I recently discovered this beer in a local supermarket for $4.49/six bottles. It was quiet a surprise for the money. Very smooth and goes down good. I am very impressed and will buy again, especially considering it’s price.

Deep red/brown. Little head and lace if any. Decent nose of malted barley, slight hints of coffee and chocolate. As with the porter, it seems stale or maybe thats how its supposed to taste. Slight roast, burning paper, slight sweetness. Piss poor beer.

Dark, but not opaque, with a thin tan head. Slighty bitter with a roasted aroma. It has characteristics of a macrobrew in its flavor profile. Kinda thin for a porter and it has a rather dull finish. Not a bad beer, but nothing I would seek out to purchase again.

Not bad but not great. A mix between traditional and porter. Personally i like either of those better but its always good for a switch.

Stale odor-stale taste. Head is foamless and flat. Thin taste, no malt flavor, no hops to mention either. What are people who say that this is better than Saranac thinking? This beer tastes like a Buttwiper (budweiser) that has been injected with coloration and artificial flavors. In fact, I would rather drink a buttwiper than this beer. What a crappy beer.

This is good before you look at the bill, but even better after. A three dollar pitcher!!! There is a god. The caramel isn’t really that strong, and it leaves one with a dry mouth. Has a smoky head to it, and a nice aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

hopscotch (9388) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2005 Bottle... Very dark brew with a large, fizzy, khaki head… clear and caramel-colored when held up to bright light. Chocolate and hickory notes in the aroma. Well-balanced, lightly bitter flavor. Otherwise, bland and non-descript. Light to medium-bodied and fizzy. Finishes crisp, clean and then dry.
