500 ml, bb 17 Aug 07. This bottle says 5.2% abv (not 4.1% as indicated in info above). Hazy, iced-tea look with a large head that settles into a quarter-inch, lasting, sticky ring and leaves some cobwebs on the glass. Butterscotch and caramel, plus some spicy lemongrass and gunmetal in the nose. Citrus, resin, caramel flavors, with a nice bitter grassy-herb finish. Light-medium body is watery, smooth, and a little dry-tingly. One of the best bitters I’ve had, but the 5.2% probably really puts it in the ESB style, where it would still shine.

RSRIZZO (1853) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Had this beer on 1/22/2003. Color is a deep rich amber with good carbonation and a thin head. Aroma is a light sweet malt scent. Taste is light, malty and mildly toasted. Starting with a light/medium body it goes down smooth and easy with a hint of malt coming on. Finish comes on with a mild toasted malt flavor that flows into a nice full malt taste backed by a mellow bitterness. Overall its just a great brew.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - NOV 12, 2007
Still on the shelf at the local liquor store. Best by date: Aug. 17, 2007. Pours copper with a caramel malt aroma and some earthy hops. Flavor has caramel and nutty malts along with a slight earthy hop flavor or maybe that’s cardboard? A little similar to Anchor’s OSA in the flavor. I liked buying this from time to time so it is said to see it go.

Had this quiet a while ago... Apparently when they were still in business. Good caramelly flavors. Nothing spectacular but good none the less.

This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again.

Bottle. Sweet malty and caramel aroma. Pours copper brown with a small off white head. Light roasted malt and some grassy hops on the palate. Fairly thin and watery body. Nothin’ special here.

clear ruby brown with small tan head. the beer had a faint malty aroma backed up by some floral hops. good creamy medium light body and a soft carbonation. great well rounded malt flavor, slightly plums and chocolate, with a decent bitterness. it was a very mellow and smooth drink
