Lubiere (9778) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2007
A reddish amber ale with a thin off white head. A murkey grainy malt with gravy notes (???). In mouth, rather unpleasant rye malt, raw mash and butter. Not very good. 11th Annual CNY Brewfest, Feb.5 2007.

hopscotch (8869) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 27, 2003
Sparkling clear amber ale with a medium-sized, creamy, off-white head. Very good retention and decent lacing. The aroma is malty with lots of caramel and toffee. Light citrus notes. The flavor is very well-balanced, but a bit thin. Hopped very nicely. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, very dry, then bitter finish. Leaves the mouth feeling parched.

Sammy (8398) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2008
Peachy colour and malt in aroma. Thin, very dry, and astringency in finish. Malt and fruit but not very drinkable.Perhaps I would enjoy this better if I didn’t have a beer in a long while.

3fourths (7879) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2007
Clear ruby orange colored body with moderately thick white lacing clinging to the sides of the glass. Sharp malt nose, coarse burnt hops smelled as well, and a scent that almost resembles some sherry or amaretto, only with a bit of a burnt quality. Medium to light body, slick up front and a bit chewy, then more coarse on the back. Centers mostly around a burnt cereal grain flavor with outside hints of bran and oranges. Finishes a bit watery and plain.

DocLock (7731) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2005
Pours light copper with minimal off-white head and huge carbonation bubbles. Aroma of malt, caramel, hops, slight butyric acid. Tastes caramel malty, with some fruit in the finish. Decent palate, but not earth shattering.

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2008
Courtesy of Degarth. Pours hazy copper with weak head. The first whiff of the aroma is inviting with a pulse of aged muted pine hops, some mild dark fruit, grains, malts and late in the draw mild vegetation. Hmm. The taste has an initial blunted spike of pine hops followed by blended sweet malts and lightly roasted malts. It ends with some hoppiness and an annoying level of soapiness.
