Leighton (11824) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2011
Bottle in NYC with Chris. Pours clear garnet with a small, white head. Crystal malt aroma, bit of caramel and light earthy hops. Nice balance in the flavor, subtle hop bitterness, grass, toast and mild brown sugar. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Mild sweet finish, toasty malts, light grass. Very easy drinking and very pleasant.

brokensail (11528) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 30, 2013
On tap @ Southpaw BBQ. Copper pour with a white head. Aroma is onion, garlic, and pine. Some sweet toasted bread, caramel, and nuts, too. A touch of soap. Flavor is sweet up front with a rather strong bitterness on the finish. Lots of onion and pine. Toast, caramel, and nuts. Light orange peel. Not a fan.

bhensonb (11489) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 9, 2011
Bottle from Whole Foods in Petaluma. Pours amber with a creamy beige head. Aroma is something like a mandarin. Near full body. Flavor is mandarin with some roast malt. Overall this is bitter and hoppy enough to stand up to some IPAs. Finishes like a clementine.

Drake (8980) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2010
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods, Fairfax, VA. Pours a clear copper color with a large frothy offwhite head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of peppery, citrus hops and caramel. The taste is earthy and nutty notes, citrus hops with a bit of a resiny note. Medium bodied. 3300th rating!

GT2 (8741) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Tap at Vienna WF. Clear amber pour. Huge 360 lacing. Nose is hefty diacetyl. Taste is light tea, sugar, diet cola, with pretty obvious diacetyl. Minerally, over carbonated mouthfeel. Diacetyl giving faux body. Pretty messy but not offensive. Palate is not astringent or papery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

drowland (6144) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - OCT 28, 2012
10/27/12. On tap at Casbah. Light amber/brown pour with a nice, thick khaki head. Light aroma with some caramel maltiness, nuts, and a definite citrus and apple presence. The flavor is much the same with perhaps a touch more citrus and again that apple presence. Combine with the malts it reminds me of caramel apple in a way. Eh.
