COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship beer is 5.5% alc. Deep amber in color, and slightly cloudy, this beer is remarkably smooth. We "dry-hop" this ale in the conditioning tank meaning fresh hops are added after fermentation to steep and add a subtle fruity nose. The yeast for this beer was custom created and cultured for us by a lab in Oregon, insuring a one-of-a-kind experience found in no other micro.

BucannonXC5 (796) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 23, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2011 Poured from a tap into a pint at Lucia’s Wine Bar. Color was orangeish like a Hefe with about an inch of head. The slight lacing held strong throughout. Smelled citrus, mainly orange. Lemon comes in there, too. Tasted orange with some wheat and other kinds of citrus (lemon mainly). Very refreshing, unlike your normal ambers. Mild carbonation. Nice mouthfeel. Very low carbonation and a smooth finish. Not a bad beer overall. I could have had this all night and been fine.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

I appreciated that this was unfiltered, which made it interesting to look at and anticipate, though it’s still an amber, so although it was drinkable and decent, the hops were much less pronounced than the commercial description would have you believe. Bottle. Thanks to Darren for bringing the bottle home with him.

Not the greates amber but not too bad either. Some caramel malts but not much for hops. Pretty basic with some grassy and grainy notes.

Got this from France 44 as an extra to my order. Aroma and appearance are average. Nice malty beer with some heft that doesn’t fade completely into sweetness. A little spice in their as well. A nice BBQ beer for summer in my book.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4785) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange color with some small floaters and a large creamy orange-white that left some lacing. The aroma was nutty caramel with undertones of butterscotch, wood and vague tangy fruits. The flavor was sweetish nutty caramel and light fruity hops. Long finish, medium body. Decent.

cheap (3943) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2011
From a bottle. Yea, fruity almost floral aroma, sweet like some flowers and olfactory goes cloying aftera few moments. Cloudy light iced tea color. Strong malty initial alky flavors. Smooth on the palate, very little co2. If this is a amber ale, its a little different fer sure. Difficult at times for this lager lover. Finish is a little tuff to deal with.

The Dan Journal #454. Tasted 2/26/11. 12oz bottle. Filtered with a golden amber hue. Off-white head. Aromas of caramel sweet breads and toasty malts. Medium to full bodied with a nice caramel malty sweetness, off-set by soapy citrus hops. This was tasty!
