rubbishystuff (1761) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Hazy dark orange look. Big piney hop aroma and flavor. A little herbalness to the hops too. Slightly burn caramel maltiness. Mouthfeel strange at end of sip. Sort of all over the place both a bold hoppy pale ale but also flavors that are all over the place. Serving: Can

944play (340) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - OCT 28, 2008
16oz in weizen glass. Cloudy amber with thick, rocky head. Abundant lacing. Pleasant floral aroma, hints of chocolate and pine. Flavor is totally schizophrenic - dry, resinous, roasty, light caramel, and this totally weird artificial-fruitiness all fight it out. Bizarre and disappointing on a bad day, I guess, novel and inspired on a good one. Burps taste more like that nice aroma.

Canned@Monks Café, Wallingatan, Stockholm. Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is fruits, caramel malts, toffee, grass and some slight notes of herbs. Flavour is fruits, wood, a bit grass and also some rather harsh and dry hayish notes. Also some strange earthy and sugary notes in the finish.

Beershine (5196) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2009
Can, courtesy of GodofThunder?RedlightRedlight? Medium gold with thick head. Smells like a thick and chew heavy and malty mess. Sweet entry with a yeasty finish. Really heavy and chewy. Way too much malt but does have a decent hop character and not altogether bad.

Craft beer from Texas in a can? Cheers! Another double novelty bonus! Hopefully we will get to the point where neither of these things is a novelty but for now, I’m happy w/ a two for one. The pour is quite cloudy bronze orange w/ a head of mixed bubbles which creates some decent patches of lace. Light bodied w/ vigorous carbonation. Bit of hops in the nose but nutty sweet malt asserts itself as well. Malts are up front when tasted but it wanes through the rather dry middle into a pretty assertive earthy bitterness in the finish. Honestly, I’m not sure if this can of beer made the trek from Texas to my mouth in the freshest condition but, as it is, it only shows potential to be a nice, well-balanced and tasty strong pale ale.

heemer77 (5080) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Canned. Light copper colored body with a slightly off white head. The nose is very malty and doughy with a little bit of oranges. Flavors of old bread crust and cheap orange juice concentrate dominate the first drink. Later on, I got some dirty carpet as well as a little bit of almond shell. Drinkable, but this one is a let down as it lacks much hopping or character.
