(draft @ Tap and Mallet - Rochester, NY) Clear red pour with almost no head. Mild caramel and malt aroma. Dry and semi-sweet flavor at the front that disappears quickly and leaves a bitter flavor of pretty much nothing on your palate.

Pours an unclear amber, with a fine chunky head. The aroma is crystal malt, caramel, floral hops. Medium bodied, crisp, toasty, sweet maltiness leads to a dry finish. Slightly smoky. Feels incomplete, kind of like a dry Octoberfest. Not good, but not necessarily bad.

This is not an amber. Lightly sweet more like a cream ale, barely no finish meh

Nice looking dark golden beer. Hops and mild malt. Not bad if you are thirsty and looking for decent tasting pint.

HeistAlmighty (1110) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 20, 2011
Draft at the Thirsty Whale in Bar Harbor. Aroma hits hard, so much tangy pine hops it skewed into spruce hedge clippings. Nice red amber colour with a pillowy white head. Left good lacing down the glass. Some sweet caramel malts up front, but the hops quickly follow and build a spruce cabin on the back of my tongue. Average medium body with a dryish finish. I rather liked this one, but I could see it not being everyone’s cup of tea. The hops here let it hang with the Bitters and the IPAs.

I think this beer is delicious. I had it on tap and never had I had a more hoppy tasting amber ale.

12 oz bottle, part of a mixed 12 pack. Purchased at Shaw’s in Milford NH. Pours clear copper with a 1/2" off white head. No lace. Aroma is malty with citrus notes. Citrus and pine upfront with a nice sweetness in the middle. medium bodied with a dry palate.

Boliv (1148) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2011
Bottle, notched "Best before March 2012," opened to celebrate the birth of my buddy’s first child. Pours clear ruby red with hints of orange and a small light tan head. Aromas of slightly sweet and sour citrus hops, grapefruit peel, sweet papaya and cocoa, with some earthy malt. The flavor is bitter citrus with funky tropical fruit; bitter and sour, with some sweetness and juicy hops. Refreshing, crisp, and sessionable. Very nice, and very drinkable. Congratulations Sean and Marisa! [795]

Draft. Pours amber with a white head. Sweet crystal malty aroma with light hops. The flavor has sweet crystal malt, light floral hops, and some corny off notes. Not that good.

Grapefruit hop nose and flavor is light grapefruit hops, dry finish. $1.80 for a 12oz bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me. Best by Mar 2012.
