Grainy aroma with soft grassy notes and fruity perfume, reminding me a little of orange blossom. This delicate nuance was lost after the beer rested however. Flavour was of pale malts with a kiss of fruity hops and low bitterness. More like a golden ale IMHO.

presario (4611) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 7, 2009
1L bottle after enjoying the Stamps Labour Day blowout victory over Edmonton. Thick foam on hazy dark amber. Very light fruit aroma; apricot? Good bitterness and a strong apricot character. Palate leaves me looking for more but I like the lingering bitter ghost.
