argo0 (11636) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 18, 2003
Apple juice body topped by small white head. Aroma is sweet, malty toffee. Taste is moderately sweet, toffee, with just a hint of earthy bitterness. Light body. Nice summer brew, though it's unusual to find one steeped in toffee.

12oz bottle-pours a thin white head and yellow color. Aroma is musty grain, secondary light/fruity (saaz?) hops. Taste is musty yeasty/grain, secondary light/grassy hops, fruity-raspberry. OK but not memorable. Good effervescence.

hopscotch (9518) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2006
Bottle at the Hagerstown Suns Beer Tasting... Mostly clear yellow ale with a small, fizzy white head. Both the aroma and flavor are sweet and grainy with specks of hay, orange blossom honey and herbal hops. Light-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and less-than-medium carbonation. Sweet finish.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2004
Average at best. Pours pale yellow, with aroma of some hops and honey. Tastes and finishes with some hops and citrus. Forgettable.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 31, 2005
Pours gold with the smallest trace of a white head. Smells of hay, straw, and cinnamon. Tastes of flowers but again roasted malts with a nutty finish shine through.
