found this one on tap at Nu Yalk Pizza. A pleasant surprise, and so far Buckbean’s best offering. Pours a dark red in color with some off white head, good retention and a well balanced aroma of caramel malt and lively hops. the taste is more caramel malt (ala Tahoe Red) but with a fairly pleasant bitter dry finish. kind of a hybrid amber ale/irish red."

From a 16 oz can at home. Pours amber with an off white head. Way past its prime, with metallic and feint grassy hop notes.

Undated 16 oz can of Buckbean Tule Duck from Total Wine Charlotte 1 day prior to consumption. Great looking beer is a very red amber with a large, frothy tan head that leaves sticky lacing. The body is clear. Smells like a contaminated beer; tasting confirms this. Undrinkable. Research show that the brewery went under some time ago. Rightlyfully so, in my experience. This is the second Buckbean I’ve tried and the other, a different style purchased last year, was also contaminated and nearly undrinkable. Shame on Total for selling this beer; it should have been pulled from the shelves by Total Wine some time ago.

I enjoyed this in a perverse way. Perhaps past its prime, this was a lovely little full bodied, sweet amber with a weird phenolic aftertaste. A little diacetyl too.

Bottle at RBJG 2 Grand Tasting. Cloudy brown colour with a small head that leaves some lacing. Smell of old socks. Flavour of plum, raisin.

RBJG2 can. Big thanks to Travlr for these US state ticks! Aroma is malty, bit indistinct. Taste is buttery, quite sweet. Not so interesting but ok.

Bottled. Sugary, cherry nose, grass and herbs. Muddy color. Dry, mineral flavor, dust, fruit, thin. Yuck.

Can from Beers Of Europe.Light amber pour.Smallish white head.Caramel and malt aroma and taste with a little hop also appearing in the taste.Something unbalanced about this one and hard to drink as well.
