UDBeernut (1855) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Had on tap at cole's trying to brighten spirits after being let down at pearl st. Pours translucent amber with small off white head. Nose is nice of malt and flowers, add citrus. Taste follows in fashion with a solid body. A few of these and i am back to my happy place. Horray!

ROGUE (2127) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 10, 2013
On tap at brewpub (2/12). Pours a clear copper color with a soapy white head that leaves light lacing. Aroma of buttery toffee, fresh bread and caramel. Taste is toffee and caramel, and light toasted malt with a strongly bitter earthy, slightly piney hop presence. Finishes with a drying hop bite and underlying flavors of toffee and hops. Mediun bodied, moderate carbonation, dry finish.

boxofrane (2258) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Draft at lucky lab. Pours hazy copper with a finger of white head. Aroma is on the citrus side with a good bit of grapefruit. Taste is lightly bitter with a dry finish. Pretty good but not their best.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Draft at Phoenixville. Pours hazy gold with white clingy head. Nose is floral hops, pale malt, some white peppery spice. Tastes fruity, floral, with mid-palate white peppery notes and a complex, crisp finish. This one gets fruitier and more ffloral as it warms, and the hops and a combination of tropical citrus and floral spicy.

Goodgrief (1813) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Pale golden color, white frothy head. Very mild aroma. Has the malt backbone of a golden ale. Very hoppy...finishes with a "zingy" hop, almost like a saaz variety...grassy. I liked it.
