COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Neolithic humans evolved from nomadic hunters into a more settled agricultural society, changing life forever. The Ďfounderí crops they raised included wheat and barley. It is little surprise that the first examples of brewing appeared during this age. Brewers owe much to the epoch. Similarly, we thank our farmer friends of today for cultivating the ingredients the are responsible for the beers we now enjoy. Their laborious days spent ourdoors under the hot sun earn them respect, as well as a mark of distinction: the farmerís tan. Yes, the inevitable red and white hallmark of hard work.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 24, 2010
Pours gold with a lasting, white head. Smells of perfume, dry malt, floral notes, earthy. Tastes of caramel, spice, pepper, crisp, resiny finish.

halfonit (1150) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 23, 2010
On tap at Battleship Brewhouse. Has a dark golden color. Aroma is of hops, citrus, caramel, and some other fruityness. Flavor is very hop forward, with some citrus, earthiness, pine, and oak. Finish is full of citrusy hops. Very well done.

dmac (3892) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 23, 2010
22 oz bomber from Spirits RB. Poured a clear thin light tangerine orange with an average sized white tight foamy head. Aroma of grains and citrus that started off with lots of hops but ad those fade more wet bread, alcohol and even a hint of cake batter emerges. The body has an overly lively feel about it that causes it to foam up once it passes your lips. A nice smooth finish with only a trace of the 9% ABV. Flavor is mostly grains and cereal with some alcohol coming out. Ahh the more I concentrate on this one the more let down I become.

17thfloor (2429) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2010
Bottle. Yikes, I wasnít so sure about dropping the $ for this after seeing some of the reviews. Pours a clear bright golden with a small fizzy sticky sudsy head. Aroma is lightly rich, corn, touch grassy and biscuity, hint of warming alcohol. First taste is actually quite pleasantly bitter and grassy, nice noble bitterness, nice wheat taste that seems to add a needed complexity, whereís the 9%, then it becomes just a bit rich and cloying, some warming alcohol but not really that noticeable, does taste just like an imperial pale. Medium bodied, the has sparkling carbonation and seems to get just a bit syrupy at times, still drinkable.

Nephilium (1309) - Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2010
Slight grassy aroma, with a hint of pine in it. Pours a clear golden with a white quickly fading head, that leaves spotty lacing at best. Taste wise, thereís a touch of alcohol burn in this one, some grain notes, and a bitter finish. Itís drinkable, but far too expensive ($7) for the taste.

adrian910ss (2317) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2010
22 oz bomber. Pours a clear liquid orange gold with a large sized foamy off white head. Aroma of light lemon, wheat, yeast and grass. Taste of light zesty lemon, yeast, wheat, barley and grass notes.

ALCOHOLNIZM (164) - WARWICK, Alabama, USA - JUN 21, 2010
I WOULD EXPECT A REDISH BEER WITH A THICK WHITE HEAD ON THIS SO CALED "FARMERS TAN" BREW, INSTEAD ITS A GOLDEN BREW WITH A FOAMY WHITE HEAD AND NOT MUCH AROMA. CRISP GRASSY TASTE WITH A BIT OF SWEETNESS MUCH LIKE AN IPA. NOT THIS BREWERS BEST NOR THEIR WORST.

Braudog (5576) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2010
Bottle. Bright gold with a bubbly white head. The aroma is strong, but primarily of starch and corn. This drinks with a distinct and stark malt base, rich and sugary. But itís still exceptionally drinkable. Pretty scary for a 9% beer! (#3924, 6/20/2010)

thornecb (4291) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 20, 2010
Pours clear gold into a shaker. Bright white head bubbles and quickly recedes to coat surface. Sweet alcohol aromas. Thick with upfront bready caramel turning slightly cloying in the lasting alcohol finish.

envane (567) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2010
Pale gold colour, bready aroma. Syrupy palate with sweet malts. Hoppy finish but not enough to make it interesting, If I were a farmer who just put in 12 hours out in the fields, Iíd want a refreshing 5% pilsener not this sludgy stuff.
