Sample at May 2009 beer club meeting. Wow... this was better than I thought it’d be. Amber color with a sweet, malty aroma. Light hops and a neat, earthy sweet flavor. The toasted malt is noticeable. Very drinkable...

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - MAY 27, 2009
12 oz bottle much thanks to Soonah. Pours a dark copper with fluffy beige head. The aroma is stale bread, cotton candy, moss, and a spiciness that kind of reminds me of rye. The flavor is mild earthy and spicy hops (I would have guessed EKG even before reading the description), that dull caramel sweetness of British caramel malts, a hint of candy, and some canteloupe. The finish is moderately dry with that same odd rye-ish note that I picked up in the nose. Decent enough for what it is.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 21, 2009
Bottle courtesy of ericandersnavy – thanks Eric. Pours hazy dark amber with a 2 finger light tan head. The nose is earthy hops, malt and bread dough. The taste is malt, more earthy hops and faint pine in the finish. Medium bodied. An ok pale. Thanks again Eric!

dchmela (2631) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2009
Bottle courtesy Blutt59. Light brown pour with a thin tan head. English style hop aroma (earthy) with a nice touch of malt. Malt, biscuit, and a touch of citrus hops round out the taste. Decent pale ale.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2009
12oz bottle courtesy of ericandersnavy. Pours a dark amber color with reddish highlights and a one finger, creamy tan head. Aroma is sweet and malty with some notes of toasted bread, grass, hay, light floral hop aromas. Flavor is also sweet and malty with notes of toasted nuts, honey, caramel, roasted bread, light spice notes. Generally medium body with a malty and sweet finish. Surprised at the lack of hop presence in this beer.

angrypirate06 (1387) - Texas, USA - APR 11, 2009
Bottle. Pours a large foamy head with brownish gold body. Aroma of burnt malts, sourdough bread, and some hop bitterness. Taste is earthy, almost sweet chocolate and dirt. Fizzy mouthfeel.

lb4lb (2520) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2009
Pours amber with a medium lived beige head. Smell is malty more so than hoppy and has a toasty malt nose, in fact. Taste however is slightly more hoppy than the smell would lead on and helps balance the toasty caramel sweetness. The hops are earthy and just a hint metallic perhaps. Medium to slightly full body with crisp carbonation. Overall, a solid, sessionable beer, I thought, but nothing too outrageous.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Bottle from Central Market Houston. Pours an amber-red with decent cream head. Nose of caramel malts and some cocoa. Flavor was caramel, toasted malts and light EKG hops. Good mouthfeel.
