Bottle to half-pint glass (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks solid; a hazy amberish brown with thin eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes of caramel and a bit of toast with a fairly clean medium-bodied mouthfeel. Not bad, but forgettable.

Can purchased on Jekyll Island, during M&D’s wedding weekend. Pours an amber body with thick white head. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with noticeable carbonation and notes of offensive malt, sugar and abrasive alcohol.

PorterPounder (7970) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Tallahassee, Fl. - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, slight white bubbly head. Aroma is pretty much neutral with just a hint of fresh lake water. Flavor has a hint of spice, some faint caramel notes, and a bit of citrus to round it out. Decent bitterness. Mouthfeel is crisp and dry. Much better than its original name sake - which to this day sticks in my head as one of the most foul tasting beers I have ever put my lips to.

ogivlado (7824) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 21, 2015
Bottled 355ml. - at O’Hara Zagreb. Golden amber coloured, minimal off-white head, notes of caramel in the nose. Slight toasted malt, dry caramel, dog food with nutty notes and short caramel finish. Cheery label, bad beer....

FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2010
From my beer club. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a medium amber color with a medium sized foamy white head that produced a little lacing. The aroma was lightly bitter with notes of citrus and honey. The flavor was citrus, honey, nut, bread and vanilla. The finish was medium length bitter lemon and honey. Medium body. Ok.

Idiosynkrasie (7533) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 10, 2016
355ml bottle. Cloudy, deep reddish amber colour with late awakening, small, rapidly diminishing and completely fading, off-white head. Mellow malty aroma with a minimally nuttily touch, unspecific fruity hoppy overtones, a touch of mandarine and orange. Taste is mellow caramel malty, slightly citrusy fruity hoppy overtones, a touch of mandarine and orange; quite watery. So-so.

Strykzone (7360) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2015
12 ounce bottle from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. This beer is clear amber brown and has just a little beige head. The aroma is rich and malty with some nice fruit behind that. The fruit is almost candy. I taste fruity caramel which must mean those two blend well here. A little cinnamon. Mid glass I noted just a little grapefruit bitterness and a tiny bit of chocolate just before that. This beer keeps surprising. Now I am tasting some brown sugar. As fun as the middle of the glass was, the finish was more mundane. There is not usually a lot of excitement in an Amber ale but this one was fun. It offered some nice surprises.
