hayduke (3470) - Eureka, California, USA - JAN 7, 2007
Another contract beer for Joes, and again a pretty decent one. Warning: not all are good (see Fat Weasel Pale Ale for a major disaster), This poured an attractive amber wth a light tan head and mild lacing. Nose of malts and caramel, with some chocolate. Mouthfeel lively. Finish nicely bitter. Not outstanding, buat a decent brew.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 3, 2007
Pours amber w/ a shallow, semi creamy froth that quickly recedes to very thin brewers lace. Aromas of grainy malts. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Malt driven w/ a crispy character. Flavors of caramel, and assorted dried fruits. The finish is bittered and crisp w/ an unappealing grainy residual. Uninteresting.

theshocker (329) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 24, 2006
Clear light amber, small head. Malty aroma, caramel with a hint of chocolate. Malty and smooth, nutty, vanilla, caramel. Not too shabby.

mcnally (114) - Burbank, California, USA - NOV 22, 2006
Clear, transparent, cranberry color. LIttle to no head. Aroma of caramel malt. The syrupy mouthfeel destroyed this beer’s appeal for me. Taste is a clean, sweet, caramel malt. Didn’t notice any significant hops. Nontheless, I could see myself buying this again because of the $4.99 per six pack price.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - SEP 14, 2006
Light copper in color, with a thin head. Hop aroma, with a bit of malt. Medium body, with a bit too much malt in the flavor.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 11, 2006
Clear and golden, with a thin white head. Malty aroma, clean, grainy, minor hops. Smooth entry on the palate, if a bit grainy in the mouth feel. Easy drinking, but insubstantial in the flavor department. Thin-bodied, and ultimately unappealing. You can drink it with no trouble, but boring puts it mildly. It’s frill-less and thrill-less to the extreme. Pursue the purchase of this one only if you’re on a restrictive budget.

Ughsmash (7182) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Bottled. Poured clear reddish-orange with a fluffy beige head about as tall as the liquid. Nose was quite yeasty with biscuit and caramel maltage as well... clean and kinda boring, but not bad. Flavor was of smooth pulled caramel, biscuits, and pils malts with herbal bitterness and faint citrus at the back-end. Smooth, lighter-bodied middle with a moderately tart and bitter finish. This was not at all complex, but was most definitely drinkable.

$4.99 a sixer. Pours an amber, nice smelling head. This is excellent for the price. Malty, yeasty with a great bitter kick. Highly recommended. This is basically the Marzen style of Gordon Biersch. Seems fresher and is definitely cheaper, I don’t know how TJs does it. I personally like the Bohemian Lager (GB’s Pilsener) better, but this is top notch.
