A very fine OBX beach beer. 7/2002 - had it on tap at Corrolla and Manteo, in the bottle, and from a freshly filled mini-keg (in other words, we really overdid it with the fest last week!). Thin amber body. 1/4 inch head. Thin, sweet and very lightly roasted taste. faintly bitter at the end. Just a nice light chuggable beer.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 8, 2008
Bottle - Amber, fizzy white head. Big aromas of sour caramel toast. Flavor follows suit with nutty sourness and grains. Clearly infected (just like the weizen I had too). Light bodied and thin with a sour metallic finish. This place needs some serious help....

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - NOV 19, 2009
12oz bottle. Poured a clear dark amber color with a two finger whitish head. Aroma brown sugar and mild spice. Taste was more sweet than bitter, with sweet caramel malts and some hop balancing. A strange bitter flavor throughout. Somewhat thin, very carbonated.

pours amber colored with a white head. smell like heinken with some added sweetness to it. taste is smooth and has a little fruity flavor to it. finish is good, leaves you licking your lips. actually this beer is pretty underrated imo. not bad at all

Very forgettable. Color was a nice amber with good head. Aroma is very malty. Falvor and body are disappointng. Very watery. Needs more work.

boto (1828) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - SEP 21, 2004
12oz. bottle: This beer comes out of the bottle a somewhat orangish color. But the head: was it huge. I even had this beer foaming out of the bottle after opening. All of the examples in the sixer were the same. The aroma is somewhat sweet, with notes of caramel and nuts. A somewhat smokey/musty quality to it also. The taste is good: Sweet caramel malt and a little nutty. Good once the head died down.
