DrnkMcDermott (2934) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2003
Draft, on premises.A good hop bitterness, though its 38 advertised IBU’s are not much more than their helles. Slightly cloudy dark yellow body under an off-white head with mucho lacing. Finished off with a good, bitter aftertaste. Closer in style to an American ale, as hennes mentioned, though not quite as malty.

Pours a cloudy yellow, no head. Aroma is fruity. Flavor is fruity and malty with low bitterness. This was just ok.

Ferris (8939) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 5, 2015
Draft - Pale malts and some vegative notes. Clear gold with a decent white head. Vegative notes that overwhelm the beer. Not good.

deyholla (8868) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a very hazy gold with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has woody and musty grains with light pine and grass underlying. Flavor is similar with woody grains and a bit of pine and grass bite in the finish.

Tmoney99 (12407) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Draft sample. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate balanced hop and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where just met.

(Tap @ Redwood Lodge, Flint, MI): Dark brown-blackish color. Frothy off-white head. Chocolately roasted, malts. Coffee taste. Some alcohol taste.

Dogbrick (10001) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 10, 2006
Sample at the brewpub: This brew is a cloudy amber/orange color with a thin light beige head that lasts awhile. Sheets of lacing coat the glass. The aroma is hoppy with a surprisingly spicy bouquet. Medium body with a nice combination of floral hops and spices, as well as a touch of fruit. The finish is citrusy hops with a mild lingering bitterness. Pretty good all around.

hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - SEP 6, 2001
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2003 Rerate (Cask): I still find this hop charged, with a quick hit of bitter that the cask conditioning smooths out and extends nicely. Original Rate 9/6/2001: Not to dispute Redwood's label, but this is closer to an American hop-charged pale. It's on the weak side but very quaffable and great for the open-air blues shows that the lodge has on occasion.
