Bonster (182) - Jersey Shore, New Jersey, USA - FEB 20, 2010
Shared a bottle before its release at the store with my beer guy.Boring clear amber with minimal head and lazy lacing. Bread and touch of hops in finish. Not very flavorful. May have to re-rate at some point. Boring.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - FEB 20, 2010
Poured a medium amber hue with a thick white head that reduced to about a half inch. Aroma had a strong malt presence with mainly caramel notes but also had some bread and nut notes to it as well. A slight floral presence balanced out the malt. Flavor had a little more of a bread note then what i got from the aroma. Hops were mildly floral in the finish. Moderate plate. Nice beer.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - FEB 20, 2010
Bottle from kegs & Barrels in Plano, TX. Pours a nice looking clear copper with fizzy off-white head. Aroma is nutty with a bit of pecan shell, light toast. Flavor is the same with signs of dirty hop. Mouth feel is light body with high carbonation. Overall, I’d drink it but wouldn’t be a first choice.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 19, 2010
Bottled. Poured medium amber with a short, easily-resuscitated off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet caramel and toffee notes with hints of molasses and vanilla.. dry, toasted grassy hops around.. I enjoyed the yeast they used in here. The flavor found more of the sweet caramel and molasses at the core.. bright earthy hoppage and vanilla surrounded.. light peppery yeast laced throughout.. spicy on the finish, picking up touches of tobacco and peppery notes. Light-medium bodied with at least moderate carbonation on the palate.. spicy with a solid flow across the palate.. well done.

MrBunn (2727) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2010
Bottle. Sudsy head over a golden body with aromas of grass, lemon, some faint honey and a little dough. This is pretty light on the palate, with crisp grass and lemon and a bready malt presence. Pretty decent for the style.

DrnkMcDermott (2997) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2010
12 oz. bottle, $9/sixpack at Binny’s. Sweet, rich malty smell under the cap. Pours amber with a yellowing head that doesn’t fill up half the glass like other beers; or maybe my glass is finally "beer clean." Smell from glass is of a bit of caramel malt, Hops are just slightly flowery here, nice. Taste is quite tickly. Some spices or even herbs; they don’t say any of those were added, so presumably from hops and the ferment. More interesting version of a Vienna. Bubbly carbonation all the way through, and a bit of lace on the sides of the glass.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - FEB 18, 2010
12oz bottle, pours dark amber with a one finger off-white/light tan head that reduces to a small ring and doesn’t leave much lacing. Aroma is mild but contians caramel malt, bready, a little yeasty, some cereal and grains. Flavor is caramel malt, a little sweet, with some mild hop bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is oily, medium bodied, clean finish. This is pretty good for the style, a bit better than Yuengling, but for a price. I’d like to try Brooklyn Lager to compare.
