Sammy (11977) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2007
An amber and a decent white head with some malt and hops aroma. Fresh, good bitterness and medium mouthfeel and appropriately carbonated. Clean taste, well-balanced, just fairly run-of-the-mill. In a word, serviceable.

nimbleprop (8218) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 19, 2009
12oz bottle pours a translucent, deep caramel brown with a frothy, creamy slightly tan head. The beer settles like a glass of Guinness. Very nice looking. Aroma is fairly mild, some distinct caramel sweetness, a little dusty, very earthy, a touch peaty. Flavor is big on the sweetness up front, caramel, toasted malts, sweet malts, a touch of orange. Finish is a little watery with both some lasting sweetness and some lasting bitterness.

Braudog (6630) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2007
Bottle: It pours with a reddish-orange hue and a thin head. The aroma is fruity, almost like grape juice. The beer drinks with a unique malty tone -- fruity, but also earthy and woodsy, with an almost mapley aspect and a sweet grapey pull. The finish is incredibly dry with a hoppy little pinch. Although this beer doesnt present any overt greatness, the sum of its parts make it quite the delicious brew. This would pair well with just about any American fare -- Im craving a big juicy burger!
