UPDATED: MAR 19, 2004 Bottle pours amber with a medium sized off-white head.   Decent carbonation, good lacing.   Lots of very fine bits floating about, almost appears unfiltered.   Aroma is grain & malts.   Taste is much the same, but with a sweaty sock & ashtray finish.   Definately thin on the palate.   I can see why this is what they offer to BMC drinkers at Redhook.

BBB63 (6510) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 3, 2008
Bottle and served in standard pint glass: Clean deep golden hue with a fizzy head and some lace. The aroma has notes of bready and caramel malt, herbal hop, some apple and pear esters, a bit medicinal as well. The taste is rather boring as it is missing the brash citric twang I was led to believe was here. Really noting more than a standard paint-by-numbers amber ale. Malty and sweet with a minimal hop bitterness. Additional there is a veggie and corn aftertaste that sucks. The mouth feel sprite but short, thin-bodied. What a waste of money, I was looking for something refreshing and this is not it.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6375) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a vibrant golden-apricot color with a large creamy yellow-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was sweetish caramel with vague fruity and citric hops. The flavor was tangy and sweetish with caramel, lemon, orange, nut and bread elements. The finish was medium length tangy citrus, honey and bread. Medium body. Pleasant.

HogTownHarry (6374) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2009
Bottle (12oz). Shared by garthicus with me and blankboy. Clear bright gold, smallish white head. Tangy, slightly harsh, sweet - apricot? Taste - same, cereal, generic bitterness, slight fake fruit - wtf? Slick, sort of lively, harsh building aftertaste. Not too good.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 29, 2009
Pours copper/amber with an off white thin head. Smells of sweet malt and rosey. Tastes earthy and semi sweet with some peppery splashes on the finish.

Strykzone (6223) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2007
Copper is a pretty good description of the color of this beer. It has a small and short lived head that leaves a small lacing. Aroma is a very pleasant floral, hop, and malt mixture. Flavor, like the aroma, is a combination of tart hops, sweet malt and honey. Nicely carbonated. Pleasant and refreshing.

Braudog (6198) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 19, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2007 Rerated 3/25/07 ... Deep golden, maybe an orange tinge. Orange-tinged (yes, I’m repeating myself ... hey, I’ve had a few beers) yeasty aroma. The yeastiness carries ... bit of orange, almost a corriander tinge, interestingly flavorful. Not bad.

riversideAK (6040) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Caramel malt aroma with a touch of spicy hops. Pours copper with a thin head. Flavor is slightly sweet caramel malt with a light metallic note. Finishes clean with light citrus.

Suttree (5882) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 11, 2007
I could go into detail of the various characteristics of this beer. You know - caramel and toffee, mild hop bite, blah blah blah. Simply put, this is a well made beer, but so low key so as to be barely noticeable. Nothing wrong, no challenges.

TheBeerGod (5872) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2009
Sample from a bottle in the VIP tent at WBF Raleigh on 5/2/09. Copper pour. Short tan head.Nose is light malt, hops and caramel. Taste is grassy hops, caramel, sweet malt, and light spicy hops. Chewy, medium bodied beer with light carbonation. Ends with more grassy and spicy hops, faint fruit, caramel, and malt notes.
