Bottle from Jungle Jims. Pours a clear orange amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted pale malts, light caramel, floral hops, a hint of citrus with mild plus bitterness to the finish. A touch better than I expected.

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 (5881) - 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.

riversideAK (5727) - 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.
