Elwood (3046) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Serving: 12 oz. bottle. It pours a clear amber color with a short lived white head. The nose is a mix of euro lager (thanks to that clear bottle Iím guessing) and buttery English ale. Itís a little slick on the tongue with a stale bitterness and a touch of toffee. Off balance with a bitter finish that reminds me faintly of aspirin. Light to medium body with average carbonation. Less than mediocre.

Patrickctenchi (3556) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Pours copper-amber with a frothy, parchment coloured head. Aroma is slightly skunked, (clear glass) caramel malt, flowers. Taste is slightly nutty, slightly stale, caramel malt. A bit of earthy, leafy bitter. Ok, but a bit bland.

Bif (1409) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Pours a copper color with a decent head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of citrus and mild malt sweetness. Taste of malt, some caramel sweetness and mild citrus in the background. mild bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Moderate body and smooth with a nice balance. Enjoyable Bitter, nothing fancy but still quite solid.

cheap (4004) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Drank directly from a crystal clear bottle. This beer is classified as a bitter but I find very little bitter attributes within. Very mellow and easy to get along with. Some cabbage on the pop but that is to be expected considering the bottle. Nice clean lookin almost brown pale beer. Yes, goes down fairly easy. These lower alky beers are fun to deal with. There are some ale attributes present but fer sure its better than some of those moreland beers Iíve had like speckeld hen but this may not be as good as the golden hen I had on cask. On the finish this beer is trying to a little bitter but never quite gets there.

DrSilverworm (6284) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 2, 2012
12oz bottle. Good clean hoppy aroma, caramel. Smooth, lighter crisp carbonation, light body - impressively easy to drink. Good light bitter taste. Clear orange color, nearly no head. Light bit of honey? Much better than expected

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle. Skunked aroma that soon lost itís skunk and became a pleasant floweriness. Restrained sweet malty body, fairly light with a lekker finish. Better cold

Clear bottle. Surprisingly not skunked. And surprisingly good. Light toastiness, light hop bitterness, pleasant.
