CanIHave4Biebers brought this up to RBSG - thanks again, Biebers! Pours a cloudy gold color with a white head. Notes of sugar, pale and sweet malts, hay, and metal. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty, dry mouthfeel. Fine for what it is. Doesn’t seem old, either.

Homer321 (2117) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Shared at RBSG 2014 in the Fart Dungeon. Thanks Andy! Nose is honey and paper with a completely flat and oxidized taste. A weird papery bland taste. If you’re storing any of this in your cellar, you might want to drink this now as it is definitely on a downward spiral in aging this any longer.

Bottle @ Presidential Suite. Thanks, CanIHave4Biebers. This rate probably should just be a blank post, but I guess I can’t do that. Pale straw pour with a very small white head. Smells mostly just like water and cardboard. Maybe some lemon and apple. Flavor is pretty much the same story. Slight tang and bitterness, but mostly just really, really watery. Tons of oxidation in the form of paper and cardboard.

TheAlum (5909) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle shared at the Thursday Petey Fart/Rake Dungeon (St Louis, MO). Pours a pale gently hazed straw golden hue, a bit dulled and darker with frothy whitish head. Good stick around and decent lacing. Aromas are fruity, lots of green apple, bready malts, a touch of citrus with some stale cardboard, touches of bread. A bit stale. Beer itself is a touch stale, grainny with wet cardboard. Touches of stale grain, gentle sweeter slant. Some yeastiness, deadened cardboard, wet paper. A bit bready, gentle yeast and stale grains as we finish. Exactly as expected. Nose is whack. Beer itself is manageable.

crossovert (7866) - Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2014
355ml bottle. Attic aged for maximus sessionability. Bogfart, swamp must, bum carboard, its all here folks.

Bottle tanks to someone! Pours a clear pale gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a light corn and and sweet grains. Flavor has lots of corn with sons sweet grains. Not much here.
