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.

Not much going on here...very little nose of any kind. Light, bland, thin flavors...some lightly roasted malt...virtually no detectable hop bitterness. This is really a pointless waste of calories for me. Love the label art, though.

Found this one bottled in Belvidere, Illinois. A great amber ale, in my opinion. Deep reddish-brown clear pour with a thin white head, maltiness in the nose and balanced with some apple, pear, and hops. I thought this was the best one of the night from this brewer.

Clear amber to bronze in color. Moderate dark taupe head. Decent lace. I think I have figured out that grapefruit and husky grain to not mix, smells more like corn silage. Fruity pale ale qualities in the flavor profile. Gooseberries, with mild pale malt and syrupy caramel come to mind. Itís odd that they state "not in the mood for a raspberry flavored", yet this is quite sweet with some berry qualities.

thegreenrooster (3533) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 17, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2005 Pour is a amber red with a nice hazyness. Aroma is very nice. Lots of malts and the hops really stand out. Flavor is slight citrus and some malts used. Overall kinda tasty and prob one of the best from this brewer.

steview (1036) - Petaluma, California, USA - DEC 13, 2005
for some reason, yeaup, it tastes like a red ale--i guess. i like this more than killians, i guess thatís for sure... but what is this? itís caramel, and a bit nutty, with a dead hop berry burst. if this had a primarily medicinal quality, i would have mistaken this for a bad fruit beer.

argo0 (12115) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 26, 2005
(12oz bottle, bottled August 2005) Crystal clear amber body with small beige head. Aroma is moderately sweet, berry, orange. Taste is moderately sweet, berry, melon, caramel. Watery light-medium body. A bit too sweet for my liking.

Firemoose15 (567) - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2005
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.

Nuffield (3835) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 5, 2005
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.

bu11zeye (12268) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2005
(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.
