eaglefan538 (2897) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - FEB 20, 2009
On draft at the Lancaster location. Pour was amber colored, pretty clear body, thin white to peachy-off white colored head, some lacing, but a tad under par for the style. The aroma was wheaty malts with some candi sugar type fruitiness. The flavor was yeasty and bready sweet candi sugar malts, lighter fruits, slight alcohol heat. The mouthfeel was lighter than expected, seemed to have a bitter bite beyond the yeast, some gentle hopping, the wheat malts, almost a rye-like character?

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2006
Pours a medium, dark amber/brown color body with a small beige head. The aroma was sweet malts and raisins. Flavor was sweet malt, brown sugar, bread, and raisins. Seemed to get sweeter as it breathed. By the time I got about halfay through the glass it was becoming too sweet and less enjoyable. Not very impressed.

desurfer (1219) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2006
Pours a moderate reddish brown with little head. Aroma is malty and fruity. Flavor is very sweet, with lots of breadiness and some yeast character. There’s not much hoppiness present. The palate is too thin. Overall, this is overly sweet and watery, and although fairly tasty, it’s just not all that memorable.
