vyvvy (3607) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 1, 2006
Pours lightly hazy amber with a small tan head. Aroma is typical malty amber ale maltiness - the aroma itself is fairly hard to detect. Medium / light body with a small amount of carbonation. Taste is a bit watery and musty. There is some light malt that is somewhat astringent. The finish adds more astringency and some spice. Mediocre at best.

shigadeyo (2962) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2006
Amber color with chill haze. Mild carbonation with a yellowish head. Aroma is pine/resin hops and malt. Flavor is caramel malt extract and a hoppy, malty and slightly bitter finish. Average palate. Not bad, but not great either. However, the warmer it gets, the better the aroma and flavor. Both become fuller, slightly more comlex, and more enjoyable. 12 oz bottle, $1.75 from the Pour House Bottle Shop.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2006
Bonus from Hippie4beer. Pours a medium amber with a thin dissipating head. Slight chill haze which clears to show you there are lots of hop leaf particles floating around. Aroma is initially lots of DMS when chilled, but gives way to some nice fruity esters, light citrus hops and some caramel malt sweetness. Flavor is a bit weak- light caramel malts, some dms and herbal hops- some hay-like notes, and a light herbal bitterness.

muenster (345) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 14, 2006
Draught at Oaken Barrel Brewpub. Poured a nice red color, with an offwhite head. Strong malts and toast in the aroma. Flavor has definite hoppy turn, but the finish is pure maltiness.

NachlamSie (2646) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 13, 2006
Draught during my Great Lakes region brew tour. Bold red hue, tan head. The aroma is toasty with bright acidity. The malt is particularly defined here. It is very bready and a tad buttery (not bad in this case). The hops shine in the finish with a very narrow brightness on the tip of the tongue, though the bready malts ultimately prevail on the palate. This could be a reliable session brew if I were a regular barfly here.

schwaiger (90) - Laramie, Wyoming, USA - AUG 13, 2006
12 oz bottle with flying Indiana woman with disproportionately large breasts. Poured a semi-hazy medium red amber with an average sized, mostly lasting off-white head. Aroma is moderately hoppy, some pine some lemon. Straightforeard amber flavor, though not the punch I’ve come to expect from a good red. Some wheat. Body is light to medium light. Not bad, but easily forgetable.

Headbanger (3001) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2006
12oz bottle-A nice malty hue with a good off white head and good amber color. Not much for the palate on the front end but the back end bursts with malty flavor. Not a bad amber.

jaymobrown (1617) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2006
I really enjoyed how this poured. Nice bubbly head, good red amber hue. Strong bubblegum smell just came blasting out of it. Sweet nose. Some yeast and hops. Bitter fairly straight forward taste. Nice hops. Really long lasting finish. Thin mouthfeel.

hopdog (8521) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2006 12oz bottle acquired in trade with atpayne (thanks!). Poured a deep orange color, slightly hazy, and a small sized off white head. Faint aromas of caramel, citrus, wet hop leaves, and an all around maltiness. Tastes of caramel, oranges, and some citrus. Cool looking label.

Thanks to hopdog. Pours a hazy golden amber with a small white head. Aroma of a light hop and malt balance. Flavor was also very light. Some hops and malt. Nothing offensive, but nothing that stands out. A bit watery. A light bitterness at the end.
