hopscotch (10601) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2005
Draft... Clear, dark ruby ale with a small, creamy, white head. The nose is subtle chocolate, red wine and vanilla. Nicely balanced and a bit tangy. Nutty with chocolate and vineous notes. Medium-bodied and very lightly creamy with lively carbonation. Finishes creamy and barely bitter. Not much to it, really.

"pretty smooth, on par with Moose drool flavor-wise, but a little lighter in body, more like a Samuel Smith’s. A solid effort, but not worth going out of your way for."

Thank you to DrunkAsASkunk for this one. Pours deep dark brown,with a medium off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma of malt, corn flakes, almonds, cabernet, hops, and slight prunes. Tastes malty, with hints of brown sugar, toffee, almonds, caramel, and slight Coca-cola. Nice, smooth medium-bodied finish. I haven’t had a bad California beer yet.

phaleslu (9376) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Draft at Yard House. Pours a pretty much clear amber-tinted brown with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted malts, chocolate, brown sugar, and faint coffee. Flavor is the same but a tad better; sweet, malty, and toasty. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Solid brown ale. Nothing spectacular, just gets the job done.
