madvike (3237) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2011
Bottle from hbmason and jtwattsrugger...thanks Tim and John! - Pours hazy amber with a real thin white head. Light nuttiness, toasted malt, hay, honey, herbal hops. Just a hint of heat. Light toasty malt, pretty dry and clean. Herbal hop finish with a dry, bready light toasted finish. Crisp mouthfeel, though the carbonation is dialed up a bit much. Pretty enjoyable but not my favorite style.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - SEP 4, 2010
(22 oz. bottle from Lous Beverage Barn - label also says "Reserve Ale" but I dont know if this is a different version) Pours clear light golden amber with a few fingers of whitish head. Aroma of caramel, honey, bread, pine, sweat and some metallic. Mouthfeel fairly smooth and thick but a little prickly. Flavor of light caramel, honey, some bread, licorice, light pine and a bit of a bitter hit in the finish. Thankfully none of the sweat or metallic in the flavor. Low ABV apparency. Decent bock.

22 oz. bomber. A great Spring beer. Very refreshing lager like 7 percent beer! So smooth for the alcohol content. Highly recommended.

Ibrew2or3 (8557) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 29, 2010
Pours clear gold with off white head. The aroma is sugary sweet, apricots and yeasty spices. The taste is somewhat similar with sweet slick malts to go along with a certain lager esque sweetness as well as a touch of crystal like malts. It quickly picks up sweet fruity notes like perfectly ripe apricots and apples.

Chalsk (1104) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2010
On tap at Cloverleaf. Pours a golden color with a white foam head. Has a malty lager aroma. Quick hit of sweet up front with notes of fruit and bitters, with the sweet surviving through the sweet, sweet finish. Very lager like.
