Dorwart (2363) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Thin head which disappeared when I turned around. Minimal carbonation. Light sweet malty corn aroma. Not very good . Light roastyness. Color is a light dirty brown. Nasty roasty and bitter flavor. Blech. I am really starting to not like Otter Creak brews. Finish is dry and bitter with some harsh roastyness. Don’t waster your time.

Pale amber color, mostly like most other lagers out there. A little spicy, which was not what I expected. Eh, just okay.

tommy8768 (120) - Litlle Compton, Rhode Island, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Very pale amber color with not much head. More malty than most lagers, does have a strange tea like taste as previously mentioned. Most Otter Creek products seem to have this taste. Better than macro swill but still just average.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUN 24, 2006
Bottled. Pours a pale amber with a diminishing white head. Liohtly floral/spicy nose. Light to medium body, light carbonation and a somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Taste is sligthtly sweet fruit and bread, with a quick spice and grapefruit finish.

I swear this beer had a weird tea flavor and smell - very strange in a bad way. Not a rebuy for me - but who am I. cereal, golden, clear, sparkling, frothy, light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, thin feel, lively,

HighlanderOne (989) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Poured from bottle. Fresh malt smell. Looks like your average lager. OK, but kinda light on the flavor, good hop/malt blend, extremely drinkable. Finished OK. Nothing fantastic here, but a decent drinking beer.

eaglefan538 (2863) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAY 31, 2006
Another lager. Drinkable but I wouldn’t pick this over others out there. More malty than hoppy but the flavor isn’t that strong. By the end of the bottle, I couldn’t taste it that well. Of course, that’s better than the American junk macros that have no flavor even in the first sip.

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Pours a light amber color. Aromas of roast malts, hops. Flavor is head and shoulders above most lagers. Nice hop and malt flavors.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 23, 2006
Bottle: Dull golden, hazy, minor white sudsy head, sparce lacing, very light carbonation.   Sour nose, slightly lactic and grainy.   Immediate sourness on the tongue, mash tun & graininess as well.   There is a sligth sweetness too.   Body and mouthfeel are average, at best.   Finishes with a bit of overcooked vegetable.   Not bad, but nothing spectacular.   Wished Otter Creek could put out brews more to the caliber of their Stove Pipe Porter.   Thanks danem for sharing!

UPDATED: APR 24, 2006 Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus Pours golden with decent head that quickly diminishes, good malt aroma, decent flavor a little metallic aftertaste, not a heavy body, drinkable.
