Bottle purchased at brewery. Slight grainy, toasted, cereal-like aroma. Maybe a touch of european hops. Copper color that is transparent with a off-white/yellow head. Very cereal-like and plenty of toasted malts in this. Sweet notes are also present to start. Spritzy carbonation with a touch of metallic notes to finish. Toasty and bland.

On tap at brewery. Tasted several of the offerings here and enjoyed them all but cannot remember any specifics. It’s always good to get fresh beer. Hopefully I can get myself back there to gather better rating info.

This amber poured light brown with notes of ligh fruit and some sweet malt. It goes into a bit of a smooth flavor but it seems to be laclking or missing. The finish is clean.

Tap @ Publick House. Pours a lighter amber with a quickly disappearing head. Nose is musty, apples that have been peeled a little while ago. Not altogether a bad thing though. Taste is thin with an appley finish. Pretty much no hops in this one and the malt is fairly thin. Not bad, but not pining away to have another.

aracauna (3501) - Georgia, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Pours a clear amber, with agood head. The aroma is slight caramel malt and little else. Nicely balanced carbonation tingles the tongue and there’s a light maltiness in the flavor, but there’s not a whole lot else going on. Very drinkable, though.

hopdog (11459) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2006
22oz bottle acquired in trade with ppoitras (thanks!). This one initially poured all head, and I mean all head. Finally settled down to a medium amber color. Aromas of grain, toasted malts, light caramel, and yeast. Tastes of caramel, grain and light citrus and spicy. Tastes and body both thin and watery.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Pours an orangey color. Taste is somewhat spicey with a slightly bitter finish. Not as good as their kolsch or APA, but still worth a try.
