badgerben (4391) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2004
Brazen gold color with a nice frothy head. Hay bail aroma. Matly taste with a fair hit of grass and cider. A dash of spice on the end. Given the rates, I was expecting less; it’s not too bad.

willblake (2647) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - SEP 2, 2004
09.02.04 750ml bottle. Pours a glowing, golden, yellow-gold with ample, fizzy head that settles and lasts. Aroma is fresh, lively, and barny. Some light vinous notes, pear. Nice and inviting but a hint of something plastic. Flavor is mild and grassy. Slight oxidation in this bottle, I think. Quite malty for a blonde, but the flavor leaves the party just before it’s over. A nice quencher; good with mild foods.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 29, 2004
Appearance: cloudy, and peachy in color, with a slim white head. Aroma: clean and spare, showing off shades of citrus and spice, unfolding larger, until I regret my initial judgement and admire the floral notes, the connamon, and orange, quite nice, indeed. Taste: huge citrus on the palate right away, yeasty, full citric quality. Medium body, nice finish, good-enough texture. I can dig this brew, though it doesn’t wow me, nor is it designed to...these are meant to be simple, table beers, if I’ve got it right, and it matches that description ably. A nice thing to whet the whistle and wash down dinner, a good thing to pass down the gullet easily, if it’s affordable.

radiomgb (2235) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2004
Hazy golden colour, small white head. Aroma of pears, yeast and bready malt. Flavour was of pears, peaches, musty yeast, spices and some sugar. Medium body and carbonation. Finishes slightly spicy with a mild bitterness.

SilkTork (5187) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2004
Bottle. After the delights of yesterdays Gayant La Goudale this has come as a huge disappointment. Metallic and cardboardy. Thin and unpleasant mouthfeel. I had somehow got the impression that this had the reputation of being a decent beer. I must have confused it with something else. This just tasted like a stale beer. Rather unpleasant. Certainly way below average - almost undrinkable. Best before date is next year. This is obviously a beer to drink as fresh as possible.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2004
Hmmm, some nuttiness, nice malt and that typical BdG hop caramelly twang. But thin, watery in texture. Not "country" enough if that makes sense.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2004
Golden with nice white head. Fruity and sweet with notes of bread, vanilla and alcohol. Pleasent mouthfeel.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 29, 2004
Hazy straw colored with average carbonation for the style & note well retentive, light lacing. The aroma is funky with dusty barn, some caramelized wort and aged earthy hops. The flavor has a light sweetness without any of the gueuze like smells. A scosh of caramel & bread; molasses. Finishes balanced, not too complex.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 22, 2004
Notes of pears, apple and alcohol in the nose; flavor is oaky, sour, and perfumey, and includes some medicine/band-aid; slightly sour. Definitly different. Thanks Sham & Bück Dich!

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 21, 2004
Amber gold pour with a light film of head and very nice lacing. Funky aromas, slightly sour. Musky and cobwebby. Lemons and other citrus. Flavor is fruity and sour. Citrus hops arise. Acidic. Some spices. Dry dusty palate that finishes sour
