Darwenus (487) - Virginia, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Pours translucent brown, like iced pekoe tea. Smells like boiled cabbage. Tastes like any cheap, mass produced adjunct lager, filtered through charcoal. This is piss.

DCLawyer (1312) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle->lager. Clear amber with bare offwhite head. A: nutty, malty. T: sweet malt, some bitter grains. Metallic aftertaste brings down an otherwise surprisingly decent cheap TJ beer.

Braudog (5493) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle. Pretty dark pour for a "Vienna" -- roasty brown; firm standing head. Nutty edge throughout, woody aroma, and drinks with a malty, caramel edge. Pretty even keeled, cleanly made, quaffable. (#5309, 11/3/2013)

TATE (265) - Lubec, Maine, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep amber with a thick off white head. Molasses aroma. Pretty big malt up front with a raisony flavor and hint of hop bitterness at the end. Seems true to style and okay overall.

PorterPounder (5202) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Tallahassee. Fl - Trader Joe’s - 11.2 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, quickly diminishing off-white head. Aroma has some light bubble gum notes, a hint of plastic. Flavor has a hint of nuttiness, some bubble gun sweetness, a touch of pipe tobacco, caramel sweetness in the finish. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Does in a pinch.

Aurelius (3910) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Brown twistoff loooongneck bottle. Clear, ruddy brown beer, thin lacing ivory head. Functional label. Sweetish, fruity malt aroma. A chalky/buffered mouthfeel, biscuity rather than crisp. Lightly sweet, low hopping and acidity (though there were the tannic notes at times), mild dark syrup flavors. Medium body, not overly carbonated, sweetish finish. Trader Joe’s, Tallahassee.

yngwie (12721) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle. It’s a clear, dark amber beer with a dense, off-white to light beige head. The aroma has caramel, some alcohol notes and a touch of dried fruits. It’s lightly sweet on the palate, full to medium bodied and quite soft. Caramel, some dried fruits and a little bitterness in the flavor, mostly sweet in the finish. Certainly not interesting this one, but not bad either. 130810
