From an old rating note: 12oz bottle. copper pour with thin head. caramel, sweet malts and buttery notes in the aroma. vegetable vibe to it in the taste. mostly about the malts.

Pours deep amber with a thin beige head. Aroma is all crystal malt. Nice flavour notes of caramel, lots of crystal malt. English hops, very nice sessional.

A wonderfully colorful and vibrant amber ale. A bouquet of scents primarily malts, caramel, nutttiness and barley make an interesting aroma. Taste is better than the aroma. Caramel malts, sweet and clean. Palate is undertoned and overall this is a pretty good beer.

Some wheat. Just a little sweet. I was surprised to taste the wheat in this beer. German yeast I think. Light malt body. Very light hop presence, I thought I was drinking an oktoberfest.

VertBaconStrips (2111) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 15, 2009
Ick. Nice clean, mahogany brew. Even a hard pour could not coax any sustainable cap. Great colour though. Aroma: meh. Mild malt, slight alcohol, phenols. Man, this is a weak smelling beer. More alcohol now, tasty malts, deep toasted and caramel malts. Ack. Alcohol again! Dammit already! Tons of toasty malts in the taste, bread, dry, hard nasty bitterness (not strong though), pepper. faint oak taste as well. Medium to medium full bodied, mild carbonation, stays thick all the way through, long dark aftertaste and mid length hard bitterness remains. Crap beer.

(12oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) Pours a dark yellow. Smell is muted but sweet, can’t describe it much beyond that. Taste is extremely sweet with absolutely no hops. One dimensional and not that enjoyable overall.

bu11zeye (12039) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2009
(12oz bottle) Pours a clear amber body with a small white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, and herbs. Flavor of sweet caramel, toffee, and mild hops (citrus, grass).

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 27, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours light amber with minimal head. Aroma is caramel with some raisin and a bit astringent. Flavor much the same, too metallic for my tastes, but could be worse.
