3fourths (9137) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 8, 2008
12oz bottle. Clear copper amber color. Nose of stachy dry hops, like dried lawn clippings, along with a honey and caramel fish scent. Flavor: simple, crisp, sharp, slightly sour and vegetal, with a stale bread and dried grass flavor. A simple beer.

Pours a clear darker brown amber with no head. Nose is a bit like wet wood with some caramel mixed in there and a sugary tone to it. Flavor is a bit like a wet cardboard, but not so much in a totally negative thing. It just has a flavor of a type of wood with a sweet tone. Kind of a thinner caramel flavor. The wood is a bit too stringent and too much. Throws it off balance and nothing helps it get back up. Feel is okay. Drinkability is...okay. I am not really too impressed here. Decent, but not worth going to at all really. Unless you’re an organic freak.

Pours a clear copper with not much head. There is a strong creaminess to the taste and mouthfeel which, I think, is rather unique.

Bottle. I came in with low expectations and this beer exceeded them. Pours an amber color. Aroma is malt and hop notes. Not that much else to it really.

jgb9348 (5684) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Slightly hazy amber coloured body with a light tan head and a bunch of floaters throughout the beer! Aroma of light hops, a strong malt body and a bit of caramel, tucked in with some raisins. Light-bodied; A short dose of hops, with more malt than expected and very little else. Aftertaste shows some sugars, but mostly cardboardy type tastes. Overall, a pretty poor beer, with little to offer for this style or any others. Overall, a very big disappointment, not really worth trying again. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 16-December-2007.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 12, 2007
12 oz bottle from Halftime. Pours a slightly hazy medium amber with a lively carbonation and a foamy head- light lace. Aroma is light toffee, and sweet light caramel malts, some light nuttiness, and herbal grassy hops with some light earthiness- also has a wierd citrussy lemon hint. Toffee and lightly staled malts, crackery, and some grassy hops in the end- actually becomes tea-like and a little astringent. Overall easy drinking, but it might be a bit past its prime. A bit better than average for a Steam/Common.
