Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Sample at Red Brick as part of Ohio Brew Week. Orange-amber pour with a medium off-white head that diminishes slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Malty aroma with touches of hops. Light body with a toasty character and notes of caramel malt and fruit. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Pretty straightforward Amber Ale overall.

Dusty 12oz bottle from the last six pack offered at my local liquor store. Nose is full of foam as was my first sip. Foam city. Sip added caramel and floral notes. Tastes kind of sour and a fad sweet. I bet this is super old. Odd for mowing grass.

DrSilverworm (6807) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2013
On tap during Ohio Brew Week 2013, taster from Tonyís. Clear orange red color. Little, slightly off-white head. Couple loose splotches of lace. Lighter to medium body. Smooth, kind of soft lighter carbonation, more dry finish. Caramel malt flavor, lightly spicy. Moderate bitter taste, minimal sweet. OK red... Kind of a boring style.. Not sure why itís so popular

Aroma: Nutty aroma with hints of berries underneath. Appearance:Cloudy red amber with thick tan head. Taste: Light sweetness balanced by a light bitterness. Palate: Medium body, average carbonation, slick texture, long, slightly skunky, finish. Overall: Meh....itís not horrible, but itís not outstanding or monumental in any way. Iím not blown away by it.

JaBier (4983) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Sample at The Brew Kettle on 9/11/12. Pours clear amber with a medium off-white head. Malty nose with some caramel, but aroma is faint. Malty and caramelly flavor with a light finish. Not a bad aroma/flavor, just not much there.

Bottle. Opened bottle and it erupted with light brown whipped cream. This is the worst of 7500.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 15, 2012
12oz bottle, courtesy of miketd: pours a clear deep bronze with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet grainy malty nose with a touch of grassy hops. Starts with average fullness and carbonation with mildly toasted pale maltiness and grassy hop bitterness before a drier, fairly clean finish. Not a whole lot going on here, but could be a little more balanced.

Opaque medium reddish amber with a good long-lasting off-white head and splattered lace. The taste is an intertwining of caramel malt and refined floral hops. As one appears, the other pushes through, only to give way to the first again. The finish finally winds down to a soft bittering. Light enough to have several. Interesting, worth another look.
