On tap at the 2010 Microfest in St. Louis. Pours a clear bright amber with a robust off white head. Aroma is pine cones. Taste is asweet malt, brown sugar and pine/grapefruit. Also pretty damn hoppy with noticable alcohol.

NachlamSie (2738) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 13, 2010
On tap at Rich O’s. Pours red with a small head. Not much aroma considering the style. Berries, brown sugar and a mild wooden bitterness are noted. The palate is a little sticky. My first impression of the flavor is how sweet it is. It’s downright sticky like glazed cake. Hops are not all that defined. Some wood, berries, dessert sweetness make up the flavor. This is like a well hopped English styled barleywine.

Dogbrick (7687) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2010
On draught at Brugge Brasserie. This brew is a clear dark amber color with a thin and rocky off-white head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops and citrus along with a touch of honey. Rich body with a strong hops character that has floral and citrus notes. Balancing sweet malt and honey in the background. The finish is moderately bitter hops with an herbal and malt finish. Solid all around.

Wow, a hop varity dancing on my palate. It almost has the quality of an english ipa, but that cascade jumps up and bites you. Very unique. Worth trying, not my favorite but still very good.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 7, 2010
Pours light amber with an off white head. Aroma is earthy hops with a little bit of citrus. Flavor is a blend of earthy, spicy, and citrusy hops and a little bit of light and caramel malt. Pretty good, but not as good as other batches I have had, seems to differ from batch to batch, as is expected from a new brewing plant and the fact they just started distributing recently.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Draft at Boombazz pizza in Louisville. Comes out looking like a pretty standard IPA, copper colored. Nose is sweet and British, Fuggles stand out, don’t get a ton of Cascades. Taste is sweet and I can’t believe it’s just GP malt, there is definitely a mid-range crystal malt as well. Pretty mediocre, unfortunately.

Clear orange-red, white cover. Aroma is slick, oily hops, sweet caramels. Taste is sweet caramel, toffee, fruit, piney bitterness.
