TomDecapolis (4473) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUN 17, 2008
Pours a lightly hazy golden/yellow with a medium foamy/bubbly head that left some spotty lacing. Aroma of hay, horse barn (but not in a funky lambic way), grainy bread, malty with a touch of some citrus. Flavor of cereal grains, grassy, hay, lightly floral and citrus notes. Some hop bitterness and flavor that lingers around. For some weird reason I was getting blueberry pie out of the flavor. No clue why.

HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2008
This is a true local session beer that actually tastes good. You could easily throw back quite a few of these due to the low ABV. Malty aroma with a hint of hops. Flavor is grains, malts, a bit astringent, and a hop bitterness in the background. Not too sweet, not too dry. Call me crazy, but I liked this one.

Kenzinger, catchy name, catchy label, and probably a beer that will catch on locally as well. Blonde Ale is light on bitterness, malt/grain and lemon/citrus dominate. Kenzinger is lighter on alcohol than its Canadian Ale ’cousins’. Perfect lawnmower beer, and in the Philadelphia area that’s the type of beer the masses will consume. Happily consumed @ a Memorial Day party with all four Philadelphia Brewing Co’s brands in the coolers. Kenzinger was the most popular that day.

hopdog (8867) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2008
12oz bottle. Poureda medium and clear golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of grains and some maltiness. Tastes of the same. THin body. Not much going on here.

zathrus13 (1715) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Gold, with a white head. Aroma is malt, grain, and hops. Flavor is crisp, but also astringent, and somewhat odd. An OK brew, but that’s about it.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
DocLock (7828) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Bottle. Gold pour with 2-finger white head. Nose has mild notes of honey, hopcitrus, and honey. Tastes on the watery side, with some hopcitric tartness and some slightly astringent pale malt notes. Forgettable.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2008
Pours a clear golen yelow with thin white head. Aroma and flavor quite bland. Crisp and easy to swallow but nothing about the flavor stands out. Not as hoppy as advertised.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Bottle. Pale golden-yellow body with a clean white head. Odd briny aroma with a note of yellow mustard. The wild ride continues as fish tones emerge in the flavor. Smooths out a bit after the senses adapt. Some notable spicy hop flavors plus sweet doughy malt form the base here. But a strange grainy, phenolic quality is supplying the off characters. I really, really wanted to like this. But it just ain’t happening.
