Love the OutKast inspired name, but the beer was just kinda meh. Pours a hazy dark amber with an average white head. Scent is grass, honey, and light citrus. Hop punch is weak. Earthy light sweet flavor. Medium light body. Source Unknown

Bottle picked up at SL... Taste is average at best. I am not sure how fresh this is considering I had this in late of Feb of 2014 and it was probably brewed in late 2013... But it has a nice bitterness/malt body but if you are looking for a fresh hop this falls short..... again, I would like to point out the fact this may be close to 6 month old. Body is medium..... overall, nothing to write home about.... chime in, if you think different

Bottle. Pours a copper color with white head. Herbal, grassy, hoppy aromas. Grassy, herbal, sweet corn flavors. Probably not as fresh as it could be.

Decent brew. Pours clear amber with a thin head. The aroma has a bit of floral hops with some sweet malt, not much aroma at all. The flavor is nicely bitter with the hops dominant. A sweet malt base is quickly overwhelmed. The finish is dry with a bit of pepper.

Draft at Iron Monkey. Pretty obviously old. Sweet malts, fruity hops, toffee, low bitterness. I don’t know why this was still on draft. Not good.

Obviously an older bottle. It is stale, herbal, unfortunately i got to tick this one too late, don’t buy it if you still see it somewhere and dont trade for it.

BeerandBlues2 (9094) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours clear dark amber with a small, frothy beige head, medium to short retention with good lacing. Aroma is toast and cookie malt, dates, nutty malt, earthy, herbal, and light pine hops with pear and apple esters. Flavor is moderate toast and cookie malt with medium hops and moderate bitterness, light candied fruity esters and a sweet finish. Medium to full body and medium carbonation.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Foresty and floral hoppiness dominates this lightly caramelized Harvest Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the misty amber.
-The floral character takes more and more room as the pint warms up.
-Malts aren’t very well developed; a few sugars and that’s it.
-The leafy hop bitterness is smooth for the style.
-This might have been bolder a month or two ago, but it cannot have had more clarity.

Bottle.

Bomber from Beer Run. Pours a clear amber color with a thin frothy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of caramel malts, floral hops, some citrus notes. The taste is toasted malts, caramel, bitter citrus and pine hops. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness.

From a bottle. Pours hazy copper brown with a bubbly, frothy, off-white head and decent lacing. Tastes like hops, citrus, floral. Dry feel. Light body and low/medium carbonation. Smells malty, nutty, like caramel and toffee.
