Ernest (6597) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2002
Standard draught. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (cookie), moderately hoppy (resin), moderately yeasty (sweat). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, heavily bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Didnít care too much for the yeasty/resinous aroma, but the flavor balance was terrific.



Rating: 4 3 8 3 12 = 3.0

Rating: 8 3 5 2 13 = 3.1



Odd results...loved the cask versionís aroma, didnít like acidity...loved the standard versionís flavor profile, but didnít like the aroma. Arrrgh. Averaged the score here, which was easy considering the net score was nearly identical.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2007 Bottle (12oz). Hazy amber-orange, small creamy-fizzy diminishing white head (3-). Sweetgrass and herbal hops, very light toast malt - not much there. Soapy malt tastes with stale weedy bitterness - the bitterness increases and emerges as sharp UK-style hops with a light apricot fruit accompaniment. Light body, incredibly astringent - like strong black tea, bitter teeth-coating aftertaste. Not too bad.

PorterPounder (6049) - 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.

Braudog (5975) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 6, 2002
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.

riversideAK (5738) - 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.

Cornfield (5570) - 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.
