Ernest (7888) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber / medium brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, cookie, toasted bread), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot, orange, herbs), with a light note of toffee. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. Solid! The LTD series in general has seen significant improvements over the past couple years, and while I’ve never had this particular one before, it’s probably never been better. Delightful toasty-cookie-toffee-ish malt character with soft citrusy hops. For the modest price, this is a very worthy quaffer.

blankboy (7865) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2012
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a clear orange-amber with a small semi-lasting frothy white head. Aroma of caramel malt, nuts, some fruit and very light hops. Flavour of caramel malt, nuts, light hops and a light bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Nothing wrong with this but it’s also nothing special, an O.K. beer. -- Rated via Beer Buddy.

HogTownHarry (7085) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - JAN 13, 2012
12oz bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours a lovely clear copper with a lasting two-finger fluffy off-white head. Smells a bit like a amber ale / nutbrown cross - herbal, light roast, dry, mild alcohol, a bit of metal. Taste follows, more bitterness, no metal, the alcohol is there in the taste. Light body, a touch watery and astringent, mildly carbonated, with a medium earthy bitter finish. Not sure what this is, but it was well-made ... vienna? sure, why not.

kramer (6991) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber body under a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin ring pretty quickly. The nose is sweet vienna malt with a bit of light fruitiness and minimal to no hops. The flavor is fairly sweet with that little bit of fruitiness emerging on the back end that’s a bit of a problem in a Vienna Lager. Minimal to no hops to balance out the sweetness from the malt. Not quite as clean as I’d like. Light to medium bodied with a bit of cling to the finish and minimal soft carbonation. Meh, this is one I could pass on were I faced with the choice of having it again.

RobertDale (6980) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUL 8, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Pours amber with a nice biege head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is malt, caramel, a bit of citrus, and a bit of hops. Easy to drink.

5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 23, 2011
Bottle:   Rich and deep vibrant amber, moderate foamy off-white head, nice lacing.   Malty up front, a little cereal and barnish/basement like mustiness.   A little sweet on the backside.   Somewhat mealy, but its minor.   Decent malt base, semi-sweet, enjoying it more than I thought I would based on the other LTD beers.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Does have a little mealiness that lingers.   Otherwise not bad, clean, and better than other LTD beers.   Still doesn’t live up to Eliot Ness tho!

obguthr (6825) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Vague nutty aroma, not strong. Clear chestnut, medium head.Fizzy. Sweet malt flavor, like cane sugar sweet. Not a lot of character or intensity, perhaps some dried leaves. Strange sweetness. I dig the revolving lager concept, but not this edition.

3.4
Patrickctenchi (6807) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Pours dark amber with a nice tan head. Scent is bready, sweet malt. Taste is slightly nutty, richly malted, biscuit, caramel. Very flavourful and easy drinking. Pretty good.
