argo0 (13070) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 13, 2003
Bubbled clear light amber topped by quickly dissipating beige head. Aroma is sweet butterscotch, caramel, floral, light earthy. Taste is butterscotch up front, followed by caramel, floral, before finally finishing earthy bitter. Medium body, some crispness at the end. A decent beer, but I would have liked it much better without the butterscotch.

(Bottle) Pours a light amber color with a large frothy head. I wish the beer tasted as good as it looked. It had kind of a sour taste.

Dogbrick (11332) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2006
On draught at Heinz Field. Amber color with a medium thin beige head with decent retention. Cannot comment on lacing as it was a plastic cup. Lightly malty aroma. Medium-bodied and sweet with malt and caramel flavors. There is a touch of hops character too. The finish is mostly sweet but has touches of bitterness here and there. Pretty average all around.
