riversideAK (5560) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Piney herbal hop notes on the nose, a touch danky. Caramel malt sweetness as well. Pours amber with nice head retention and sticky lace. The flavor is mostly caramel malts, - moderate sweetness and pine, dank, and some grassy bitterness. Rather hoppy and a much different hop profile then I was expecting. Drank easily.

Light amber with a frothy head. Cascade hop smell with a light herbal sweetness. Decent taste of biscuity malts and, mildly bitter herbal hops. Has a mostly dry, lightly bitter finish. Not bad.101606

Lemony aroma. Nice light palate. Pleasant hoppiness/floral balance with just the right bitter edge at the end. Best of theirís I tried. Good beer.

Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2005 Pouring a reddish copper color with a brief lived head, this has a pleasant, bitter orange hop aroma. Itís watery, light-bodied. The flavor is fine, light caramel malts with a nice orange rind hop balance, but it is very, very mild. I think the TK folk need to take bigger chances with this and their other beers.

Cask version. Medium brown color. Small white foamy head. Aroma is sweet, with a touch of floral hops. A medium bodied pale ale. Malts are fruity and sweet, with a touch of caramel. Hops are grapefruity and floral. Soft carbonation, round full mouthfeel. Nice balance. A touch dry in the finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

PorterPounder (5199) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 4, 2006
Market Square Liquors, Tallahassee, Fl. - 12 oz bottle. Light copper pour, thickish, creamy off-white head that leaves a good coating of lacing. Patented pale ale aroma - slightly floral - kinda fruity - hint of pine, somewhat fresh - decent - more English than American definitely. Flavor has some subtle caramel hints, a bit of white grapes and some toffee. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Pleasantly surprised.

heemer77 (5080) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 19, 2006
Poured with a cloudy light amber color. The head was slightly off white. The aroma was soapy with some oranges. There was also some light flowers. The taste had some grapefruit along with a little bit of toffee. There was a strong grapefruit finish. More hops than I expected. There is also a little bit of bread crust. A decent EPA.

TheBeerGod (5047) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 26, 2005
Bottle. Lightly hazed amber. Medium frothy cream-colored head. Nose is lightly hopped with notes of sweet malts, some notes of warm bread, and light citrus notes. Taste is citrusy hops, sweet malts, light spiciness and earthiness. Mouthfeel is dry at the finish. Medium carbonation and a leaning toward light body. Finish is odd. I could swear I taste mint, dry malts, citrusy hops, light hay and bread. The mint/herbal note is throwing me for a loop. Itís different and sort of out of place, but not annoying. Decent.
