Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2009
Bottle from the Binny’s in Plainfield, IL: It poured a clear, deep golden body with a tall head that collapsed and vanished quickly, leaving a film and lots of lacework on the glass. It had an aroma of honey covered crusty white bread and a touch of pears. Medium-light bodied, it had a honmey and pale malt sweetness with a light citric tartness and a mild spiciness. The sturdy alcohol content remains well hidden until it hits the veins. Very drinkable.

33 cl bottle. Clear golden pour, white fluffy head. Spicy and honey aroma, a little citrusy and sweet fruity. Sweet and malty flavour, followed by alcoholic warmth and a medium-full body. Final feeling almost doughy

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 8, 2009
In the 750 mL flipcap bottle from Beertopia. Pours dark gold with a thick frothy white dense head. Has a yeasty ozone-like aroma! Extremely sweet like nectar water spiked with sugar and honey. This finishes surprisingly tart for such a sweet beer. Medium thick body with a very rich mouth feel for such a light-looking beer. Very palatable, but has some lingering alcohol heat in the back of the mouth.

Its aroma are fruity with some hint of oranges. Its taste is a nice blend of strong malts and the sweetness of fruits. It is very pleasant. Very good beer,

TheBeerGod (6010) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Bottle. Swing-top. Pours a golden blond. Short white head. Aroma is honey, sweet malts, light candied fruit, floral hops and light grainy notes. Taste echoes more honey and fruit, with fresh cut flowers, light spicy and floral hops, soft candy and grains. Light lemon as well. Body is soft with moderate carbonation. Not too off the mark for a BdG. Ends with more honey and sweet malts, light fruit notes, soft spice and floral hops. This was rather tasty and I nice gift from my friend Alan during his trip to NoVA.
