FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Pittsburgh. Sampled on draft this beer poured a dark amber color with a medium sized creamy white head that left great lacing. The aroma was faintly floral and citric with a hint of honey. The flavor was bitter with vague fruity hops, clover honey and faint perfume. The finish was long, bitter, perfumey and had some lingering honey. Medium body. Ok.

tmoreau (2127) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2011
Sampled for a lunchtime stop at the Yorktown brewpub to clear the palate after the Molasses Porter and quesadillas. Showed a hazed straw/light gold, with modest, bubbly white foam, and light, wavy lacing. The aroma was light, zesty fruit, with a touch of honey sweetness. The flavor was as the nose, with light body, some spritz to the carbonation, and a lightly clean and dry finish. A standard but refreshing summer hydrator ale.
