fidelis83 (1997) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Cloudy gold pour with a 2 finger, creamy, bright white head. Aroma is cereal, super bready yeast, a little toffee, tons of semi-sweet grainy character, almond-like sweet nutty notes, light floral hops. Flavor is very bready, loaded with cereal notes, a little corn, light nutty notes and some light citrus and fruity notes coming in at the end. Light to medium body, super creamy entry, drying out some toward the finish with a light carbonation and slight chalkiness coming in toward the finish. Good stuff, not worth the $7 bomber, by any means, but pretty good.

Gold poured into a SS lager glass. Gold creamy head. Sweet refined grainy citrus, bready. Smooth lightly buttery. Taste is pretty good its creamy lightly buttery bready/crackery,light-medium sweetness. Creamyness is pretty rich really. Pretty good steam beer. Wouldn’t say its really light bodied though.

CloakedDagger (700) - - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle 65 cl. Pours a clear, pale yellow with a small and lacing, white head. Sweet, malty body, a very clean maltiness with some pleasant, flowery hops. Very subdued bitterness. Could’ve been mistaken for a top notch fresh, German Helles. Very quaffable. 081114

Bulk_Carrier (2224) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - NOV 1, 2014
I had this at a bottle share here in Juneau. This was poured actually into a tulip, forgive me for not having it in proper glassware. Anyways, here’s the rest. The appearance was a nice looking somewhat hazy to transparent golden to yellow bronzed color to it. A decent small yet slight carbonation clears the body nicely. The smell had a nice sweet sticky and somewhat corn to wheat blended and slight citrus on the back end of it. The taste followed the nose nicely as it kept a subtle flavor of sweet malty corn and a light flavoring of caramel to back up nicely. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat subdued but mostly subtle, still no qualms. I say good for the most part. Overall, I say this was a pretty decent California Common I could have. Me, I’m just glad to have something by them in the last Frontier.
