ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - OCT 1, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours a deep amber color with a small, wispy white head that falls to a thin film. Aroma is a little fruit but mostly malt and a hint of spice. Taste is light fruits and sweet caramel malts with only a hint of hop bitterness peeking through in the finish. Medium body with sharp carbonation.

superspak (5399) - Michigan, USA - SEP 17, 2012
12 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours hazy orange copper color with a small white head with decent retention, that reduces to a thin cap. Minimal lacing on the glass. Aromas of orange, biscuit, toast, caramel, nuttiness, vanilla, grass, floral, light chocolate, and herbal. Very nice aromas with good balance and strength. Taste of orange, biscuit, toast, nuttiness, caramel, vanilla, floral, grass, and herbal. Lingering notes of citrus, toast, biscuit, caramel, nuttiness, vanilla, and light herbal spiciness on the finish for a bit. Fairly robust flavors with nice balance; no cloying sweetness at all. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and lightly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming present on the finish. Overall this is a damn nice cream ale. Nice amount of flavor and balance; very smooth and easy to drink. Really enjoyable, I would have it again.

Chudwick (3124) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - SEP 13, 2012
12oz bottle - pours pale gold with thin white head and decent lacing. Flavor is bread, cereal, grass and citrus. Taste is sweet with a milder bitterness on the back end. light to medium body. Lemon peel aftertaste. Disappointing for an Anderson Valley beer. However, it does stand out for a wheat ale.

Cybercat (5661) - Georgia, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Aroma has wheaty and yeasty notes plus a firm tone of honey. It pours a dark, coppery amber with a fairly thick wheat head. Looks more like a regular ale than a wheat, but so what. Crisp, wheaty, malty flavor has yeasty and honey undertones and just a hint of sweet fruit. Smooth flavor has good body and plenty of fizz. Good for summer - hell, good any time of year.
