VTHopHead (1505) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Draft at the brewpub - Poured a dark ruby red in color with almost no head and little other carbonation. Aroma was mild of malt and distinct of noble hops. Flavor was a little off balance to the hop bitter side, but who’s complaining. The finish was long and quite bitter. Very nice...

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2008 Cloudy ruby color with a thin white head. Appealing aroma of malt, caramel and subtle hops, slightly sour too. Delicious flavor of malt and caramel with some sourness. Bitter finish. Light body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. It’s a true red ale with it’s malty character and delicious caramel.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2004
Sampled both draught and bottled. Deep amber body and a soft, velvety off-white head. Aroma of fruity, toasted malts, dark maple syrup, and a touch of woody hops. Malty, bitter flavor with an odd calcium carbonate quality. Finishes fairly clean and bitter with very little cloying maltiness and a nice light smoky touch. Medium fullness on the palate.

Split a 22oz bottle with some friends from work, one that picked it up while in Vermont. Poured a pretty amber-red color with a small wispy off-white head. Aroma was solid caramel malts. Hops don’t linger in this one - it’s mostly malt. A lot more enjoyable than I expected.
