jcwattsrugger (11004) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUL 12, 2008
12oz bottle-pours a thin rich white head with some lacing and gold color. Aroma is mild citrus-lemon/earthy/spicy (EKG, Saaz&Amarillo?), secondary grain/medium malt. Taste is earthy/spicy hops (more EKG/Fuggle&some Saaz-continental), most of the citrus disappeared from the aroma, grainy/husky. Enjoyable. Good carbonation.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2007
Bottle from Capone’s. Hazy canary dark straw color, with 2-finger off-white head. Aroma of heavy tropical fruit, hops, citrus, bready pale malt, apricot. Tastes pale malty, with some hopcitrus notes and a dry apricotty fruit presence, and some tangerine as it warmed. The taste was a minor letdown after the aroma, but this is one I’d definitely buy again.

Dogbrick (7244) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 19, 2007
Located at a liquor store in Brookline, MA. Pours a clear dark yellow-gold color with a thin bone white head that dissipates steadily. Spotty lacing. Aroma of grassy hops with touches of sweet fruit. Light, crisp body with bready malt, grain and some hops flavor. The finish is dry and mildly bitter and does not resonate with much flavor aside from some weak hops. Average all around.

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Bottle (thanks Sue!) Golden? This poured more an amber color with a thin yeasty white head. Moderately crystaline hoppy aroma. Nice well-rounded hoppy beer, no like an American Pale or anything, but well-rounded "beer" ... not overpowering in any ay, bu it’s got just enough of everything ... little hoppy click, nice malty base, little apple fruity twist. Nice. (#2645, 1/12/07)

Draught: Aroma of floral hops and generic fruit. Poured golden in color with a small white head that lasted throughout. Clear. Very sparkling. Fair lacing. Medium sweet flavor. Tastes of floral hops, butter, bitter hops, wheat, grains, lemon, and a hint of citrus. Medium body. Very slightly sticky texture. Average to lively carbonation. Sweet hoppy finish.
