COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Maybe youíre not in the mood for a raspberry flavored, low carb, ice, dry maltsicle, and you certainly arenít in the mood for a Rotgutzen. You are, however, always in the mood for a Pinstripe. Brewed with caramel malts and Liberty hops, the Pinstripe has a slight fruity finish and dance.

Bottle courtesy of Degarth. Aroma light citrus and malts. Poured a hazy amber with a huge foamy head. Flavor was okay, nothing to spectacular, primarily orange peel hop flavor. Palate was okay but finish held on to the orange peel.

Not bad at first, I think, but not great as it warms. Pours deep amber/caramel with a thin film of a head. Hoppy, murky, slightly vegetal nose. Tingling carbonation hides a thinning body. Moderately sweet, flavor of pine cones, graham crackers, iron supplements in chewable vitamins, fresh-cut grass in a field. Only moderately sweet. It ends a little too much on the side of vegetation. Drinkable, though. Thanks Kevin and Lumpy for this souvineer of GABF 2005.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2005
Bottle. Dark body with a thin dense head. Nose-perfume, rather hoppy for an amber ale. Taste-sweet residual hops, apple, pine, some wood. Leaves a sticky sweet aftertaste.

(Bottle, courtesy of Kevin) Pours a clear copper body with a small white head. Aroma of mild hops and caramel. Flavor of malt, caramel, mild hops, a hint of fruitiness, and a bit flat.

If only the beer was as busy as the box it came in. I found the red to be the same as the brown with less aroma, flavor, and mouth feel. I hate to say, but I think this is the miller lite of amber ales. Very boring, uneventfull, watery, little to no malt character, no hop character, not even a perceptive bitterness, is this really beer?

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 9, 2005
Sweet bread, fruit and mild hops int he aroma. Tea colored with a pinky thick white head. Light fruity hops int he fore followed by some mild graininess and then more hops. Not a lot going on, but what there is I found enjoyable and uncomplicated.

PullMeABeer (203) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 4, 2005
Bottle. Pours light amber, thin bubbly head, and very carbonated. Aroma light sweet fruit, a little beady, with a lingering mild citrus hop bite. The somewhat acidic hops presence dominates the flavor, followed by a earthy fruitiness. Very zesty brew, quite refreshing, but somewhat harsh. Light/Medium mouthfeel. All in all it is quite tasty.

copper tan pour with a nice cream colored taupe head. aroma is caramel, sweet sugar, cotton candy like, and malt, luscious malt. nice sweet flavor with some grass on the back side. chocolate notes along with a grape blowpop flavor when you hit the center like taste. an easy drinker that could easily be a staple for me if it was available locally.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2005
Pours a thick, amber/orange with a fast, ecru head that left a little loviní on the glass. Wicked label bumps the appearance up to a "5" (graphix so nice, Iím forced to <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/View-User-18655.htm&g my avatar). Circular aromas run from milk chocolate malts to grapefruity hops to spicy yeast... very well-rounded, Iíd say. Flavor was smooth & rich, hopped like an IPA with caramel-coated goodness to even it out & ending with a hopcit-hit. A helluva brewski.

Pared down review: Wicked circular goodness.

Bockyhorsey (2609) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 21, 2005
Sweet malty aroma. Golden/darker shade of orange to body. Decent head but disipated and good lacing left on glass. Flavor is sweet at first with the hops on the finish. Kind of dry on the palate but not a bad beer.
