Lubiere (10285) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2010
A dark amber lager with a thin off white head. A light nutty herbal aroma, again, a bit grainy and light caramel notes. In mouth, a smooth lightly sweetish malt, with mineral notes, very nutty and grassy, medium bodied. Tasted at CNY brewfest, Feb. 6 2010.

hopscotch (9364) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2010
Bottle… Mostly clear amber lager with orange highlights and a small, creamy, off-white head. Good, tight retention. The aroma offers lots of Munich malt and a moderate amount of chocolate malt. Also a bit nutty and biscuity. Medium-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. The flavor has some nice toasted malt sweetness and a bitter hop bite. Finishes snappy and moderately bitter.

GT2 (8671) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 28, 2010
Bottle. Pours a fizzy amber with a small yellow head that dissipates like soda. No lace. No retention. Aroma is toast, brown sugar, some chemicals. Taste is burnt toast, chemicals, old pancake syrup, artificial candies. Yuck.

JoeMcPhee (8534) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2009
Cask at Rattle N Hum. Very clean nose. Soft sweet crackery malts. Nice breadiness with a firm, spicy hoppiness. Bready and slightly yeasty. The overall character is of a fresh and well-balanced lager. In contrast to most lagers, the cask really accentuates the balance in this beer. Surprisingly tasty.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2010 I assure you I will enter my entire review as soon as possible. This beer is a slightly hazy copper color with a medium thin light beige head that dissipates steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of bready malt and hops. Light body with flavors of sweet malt, resiny hops and a bit of earth. The finish is lightly hopped with a mildly bitter aftertaste. A little better than expected, but an average beer overall.

Bottle from brother-in-law, and spied in Capone’s subsequently. Pours dark straw with nose of cloying hopcit, some off notes. Tastes watery, with some pale malt, mild hopcitrus, and some plasticy notes. Not good.

Bottle thanks to mar. Pours with a minimal head, clear copper body. Aroma is grassy and bready. Fizzy, bitter dry and grassy. Not great.
