This one’s alright. I can’t stand their labeling, but the beer itself was decent. A little sub-par on all sides, but easily drinkable. It’s a little better than their other beers, but not to my liking.

Gorgeous auburn amber hue. Minimal head. Like VENOM says, this beers character comes out when it warms up. Very dry and bland when cold. Grain, toffee, fruit come out when it warms up. I definately enjoy this brew, very smooth.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 23, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Re-rate 8/23/02: Stale malty aroma (this is a new bottle), weak malty taste, ends watery and with little fanfare. -0.7 from last time. 9/15/01 Very light tasting. I wish there was more bite to it.

Pleasant caramel and roasted malt…Elegant flowers and spices…A bit too quiet though…

Amber ale with a caramelly accent. I have to say, after Double Bag, I really don’t want these guys to shoot for ’smooth’.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 11, 2001
Minimal head, some lace and a nice dark color, clear with a clean nose that hints of the malt, the top light and fresh. There is after setting/resting for a few minutes, a decent hop bite that starts a bit sweet.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 4, 2001
First off ’Do Not Drink Cold’. Cold this brew is crisp and dry with minimal flavors but hops. Warm this brew is a divine meld of nutty flavors with some toffee as well. Was a little creamier and sugary once warmer. A very nice seasonal.

Sammys (428) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 14, 2001
I was expecting somewhat of an Oktoberfest, but the malt was certainly not up to par for that style. In any case, this isn’t advertised as a fest, so that can certainly be forgiven. The somewhat dark color surprises the drinker with its pronounced smoothness and lack of any outstanding maltines s or hoppiness. I can see this being a ’bridge’ beer for some people.

canary dog (655) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - AUG 30, 2001
Very little aroma. Copper body, low head. Feels light, but almost silky in the mouth. As advertised, it has a very smooth, uncomplicated finish. Malts are there, along with hops, but they are unusually non-intrusive. A dark colored, light bodied beer. Perfect for getting you primed for the heavy winter ales to come.

Kaya161 (1128) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 5, 2000
The label says that this beer is brewed with all the malt and hop varities that go into their other beers. What results is a slightly dark, slightly malt balanced, and incredibly smooth ale.
