Tap. Medium amber with fine carbonation. Grainy, mild hops, white grapes and minerals. Taste is mildly sweet and bitter, but more dry than anything. Watery, bubbly feel.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 18, 2012
On tap at Phillips, Charlotte airport. Layover ticks can be demoralizing but this amber was less groan-inducing than many I’ve had. Lively copper body, prickly carbonation bringing out a bit of pale malt and hops in the nose. Consistent with this impression, taste was a bit more dry and bitter than anticipated, and thank fuck for that. Still not much going on, but appreciably greater than expectations.

Pours brownish amber color with ample foamy head. On tap at the Harrisburg airport. Taste is toasted malt with a cleansing hop offset at the finish. Average.

Kinz (3258) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 2, 2011
Got to sample this at a rather random and slightly unexpected stop in DC on the bus ride back from DFH. Medium amber. Aroma lightly of caramel and slight citric hops. Flavor matched. Unremarkable, but not bad at least.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JAN 3, 2011
(Draft @ Phiilips in BWI Airport) Served in a shaker. Lightly hazy golden amber body with a smallish off-white head. Aroma features lots of hop florals and fruits with some vanilla-caramel underneath. Mouthfeel is fairly smooth but a little bit pebbly. Medium-bodied, slightly dry. Very nice well-retained rings of lacing. Flavor is fruity and lightly floral over a fairly low key caramel base. Lots of hoppy burps. Pleasant beer.

jkwood04 (3804) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 6, 2010
On draft in a pilsner glass. Pours clear, light amber with a thin head. Aroma of malt and a very faint hint of hops. Thin texture. Flavor of bread with a slight note of hops on the finish. A very standard, forgetable beer.
