DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2009
Draft at Craft Ale. Pours deep copper with off-tan head. Nose is a bit odd, some caramel malt, brown sugar, malpe syrup, and I swear I got BBQ sauce from the nose here. Tastes malty, a bit sweet, with caramellly malt, brown sugar, some BBQey meaty notes, and honey. Smooth, but this one would give a beer judge fits.

Draught at Capone’s: Aroma is sweet and smells of fruit, light strawberries, light caramel, slight molasses. Poured copper/light amber in color with large, creamy, dense, off-white head that lasted throughout. Hazy. Lightly sparkling. Very good lacing. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of molasses, malts, sugar, and light tar. Medium body. Lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Sweet, medium-dry finish.

On cask, low carbonation, copper color, minimal head and lacing. Strong molasses flavor, mixed with caramel malt. I wanted to like this, but it didn’t leave me too impressed. Oh, and this is surely not an "American pale ale".........rather, maybe something more along the lines of an English best bitter/session ale.

Kennett Square Brewfest 2008. No notes; faint taste of brown sugar and roasted malts. This was early in the day, so the cumulative effect was low - I just wasn’t too impressed.

On tap at the KSBF ’08. I give it to River Horse for their orginality at the Kennett Brew Fest. After they ran out of their Ant beer, they popped open their Green Tea and this beer. Poured a medium and cloudy amber color with a small sized head. Aromas of, well burnt sugar (I wonder if I would have picked that out in a blind tasting!), citrus, maple sugar, and toasted grains. Tastes of roast, toasted grains, maple, and citrus.
