Dogbrick (8149) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Sample at Twenty Tap in Indianapolis. Pours a clear amber-brown color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes rapidly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Notes of hops and caramel malt in the nose. Light body with flavors of sweet malt and caramel, hops and a touch of fruit. The finish is malty with a caramel and mild hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

deyholla (6660) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 12, 2010
On tap. Pours a clear orange amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma has a nice combination of sweet grains and citrus hops. Flavor is dominated by pine hops and the grain and citrus notes are an after thought.

phaleslu (6555) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Draft at Three Floyds, one of the guest taps when I visited. They had it spelled "Beek’s Best", so I’m not sure which one is right. Not a big deal. Pours a clear orange-gold with an eggshell white head that laces the glass. Notes of straw, grain, cereal, wheat, and grassy hops. Light-bodied, with average to low carbonation and a grainy mouthfeel. Sandwiched in between a bunch of Three Floyds beers, this one wasn’t too exciting.

BBB63 (6051) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 17, 2003
At Indiana MBG Fest: Copper hue with no head. Fruity, aromatic hops, roasted malts, and musty aroma. Taste starts sweet and nutty but quickly changed to a bitter and spicy tone. This thin to medium-bodied brew has a dry and fizzy mouthfeel. Moderate metallic feel as well. Better than average bitter, I enjoyed it and will seek out again if in area.

b3shine (5493) - Indiana, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Draft to sampler at the brewhouse. Looks decent; a transparent copperish brown with white lacing. Smells solid; bitter hops. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Decent and easy to drink.
