Lukaduke (1735) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Pours a golden color with a very minimal head slightly fishy earthy aroma mixed with a bit of fruit. Flavors are crisp and somewhat complex. Starts with a nice malty raw honey sweetness that lingers into a bitter citrus finish.

drowland (5953) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JAN 29, 2012
1/29/12. As I rise from my humble slumber upon my chaise whilst enjoying the finest in live entertainment, I spotteth this gem of a brew sloshing abouts in minest box chiller, kept cold by large blocks of the finest ice being hand fanned by lowly paid children. As I poppeth the cap dorned upon the top of this yee bottle, I see clean, white mist arising from the bottle like the pale ghost of my long lost sister, who died long ago of syphilis contracted from the dirtiest of Scottish merry men. The beer poureth smooth and clear light amber with a billowing, fluffy off-white head like a dirtied wig of yore worn thin by the longest of governmental disputed meetings. Disappointing, plain aroma, much like my sissy of a son who doth not fight the knights or ride thee away on a knighted horse. Nare a hint of anything worth expunging. A slightly tart flavor of fresh green apples picked by the finest of slaves ejaculates across my tongue followed immediately by dirt from the gardens and the slighest hint of sweet caramels my grandiest of mama’s used to procure from the shops in London when I was a child. Doth meh.

not great choppin’ wood. Merv wouldn’t drink this choppen wood. fucken hell.

PorterPounder (5192) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl. - New Leaf Market - 11.2 oz bottle. Light copper pour, little to no head. Pleasant nutty aroma, hint of perfume. Flavor is more sweet than bitter, pick up some brief vanilla and butterscotch notes, just a touch of fruitiness - apricots come to mind. Smooth, clean mouthfeel. Not bad.

Aurelius (3903) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2012
Quickly dissipating, slightly perfumy and eggy aroma. Tawny, clear brew with a small head. Dopey label. Sweetish, modestly bitter and woody. Woody and a bit tinny in the finish. Medium to medium light body. New Leaf Market.

will1 (140) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2011
Light brown oaky colour, very slight yeast haze. Malty aroma with slight floral hoppiness. Not very bitter but well balanced grainy, slightly yeasty flavour. Very drinkable, which is just as well as I have a case full.
