hopdog (8940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2005 Poured a medium to dark and slightly hazy copper color with an averaged sized off white head. Caramel in the aromas and tastes (stronger in the taste). Other than a trace of hops, not much else going on here. Smooth body.

Ernest (6222) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 2, 2003
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium amber. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, cereal), lightly hoppy (flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, slightly metallic.

PorterPounder (5557) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 17, 2004
Wake me when this one is over. Light copper appearance, little to no head. No aroma whatsoever - I tried. Very muted flavor, slightly medicinal in nature. Perhaps a bit of roastiness - but otherwise pretty bland. Decent mouthfeel. Pass on this one.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 I remember the sweet, malty finish the best. A copper-tone brew with a marginal head and adequate carbonation, it was a scratchy-red mouth-feel, a touch of sweetness. I need to try this again at a later date.

beerguy101 (5286) - Newark, California, USA - DEC 19, 2003
Light red color. Medium white foamy head. Aroma is bready, fruity and sweet. A light to medium bodied red/amber ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are mild and slightly spicy. A little thin bodied, and the malt sweetness sort of predominates the beer. Drinkable, but sort of a middle of the road average amber. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. Finish is clean and smooth.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2005
Lightly hazed amber color with a smallish off white head. Dull malt aromas with a hint of floral hops. No objectionable just plain and boring. Light sweet caramel and mild malt flavors. Some light nut flavors. Just saw this was a irish ale, I would have never guessed. Another american amber I would have wagered. Still to me most ambers are just that, an amber.

Strykzone (4933) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2005
Copper color with a considerable head. Aroma was that of a pale ale but with more sweetness. Hints of citrus. Taste was unique if unspectacular. This is definitely not a great beer, but there are much worse. I scored it pretty much down the middle.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
Pailhead (4820) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2005
Bottle: Aroma of caramel and light hops. Pours a very dark transparent amber with an off-white head that quickly diminishes. Light initial caramel malty is quickly overtaken by a nutty and lightly hoppy finish. A little on the thin side.

nick76 (4221) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Aroma is sweet caramel malt and some yeast but not very hoppy. The Appearance is copper brown with lots of particulates. The flavor is both good and bad. It has some sweet caramel malt taste but also a paper taste. The hops are light. Palate is average and the aftertaste is like sweet carrots.

hotstuff (4096) - Indiana, USA - MAY 22, 2003
This brew poured basically no head. There was no lacing present. The body was red. To me it had a fruity, sweet aroma. It was a smooth drinking brew. There was no bitterness or aftertaste noted.
