Leighton (9848) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle on the road to Hill Farmstead, consumed somewhere in MA. Pours clear amber, lightly effervescent with a moderate, off-white foam head. Lots of toasty, sugary malts in the nose, some caramel. Medium sweet flavor, more caramel ntoes, some orange, bread, very low bitterness. Light to medium bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Sugary malt finish, creamy caramel, toast, very light pine. Pretty basic stuff.

Drake (7945) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 20, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Nikki’s Liquors, Providence. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of sweet berry-like fruit with caramel malts. The taste is caramel malts, stone fruits and faint hop note. Medium bodied, slight bitterness, low carbonation. Decent.

Spelt (231) - East Kingston, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Cider and toffee aroma with some floral hop. Pours clear copper with a fizzy tan head. Decidely sweet. Again with strong toffee and apple character. Some bitterness on the finish. Thin body. A little cloying.

Best thing this beer has going for it is its appearance. It has some underlying chemical odor that I can’t quite place. It’s upfront taste is hard to enjoy as that chemical order ruins it. Improves on the palate. Now being brewed under license by Shipyard Brewery. Won’t seek this one out again.

AirForceHops (2717) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 12, 2011
Purchased a 12 oz bottle from Bert’s Better Beers, Hooskett, NH. Poured into a pint glass. Clear transparent amber color. Nose of light malt and butter. Taste follows nose with a lots caramel, toffee and butter. Not bad at all, but I feel this brew is very average, like the rest of Woodstock Inn brews that I have sampled. Ok, nothing to really seek out.

ExpendableHero (728) - Florida, USA - APR 11, 2011
Copper colored beer with an off-white head. Aromas of caramel, sugar, and molasses. Tastes of woody notes, sweet caramel, brown sugar, and ends on a slightly hoppy/bitter/woody finish. Very smooth mouth feel, and extremely easy drinking. I really enjoyed this, and would buy some if I can find it.

drowland (5958) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAR 5, 2011
2/24/11. 12oz bottle courtesy Cavie! Clear, light red pour with a small tan head that sizzles away fast. Sweet caramel aroma with a hint of butter. Sweet caramel flavor loaded with diacetyl. Blech. Thanks a lot, Trav ol’ boy...

Not great. The wife didn’t even finish hers. I thought about it, but it was drinkable, but not something I’d hunt down again.
