Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice clear sparkling copper with a nice lasting white head and good lace. Aroma is lightly sweet caramel and crackery malts, lightly toasted bwheat bread, and some earthy and slightly peppery hops. Flavor is clean, nice toasted malts, biscuity, light caramel flavor, nice crisp bitterness, a bit herbal and slight grass. Crisp and nice finish- good vienna/mexican amber lager.

Good stuff. A very solid, light Amber lager. Thin pour, with almost no head. Tastes of caramel roast, and has a very light bittery clean finish.

Thanks to Dandman629 for hooking me up with this. Interesting aroma of popcorn, almost like Kettle Corn. Pours a slightly cloudy amber color with some slight honey orange tones thrown in the mix. Flavor is composed of a fruity dryness. Hints of strawberry & citrus as well. Overall this suprised me. More complex than expected. A quality brew.

Pours a copper-orange, with a medium sized, off-white head. Lots of caramel malt in the aroma, with notes of hops and hay. Flavors is very clean, with caramel and toasted malts. Finishes clean with crisp. Overall, well put together, and one of my favorite "drinking" brews. Nothing to complex, or over done!

Grabbed a few 12 oz’ers for Buddy Steve, the Braveheart Beer Mister Celticbrew, and the regularly panegyrized Drbayern. Jomo poured a light amber color with a fair head that disipated too quickly. It did lace well though. The aroma was too mild for me, but the hop flavor made up for that, though not over powering or harsh. The maltiness in the taste was very good.

Yellowish pour. White head. Grainy aroma but not all bad. Some faint hops too. Flavor is grainy, malty and slightly hoppy.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2011 Bottle. Poured a murky orange in color with a small white fizzy head that was fully diminishing and had poor lacing. The aroma was of sweet malts with a light citrus hop scent. It tasted bitter and rather malty at first and finished with a nice biter-sweet hoppy flavor that stuck around on the taste buds for and average amount of time. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body with and creamy yet dry texture with a soft carbonation. Overall a great lager with a nice mix of maltiness and bitterness.

(Old BA rate - bottle) Poured with a fairly generous finger of creamy white head; pretty solid retention and some lacing; lightly hazy light orange-rust color. Lightly malty; nutty; bit of yeastiness. Maltiness shows up first; a little earthy; pretty clean and basic. Mediumish MF; a little carbonation sneaks in but would have expected some more interesting feel to it; just kinda slid by without much notice. Pretty good as it tasted solid and was refreshing enough. Overall, not a bad brew at all and I could see this as a macro-drinking friend converter

(most recently, @ hat factory, RVA) light coppery bronze hue. fizzy. white to off-white head. decent maltiness, but not much complexity. then again, it’s not exactly going for complexity, either. some nice, crispy bready/cracker taste with enough hops to balance but not much more. way more presence here than any of the typical lagers out there, but not the depth of character of some of the better micros or imports.
