HopTsing (575) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - AUG 5, 2012
From the can poured a nice, dark amber brew with a creamy, light tan head. Well balanced flavors and aromas of malt and hops. Full bodied and delicious.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2012 The aroma is papery and malty with a toasted quality. The appearance is deep amber with a nitro head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall it’s an average beer.

MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Gift from SJ. I enjoyed this bitter. Some interesting points. A good blend of nut, dry hop, bitterness, bread and smoke. Its finish was sweet, but not overly.

2.8
Onslow (1512) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Pour from a 14.9 oz can. Clear reddish brown brew with almost no head. Aroma of toasted malts and a bit of yeasty sour. Taste is lightly roasted grains, a bit of toast, a little sweet malt. Watery palate but very refreshing, leaving the mouth feeling clean.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Can. Poured a medium amber with a creamy, medium-sized head. Aroma and flavor were mild: some toffee, nuts, mildly malty, some earthy hops. Light mouthfeel. Good, I suppose, for such a low alcohol entry. I expected more.

1.8
obguthr (6528) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Draft: Body odor smell. Crystal clear chestnut, medium off white head. Mildly nutty, but somewhat like dishwater. Thin and watery.

2.9
Cunningham (8160) - Halden, NORWAY - JUN 8, 2012
Amber colour with a tan head. Toffee and fruity nose. Mild flavour with toffee, hopps and a moderate fruitiness. A bit flat carbonation on can.
[Can from Liverpool, England]

2.6
ttoadee (1534) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2012
From can. Light brown pour, no real head. Malt on the nose, and maybe a handful of dark fruit. Slightly bitter across the tongue, but it seems more from the carbonation than hops. Thin finish, with a slight hop bitterness. I expected more.

2.8
kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 1, 2012
The head is ok , the body brown. It is bitter, creamy, herb-bitter, and just a little bit watery. => Overall ok! 11/6/6/6/8/6
