j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 16, 2010
On tap at the Blind Tiger’s Victory event. Pours a just barely hazed gold with a large white head. Soft sweet toffee and caramel, a bit of vanilla. Sweet, almost like a cream ale, touch of almost. Nice grapefruit bitterness on the finish.

egajdzis (5336) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2010
Lightly hazy golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of butter, light citrus, herbal hops, nuts, and toffee. Taste of toffee malts, nuts, woody hops, some butter, and sweeter finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 14, 2010
Tap at BT. Pours a medium bright copper with a thin head. Aroma is herbal flowery hops which start out good but there is diacetyl especially as it warms, moderate Belgian spicy yeast character as well. Flavor is bready, creamy malt, toast, light butter in the middle, then grassy and a big bitterness in the end that is slightly harsh. Getting past the butter, it is actually not that bad- still lots of fresh german hops which I like.

On tap at the brewery. Reviewed from notes. Pours a nice light golden color with a white head with nice staying power. Lace rings on the way down. The nose is definitely pretty interesting, with some light caramel and bread notes alongside a bit of citrus and grass. Some floral aspects as well. The taste features more generic malt and less of the more interesting hop aromas. Feel is nice--fairly light body and somewhat dry. Drinks quite well and I like the concept. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-21-2010

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Draught at the Brewery: Aroma of diacetyl, grain, and husk. Poured pale amber/pale yellow in color with a tiny, dense, white head that disappeared except for a film on top of the beer and around the edges. Slightly hazy. Sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of diacetyl, hops, grain, slight spice, slight nuts, and slight toasting. Light to medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Diacetyl, hop, nut, and slight toasted finish is a tad dry. Too buttery!

TomDecapolis (4477) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUL 5, 2010
Tap at Victory. Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a medium bubbly/creamy white head. ARoma of light belgian yeast and citrusy hop character. The yeast and hops came together ok in this one. Not as nicely as the Hallertauer did though.

MrChopin (3280) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Fiery bronze with a ring of cream for a head. Diacetyl, light grass, and faint but husky wheat rule the nose. Flavor has more grain and a tight balance with the resoundingly bitter hop. A nicely carbonated body gives the malt-heavy profile some pomp, much like the others tasted at Victory that day, but the diacetyl is unfortunately all over this one. If this were not the case, I would have slammed another.
