arminjewell (9262) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of slight grass, some hints of earth, touch of watery hay, odd and off. Taste was grass, biscuit, some earth, slight watery husk, finishing slightly dry.

Tap @ Shadows. Pours a Clear dark golden appearance with a white head. Cracker malty, a bit herbal, a bit woody, bland, hop less aroma. Sweet grainy, unfermented mash flavor with minimal hops with a bit house twanginess.

rbrant (1) - Carpenter, Wyoming, USA - MAY 25, 2013 does not count
Weak in the hop department with some form of biological off-flavor I can’t quite place. Very non spectacular.

DiarmaidBHK (4239) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Draft at brewpub. It looks like a normal beer. It pour yellow with No head. Doesn’t smell like much. It tastes fucking, fucking nasty. There’s a slight hop presence but mostly it’s like this green apple thing. Just fucking nasty. What kind of sick evil fucking mind wound foist this on people. Just fucking dire.

jb43 (1650) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2010
(draft at the brewery, 5/21/10). Light copper color, with light cloudiness. Small off white head. Aroma and flavor of acetaldehyde (green apple) that is overwhelming throughout this beer. They seemed to have this problem with all their in-house beers.

aracauna (3511) - Georgia, USA - JUN 9, 2009
There are hops in this one, perhaps as noticeable as the hops in the ESB, but more citrusy in this beer. Still the malt profile isn’t as interesting and this beer ends up being the middle of the road in their sampler.
