SpringsLicker (3121) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 27, 2009
Hazy orange/copper color with a tall, creamy off-white head. Fruity malt aroma. Sweet, lightly bittered. Rather simple and one-dimensional.

Malty aroma. Flavor was underwhelming. Might improve with some age. Considering other American Strongs I’ve had, it wasn’t too impressive.

zappafan99 (463) - ASCENSION ISLAND - MAR 23, 2009
Taste 3/9 bottle. Looks: Light brown murk with a thin tan top. Aroma: Liquid bread, grain and malt heavy with a yeasty and mild citrus in the background. Taste: Just like the aroma. Very much like wheat bread with a nice spice and pine in the finish. One of the best S. Carolina beers I have had.

hopscotch (8893) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Bottle… Murky, caramel-colored ale with a small, wispy, off-white head. Fruity, caramely aroma. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Good balance. Reserved caramel sweetness; moderate grapefruit pith bitterness. Lengthy, crisp, lightly bitter finish. Thanks go out to growler for shipping this bottle!

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 9, 2009
12oz bottle courtesy of kinz. Beer from new state for me so special thanks pal. Aroma of a malted cany like a candy carinival apple. Copper body with off white head and mild lacing. Sweet malted caramel and the dry hoppy finish of an IPA. Smooth and easy on the palate for a strong ale. Ahhh...

argo0 (11349) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 5, 2009
(12oz bottle, thanks CaptainCougar) Small off-white head atop cloudy amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel/butterscotch, orange, some grapefruit. Taste is moderately sweet, pine/grapefruit, caramel, some toffee, light orange. Medium-full body, some stickiness.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 15, 2009
2008 Bottle - Thanks CaptainCougar! - Pours hazy copper with a small off white head...aroma is faint citrus and pine, sweet malt...flavour is okay balanced front end bitters and caramel malt, finishes with a lingering hoppiness... not very complex and not incredibly well put together, but still fun to try...

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Bottle: Hazy deep orange with a dense off white head. Hops are prominent in the aroma, with some pale malt sweetness and grassy character. Light & creamy on the palate. Grassy, lightly catty hops with resiny bitterness. Simple overall.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 12/20
CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 4, 2009
Pours a clear bright copper orange with a thin, spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of grapefruit and orange with some sticky caramel sugar. Body starts with good fullness and sweet caramel honey character balanced with a heavy citrus bittering hoppiness before a drier, slightly warming finish. Could be a little cleaner and better balanced, but still a decent brew.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2009
Poured a hazed amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of oranges and aged malt with some piny notes. Fruity malty flavor with a bitter finish. Light-medium body.
