Itzjerm (999) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - FEB 14, 2013
1 year after bottling. Nice mild hop aroma, very obvious very enjoyable. Taste is a combination of sweetness and earthy hops. Nothing bitter here. A very drinkable brew. Very very good like most Southern tier brews. The head is perfect really long lasting and correct retention. Nice mouth feel...proud I found this one. Flavors are pinapple and earthy hop bitteness. A bit cloudy but countred by great head.

yngwie (12721) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. It’s a more or less clear one, dark golden in color and with a small, white head on top. Piney, grapefruity aroma with a lot of malty sweetness. Quite sweet on the palate, full-bodied and with a little warmth. Bitter.flavor, both initially and in the end. Nice carbonation too. Pine cones, caramel sweetness and some citrus in the flavor. Bitterness, citrus and pine cones blend nicely with the maltyness in the end. Nice. 130119
