Light red amber pour from 12oz bottle. White thin head. Prune and juicy flavor. Sweet also. Not bad

This bottled brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized brown colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind no visible carbonation semi-opaque cola brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The weak aroma was malty. The vinous mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium roasted malt aftertaste. The strong hot peppery flavor contained notes of vinous clove and brown malt. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

Light umber color with a moderate light tan colored head. I like the aromas… nice toasted malt, toasted rye bread and hints of peppers and light fruit. A light amber flavor with a hint of chilies. Finish has a green pepper linger. This would be one to boil the sausages in. 3/12

Brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has some brown sugar, toffee and some odd vegetable notes. The flavor makes the beer taste really old. I get something that tastes like plastic or silly putty. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle w/ twist off cap. Sterile vanilla aroma. Brown liquid. Quite strong on the taste buds, a new strong sensation. Hah, a pretty good craft beer from minhas. A little too strong for me but I bet you’ll like it.

Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2012
A handsome looking beer, having a clear chestnut body with a creamy beige head and sheets of lace, this ale has a soft caramel and bread aroma complemented by a light chili spiciness. The flavor has the addition of a toastiness and the mild ancho chile serves to balance the malty sweetness. Any heat from the peppers serves as a quiet afterthought. Nice.

Aurelius (5437) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2014
Well, anything featuring a buzzard on the label can’t get high marks for appearance. Dark brown with fine carbonation. Malty, doughy aroma with some acidity and roast. Tangy, brown sugar and molasses tones, slow burn spicy. Slightly heavy body. Standard 12 oz longneck. New Leaf Market.

Blairgus (4613) - California, USA - NOV 16, 2012
17 nov 2012, bottle. Nut brown, clear. Nose is sickly sweet malt, maybe some grape jelly. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Sweet caramel malt. Really sickly caramel malt. Ugh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
