jredmond (6383) - Manhattan, New York, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Blipp at James’s November 2012 tasting. Aroma is sweet spice, light fruit and malt. Mouthfeel is carbonated and thin with notes of spice, light fruit, wheat, malt, eh - not terrible but pretty bland.

PorterPounder (6284) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarkets - Killearn - 12 of bottle. Pours a murky dark orange-brown with a thin off-white head that clings to the edge of the glass. Aroma is somewhat neutral with some brief chocolate and chili-like spice. Flavor is somewhat muddled, but interesting. Pick up some chocolate notes, some chipotle-like pepper spice and just a hint of bubble gum. Mouthfeel is thick enough, Better than expected.

Braudog (6024) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours an odd-looking, murky reddish brown color, and what little head appears almost instantly dissipates. Not much aroma. This drinks with a weird combination of flavors -- drinking almost like a soda, with a sweet cola-like essence up front. There’ s a musty, malty bit behind that. It’s all a bit muddied to me, and doesn’t come off that well. (#4827, 11/22/2012)

thirdeye11 (5816) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 30, 2012
(12oz bottle thanks to Dixonian) clear medium amber, wispy bubbles. Nose of wheat, chocolate malt, banana, doesn’t smell half bad. Taste is just ok, banana, wheat, chocolate malt, dry grain, palate finish is just ok, and leaves a less than pleasant taste behind.

onceblind (5692) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Pours out a gorgeous hazy amber with a nice sized foamy white head. Faint but delightful nose of dark caramel, earthy wheat and some sort of near-chocolate malty sweetness like a dunklewiess. Flavor is a little too light, but tastes of dark sweet wheaty malts, light blonde cereal grains, a little pale cocoa, and a dry finish. Not terrible, but I just can’t reccomend this to anybody except those who already drink Shock Top.

Strykzone (5602) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Brown and opaque. It smells a little like chili. Not much chili flavor. It is kind of muddled. Not great.
