PorterPounder (5960) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl - Trader Joe’s - 12 oz bottle. Pours a light copper with a soft, slight off white head that leave a thin trail of lacing. Aroma has some light molasses accents, some nuttiness. Flavor leans to the sweet side, some caramel, some molasses notes, a touch of brown sugar. Mouthfeel has a decent texture to it. Not bad.

Bottle split with pat. Pours a hazy reddish amber body with medium white lacing. Aroma is nut and malts. Taste is smooth malt, some notes of nut.

riversideAK (5734) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Nose is somewhat sweet with caramel up front, brown bread, and a touch of grassy, earthy hops. Pours golden amber, thin head, no lace. The flavor is lightly sweet caramel up front, brown bread in the middle, a touch of toast, and lightly spicy hops in the finish. Light and easy to drink. Not bad.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 27, 2005
An acceptable Vienna, although somewhat light on the nose, a mild & sweet bready malt. Thin for the style, it has a light, toasty caramel malt flavor with a hint of earthy hops. Watery finish, although it does look nice, a pale orange with an initially creamy white head. Glad I could buy it as a single.

350 ml bottle from TJs. Copper brown with a fizzy white head. Sweet wheat bread aroma and taste with a slightly brassy metallic finish.

Pailhead (5395) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 21, 2010
Bottle: The aroma is toasty with some caramel and a hint of raisin. The raisin really clashes with the toasty caramel notes. It pours a transparent amber with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film and slightly thicker ring around the edges of the glass. There’s some sporadic thin webbing left behind for lacing. The flavor starts with light-moderate caramel and light toastiness. The finish has notes of raisin and grass. The raisin flavors really seem out of place. Light bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Take away the raisin aroma and flavor and it’s drinkable, though slightly boring. With the raisin flavors, it’s not something I’d buy again.

Suttree (5388) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 23, 2015
Light bronze, with a nice sized sturdy white head. Smells like sweet molasses and toast. Flavor is nicely sweet, with more molasses, some more toast, and some subtle smokey notes. Not bad...

radagast83 (5377) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - AUG 25, 2011
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear amber color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was sweet grains, toffee notes, mostly malt forward. Flavor was caramel, sweet malts, grains. Low on hop notes, but still pretty tasty.

Strykzone (5342) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2008
Tea color with a small head that fades quickly. Aroma is sugary malt and caramel. Flavor is very earthy and bitter. It is like over cooked caramel. More hops than expected. Light pepper spice notes.
