Lubiere (10455) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2009

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2009
(Draught) Pours a hazy golden body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of mustiness, leather, wet hay, light caramel, some peat, and earth. Flavor of grass, earth, tea, peat, and wet wood that somewhat reminiscent of a river stream flowing over moss covered rocks in the mountains. Good steam beer.

DYCSoccer17 (3357) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 14, 2009
Generous 10 ounce sample on tap at the brewpub at RBSG. Spicy, herbal, peppery hop aroma with some light mustiness. Pretty grainy with some cereal, too. Moderately hazy amber body present with a pretty frothy off-yellowish head and nice lacing. Chewy, roasty, biscuity malt start. Lightly metallic, chewy, and a bit of herbal hop to finish. Drinkable, tasty, and good for a "steam" beer.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 3, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Mostly transparent, coppery amber colored body with a finger of fizzy off-white head. Aromas of lightly toasty malt and some mild-moderate minty hops. Low-moderate fruity ester qualities and a faint caraway-like spiciness in the background. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel with a soft, malty texture. Somewhat sweet, lightly toasted malt with a rye-bread flavor profile. A moderate hop presence balances the malt nicely and provides an earthy, minty flavor. Moderate fruity esters provide a subtle red fruit dimension that enhances the malt perception somewhat. Clean and pleasant to drink and showcases all of the stylistic dimensions nicely, but a bit more of an assertive hop character would be nice.
