JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2008
12 oz bottle. Deep amber brown beer. Aroma is quite sweet and fresh. Nice breadiness with a lot of caramelly character. A hint of brown sugar and a lingering doughy maltiness. Nice sweetness, good rich palate with even more toastiness on the back. A bit of sweet plumminess and a clean yeast profile. Nice brew.

JorisPPattyn (7929) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2012
Head gone; foxy-amber beer. Buttery smell, cookies, oxydation - old sample? Buttery, clearly oxydated beer. Cake, butterscotch and sweet - even syrupy. Slick, oily, medium bodied and tired. Bad sample, I fear.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2008
Bottle. Pours coppery with off-white head. Aroma is caramel malt, berries, mild hops, and some plasticy notes. Tastes malty, with berry-like fruit flavors coupled with hopcitrus. Medium palate.

Ughsmash (7136) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 20, 2007
Bottled, first week of February. Poured clear, deeper orange with a short cap of yellowy-beige head. The aroma picked up sweet toasted caramel and sour cherry skins.. not a good sign. The flavor had some nice toasted caramel and darker fruit notes, but held onto those sour cherries (moreso on the back-end).. grainy dark fruits, light herbal bitterness, and cherries on the grainy finish. Medium-bodied and likely infected, but the nice malt backbone made it somewhat enjoyable on the palate in spite of the sourness.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 15, 2003
Dark amber brwon colored with a thin frothy head. Aroma of an American standard with more malt and some roasted notes. Thick with a sweet caramel palate and an earthy finish, like freshly mowed grass. Pretty complex and very smooth, fulfilling, and drinkable. One of Lakefront's best that I've had.
