TeamTrappist (830) - jericho, New York, USA - MAY 27, 2013
 Poured a light copper color. Nose had hints of homey and malt. Not very carbonated. Maybe not too fresh. But fairly drinkable with lots of malt in the finish

Had on Draft at the Marriott pool bar in St Thomas. Very bland and average tasting beer, somewhat syrupy. Grain and malt aroma. Easy to drink but nothing great

dinkle50 (1182) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Aroma is pretty spunky on this bottle. Some metal in there too. Medium mouth with a buttery taste which tells me this is a bad bottle. Some metallic notes and hints of citrus in the taste and some grain. Not crazy about this.

solidfunk (5924) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Pours cloudy blond with ok head and lacing. Aroma of mash malt and bread yeast. Taste has some astringency and too much cloying sourness. Tap at brewpub.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Serving: Draft at the brewpub and in 12 oz. bottles. This is another case where your best bet it is to get it on draft at the brewery as the bottles can be suspect at times. It pours a nice gold color with a bright white head. The nose as a light malt and grain note. The flavor reminds me of a full bodied Corona with a little more grain in it. A touch too sweet for my taste. Light to medium body with plenty of carbonation and a clean finish. Not too bad on tap, pretty dreadful in the bottle as you will frequently run into metallic notes.

Drake (11116) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Nikki’s Liquors, Providence. Pours a clear amber color with a thin creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of tinny, herbal notes and pale malty notes. The taste is pale malts, honey, spice, a faint tinny note. Medium bodied. Decent. New country!

Butters (3990) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Sampled at Dan’s after Top of the Hops tasting. Clear pale yellow pour with clearish ring of head. Metallic nose. Faint tinny quality. Tastes the same with a distinct amount of bitterness. Meh. About what you’d expect.

Dfonorow (1741) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Bottle. Pour is hazy yellow with a faint white head. Aroma is of lemons, light malts, and corn grains. Flavor is unfortunately overpowered by corn but there are some remnants of good beer in the background - lemon citrus, wheat grain, and grass.
