Appearance: clear coppery light brown, with one finger of creamy nitro beige head. Aroma: graham crackers, toffee, a bit of cardboard. Taste: caramel hard candy, toffee, a bit nutty, with some mellow, earthy hops. Finish: smooth and creamy, with just a hint of minerality or metal at the end. Notes: Very enjoyable, with sweet and nutty malts buoyed by a creamy smooth palate. On tap at the Ale House Columbia as Coventry Cream Ale.

sonnycheeba (3501) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Tap. Pours clear copper with a trace of creamy white head. Aroma is caramel and cookie malts, floral hops, lemon, grassy notes, and light vegetal notes. Flavor is sweet malt forward with dry hops (light bitterness), light fruit esters, and some vegetal notes; not much of a finish. Light body and low carbonation. Maybe a bad batch? What I had a year ago was much better.

MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 6, 2012
hazy amber, lasting cream head, moderate lacing. Lightly spiced nose of nutmeg, mushroom dankness. Flavor a bit vegetal, heavy spice sweetness, chocolate, off sour notes drawing light ash contrast in finish. Soft profile smothers tongue. Can you say ash blanket?

GT2 (8380) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Tap at Pratt St Alehouse. Pours a clear tea amber. Thick, creamy cask or nitro looking head. Muted nose. Taste is dusty and vegetal. Mild bark bitterness. Not a lot going on, though almost every beer of the 10 we sampled as a group had some very astringent and chemical flavors. I think there is a major flaw in the overall brewing process here.
