Dogbrick (8119) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 6, 2009
Thanks to Rogueone for sharing a bottle at Septoberfest III. The beer pours a dark golden-orange color with a thin and lasting white head. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malt, mildly spiced hops and some bread. Light, crisp body with flavors of pale malt, citrus and a bit of hops. The finish is sweet malt and yeast with a fruity aftertaste. An interesting beer overall, easy to drink with a few different flavors happening at once.

Clear orangey golden body with short white head. Doughy bready aroma with the soft malts in the taste and only medium bitterness.

Gachupines (898) - USA - OCT 5, 2009
Copper hue with an average white head. Aroma is somewhat earthy, malt is prevalent. Flavor is malty and a little sweet. Some hops are noticeable, but the aftertaste leaves a strange bittersweet flavor on the tongue. Overall, fairly average, would not seek it out again.

jb (2187) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 4, 2009
On tap in State College PA while watching PSU demolish Illinois (at PJ Harrigans). Cinnamon, spicy, earthy nose. Yellow orange look, minimal head. Palate is carbonated, malty, has baked bread notes, a bit hoppy for an Okt. Average.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - OCT 4, 2009
3,333 Rating. Bomber. Pours an orange body with an off white head. Apple esters, caramel, bread y with some cracker malts. Sweet malty with a thin body. Some drier yeast notes and lemon zest. Some light floral notes. A bit grainy but still sessionable.

scoth (506) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Pours clear golden-amber, with a one-finger cream-colored head, fine and lasting lacing. Caramel, apple, earthy hop, and biscuit aromas. Thin body, velvety and crisp. Flavors of toast and caramel, with an earthy, grassy finish. Well balanced and drinkable.

ChainGangGuy (4373) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Appearance: Pours out a clear, orange-golden body with a modest, white head. Smell: Sweetish nose of steeped grains with mild, transient notes of lightly herbal hops and plastic bear honey. Taste: Light German maltiness, with the bulk tasting of lightly sweet (with a touch of golden syrup), lightly grainy pilsner malts. Mere hint of breadiness in there as well. Faint hop character with a low amount of clean hop bitterness. Finishes a tad on the sweet side. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Though it’s sweet, I am not sweet on it. I’ve had this one a couple of times and, well, on both instances I was left unmoved and disinterested. That doesn’t mean you won’t love it. So, go out there and love it for the both of us, won’t you?

Ernest (6217) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2009
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is light to medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (orange, apricot), with light notes of dust and metal. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery/syrupy/oily texture, lively carbonation. Not very clean or polished, but it’s mostly harmless. Nice show of restraint from this brewery, at least...it’s neither overly abrasive nor overly hoppy.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2009
Septemberfest. Sample from a bottle thanks to Butters. Light orange, whitish cover. Aroma is corn, husky, grainy. Taste is honey, corn, more grain husks, some caramel. Unpleasant.

hopscotch (9152) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2009
Bottle… Clear golden lager with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. Nice medium-roast malts in the nose – caramel and toffee – a bit lactic as well. Full-bodied and a touch oily with soft carbonation. Well-balanced flavor, but it still packs plenty of malty overtones. Finishes bland, then sort of fades away.
