durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle for $2.29 at TJs in Carrboro. Weird. Pours medium gold with a thin ring of white foam. Just a touch hazy. Nose shows biscuit, honey, grass, and some noble hop-like character. Still, clean malt is more in charge here. Taste adds a mild sweetness. Easy drinking and surprisingly good.

ganache (5773) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle by 07.13. Lightly nutty nose, golden malt and beautiful noble-ish hops, which are actually noticeable here. Clear, rich golden with a rocky white head. Taste is sunny and malty, good balance with the hops, surprisingly not sweet, nice low-lying vein of bitterness, very very dry aftertaste and a hint of grain. Theres some syrupy perceived sweetness in the middle but Id be more willing to attribute that to various hop oils and compounds. Light-medium body has some heft. An example of how simplicity done right can be a winning combination.

TURDFERGUSON (4057) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle. Light hazy golden with a small white steady head, plenty of sticky webby lace. Toasty biscuit malts, honey, graham cracker, grassy and floral hops. Flavor is equally malt driven, but thankfully not too sweet or grainy. Medium bodied with a slightly spicy ginger like finish.

3fourths (9320) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2013 bottle. clear gold body with a medium-sized white head, average retention but thick lacing. pale malt honey biscuit character is strong in the nose, while the aromatic hops are pretty quiet, not that it needs it - musty english ale yeast (with a small touch of diacetyl) is mild and matched to the expressively snappy cracker-snap pale malt, and a mild green rawness and earthiness of noble hops grows as it opens. crisp, smacking texture; medium body; medium-light bitterness; lightly sweet; frothy, round, chewy carbonation. rustic and slightly musty, delicious, quaffable, very old-world, and just clean enough. this and the Native Storm are so surprisingly hearty for being so light. re-rate: BBD 30-09-2013: pungent, musty, nectar-y, fruity, very juicy, musty, sweet approach drying finish... 3.7-->4.0

Ernest (7628) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy dark yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain, cracker, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (old flowers and apricot/marmalade), with light notes of butter and lemon zest. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. I must admit the aroma is quite pleasant despite a little diacetyl, which due to the rich biscuit/cookie-like malt makes it smell like fresh buttered pastries. Typical UK-style hop odor (slightly staled in that homey, comforting way). Crisp and balanced and flavorful (for its diminutive size) in the mouth, clean and easy to quaff. Even though it certainly has room for improvements, I think what I admire most is that its not clunky or husky...it plays things clean and conservative and traditional.

Strangebrewer (1283) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2012
bottle. Poured clear amber with a skim white head. Fruity hop aroma. Initially buttery on the lips, smooth carbonation, tart finish. Malty flavour, caramel and a sweet fruity citrus note, medium dry-astringent finish.

vipinvelp (4323) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2012
Golden yellow with small white foam head lacing to glass. Aroma is weak, but that could be my problem cuurently, in any case a great bitter hop taste. Long lasting dry bitter aftertaste. A good beer indeed. (Velp 201208)
