bhensonb (10693) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Smells of medium roasty malt, with a hint of lemon. Color of overripe apricot. A bit thin, with grassy notes. And malt. And malt. But not sweet thicky malt. Just malt. Finishes thin, with a bit more sour than bitter. And the malt hangs in to the end. Very drinkable, but not what I’d stock up for a desert island.

Tmoney99 (10405) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 8, 2007
Bottle from Dilly Deli. Poured a reddish brown color with a moderate fizzy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate tart citrus malty aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

Ratman197 (9448) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2008
On tap @ Oakland Airport poured a clear reddish amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of carmel, citrus and a hint of earthiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel and fruittiness with a crisp lightly sweet finish.

hopscotch (8781) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2003
Crystal clear, copper-colored ale. Small, creamy, off-white head. Malty nose with notes of broth, alcohol and butterscotch. A touch floral as well. Good, malty flavor with blasts of toffee and cinnamon butter. Almost balanced out by the hops, but not quite. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, astringent, malty finish.

3fourths (7858) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2003
Deep copper red. Nose of wet cardboard and lawn clippings. Is this what broken rake means? Because it smells like a pile of wet leaves. Medium bodied, some slight skunkiness initially, which then turns mellow, and towards the end develops into a wet, sweet, maple syrup flavor, with cedar and honey on the tip of the tongue.
