Dogbrick (10714) - 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.

This is just pure garbage, fart in a bottle. Why even bother to make this drivel?

hopscotch (10522) - 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 (9411) - Oceanside, 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.

DocLock (9242) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2010
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.

BVery (9172) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Bottle. Slightly hazy reddish orange pour with a smaller off-white head. Aroma is grassy, earthy, and caramel. Medium to lighter palate, noticeable carbonation. Taste is caramel malt, hay, and some hop kicker that actually works pretty well.
