OldGrowth (2906) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Bottle, at the Freakin Frog. Ok nose, caramel, citrus,floral. Clean reddish copper color. Small to no head. Bitter sweet flavors, same as aroma, but more pronounced. Thinner body, little creaminess. Bitter dryish finish. Tasty pale ale. Traditional though. Nice to try since it doesnít make it to Boston.

drewbeerme (3897) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2007
12oz bottle thanks to kmweaver for this extra. pours amber with creamy white head. nose is doughy malt and some citrus and peppery hop notes. flavor is malty at times almost harsh, lacks much of a hop presence otherthan a crisp finish. just decent stuff.

mattmc1973 (478) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - MAY 26, 2008
12 oz bottle, pours deep amber with beige foamy head, which mostly dissipated and left mild lacing. Aroma of malt and hops, similar to Arrogant Bastard, but milder. Taste of bitter hops, mouthfeel a bit watery, but smooth. Is a decent pale ale, but not as great as I would have expected, since Iím a fan of Arrogant Bastard/Double Bastard. Just OK.

hoppopotamus (260) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - JUN 6, 2008
A nice looking copper red beer with a small head. The aroma is a mild hoppiness, with floral and spicy notes. The flavor is mostly malt with a bit of hop bitterness. A bit thin in the mouthfeel. Not offensive in any way, but not intense in any way. Iím a much bigger fan of the IPA, ruination, or arrogant/double bastard.
