Goodgrief (1811) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Bottle best buy 5/12/12 (more than 2months from now). Golden amber pour with fluffy head. Sweet caramel and biscuits. A bit cloying. Not dry or hoppy and should still be good according to the freshness stamp. Disappointing beer from a solid brewer.

Bottle from Half Time. Pours copper with a creamy beige head. Aroma of lightly roasted malt with mild citrus hop. Med body. Flavor is slightly spicy/citrus hop over some refreshing (?) roast malt. It’s decently hoppy, but not particularly bitter. It does fit the winter beer thing.

bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Poured a light copper. Thin body but a big hops bite. Very bitter and not very balanced but a good easy drinking brew. Feels more like an IPA than a pale lager. Nice little bump in the alcohol content also.
