A little thin bodied and odd to find in a can, but worth a try. I don’t know about the price, but it (the beer) was pretty good.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5095) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2010 I first rated this one 11/21/06 and had what I believe was an infected beer because it was very off and awful. Now I am rerating a new can. This beer poured a dark red-caramel color with a huge foamy tan head that produced good lacing. The aroma was sweet with caramel malt and faintly fruity. The flavor was tangy with notes of chocolate, caramel, faint cherries and fig and had a light sour and bitter undertone. The finish was medium length, tangy, bitter and had faint notes of caramel and vague fruits. Medium body and rather smooth. Decent.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 14, 2006
An almost clear, dark brownish amber colored beer, which shows bright reddish amber hues when held up to the light. Poured from the can it forms an initially two-finger thick, light tan color. Crap! Buttery notes of diacetyl greets my nose from the get go. Underneath this is a dry, toasty malt character that leans towards biscuit notes. Unfortunately all I can think of is movie popcorn, though I will admit the aroma is not yet rank.

Lightly sweet, and definitely malty up front. After my first sip the diacetyl flavors are not too bad, though they do seam to pick up as time goes on. As long as I don’t inhale as I take a sip the diacetyl remains at a reduced level. There are some toasty malt notes of caramel and biscuits noticeable as well. I get the sense that this would be a decent Dunkel if the diacetyl was in check. I think it might need a bit more maltiness, but it is hard to tell. As the beer warms my taste buds become diacetyl soaked and it becomes a bit more drinkable. There is a decent maltiness here that is really nice. Without the diacetyl this might even be an outstanding lager.

Can from Jeff (doclock) Thanks! Pours out a murky brown color without much head. Smell is rich and malty with some bread notes. Taste is kind of thick and yet watered down at the same time. Not near as good as the other cans, but still its pretty drinkable.

This is a pretty boring beer. Tastes like toasted wheat bread. Thin mouthfeel.

On tap at the Royersford location. Poured a medium to deeper reddish/orange (almost brown) color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, nuts, light roast, and some toffee. Tastes of pretty much the same. Malty.
