Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours hazy copper with a thin white sparce head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, and toast. The flavor is thin, weak, sweet, bitter, and citrusy. Watery body.

Goodgrief (1762) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAR 23, 2008
Oct. 2007 - Orange brown pour with almost no head or lacing. Chunky yeasties in the bottom. Flavor was light caramel, sweet with a bitter/sour finish. There were also some notable citrus aspects, sweet overripe grapefruit. Very disappointing from a brewer that I love their other offerings....

bubbleflubber (1743) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - FEB 25, 2006
Hugely sweet and earthy nose; pours clear light oak into the glass, with a diminished head, leaving soft spider lace. Very invested in caramel malt, with a swift bitter back that leaves the palate not thin, but also not full. I don’t find it initally cloying at all, as some other raters have inferred. This could change, however, if I made it a session beer. For me, it’s good, and definitely one to remember again in the future... Good brew overall.

Bottle. Ugh! This was terrible. Not well balanced with a terrible granny smith apple taste to it.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - OCT 20, 2006
(Bottle from Tully’s) Seems kind of uninspired...Pours slightly hazy slightly orange golden with three fingers of off white head. Head forms some globs on surface after receding. Aroma initially bready but when head recedes there’s only a very light trace of caramel and perhaps some sour. Mouthfeel a little rough, lightly prickly, medium-body. No real lacing. Flavor is kind of weakly malty with a hint of sour citrus. Lightly bitter finish. Really seems more like a helles than a Vienna. This could be an older bottle based on the overall lackluster flavor, globs on the surface and light sour notes.

Darkover (1512) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2004
Golden color with a small white head. Weird caramel/butterscotch aroma and flavor.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JUL 19, 2006
Bottle - Poured a golden amber n color with a very thin white head that faded very quickly to almost nothing. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of caramel and hops; although nerither is very pronounced. Flavor is slightly hoppy with also some malty sweetness. Finish is lightly bitter with some lingering sourness. An OK beer, but certainly nt my favorite

guzzler67 (1490) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 28, 2004
Clear gold with a tiny head and zero lacing. Aroma did not contribute to the overall enjoyment; malts, maybe. Smooth, sweet flavor that worked well in washing down some pizza, but not something I would break out to impress friends or family. Cute pooch on the label, though.

pinkzambia (1427) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 12, 2006
Bottle: Clear gold color with a extremely quickly diminishing head. Corny and malty sweet aroma. It has an astringent taste with honey that wishes I had the Thirsty Dog Siberian Night. Not that good -- but thanks anyway, BuckeyeBoy.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 4, 2006
Bottle. Pours hazy gold, off white head. Aroma is malt and caramel. Flavor is caramel, vanilla, sugar, malt. This is way too sweet.
