Light toffee aroma, color is golden tan... Flavor is cream soda, extremely sweet and poorly balanced... Not a fan

DYCSoccer17 (3320) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 7, 2010
10 ounce sample on tap at the brewpub a couple months ago. Strangely musty aroma with some DMS hints present. A little metallic with some floral hops and light vegetal. Transparent copper body with a medium, small off-white head. OK lacing. Starts a little sweet and fruity with some vegetal flavors in the middle. I also get some lightly toasted cereal. Floral hop flavors come through in the end. Rather pedestrian.

Tap. Pours clear amber with a small, frothy white head with short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is caramel malt, light fruity esters and earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Braudog (5743) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - NOV 3, 2002
Only a light malt aroma. Light amber fortells the watery swill with barest roasted barley. Blech.
