hopscotch (10708) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2004
Crystal clear copper ale with a small, creamy, khaki-colored head. Cirrus lacework. Malty, sweet aroma. A bit floral and chocolatey. Maybe a note of vanilla and a hint of port. The well-balanced flavor is lightly chocolately and roasty with a suggestion of buttermilk. Medium-bodied with an astringent mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Short, crisp finish.

Bottle @ home, picked up at Argonaut Denver. Pours a deep brown appearance with a brown head. A bit tangy, buttery caramel malty, nutty, toasty aroma. Roasty malty, caramel, chewy nutty, a touch fruity flavor. A bit watery. Bleh.

slowrunner77 (10494) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 11, 2014
"Solid brew for a brown ale, but nothing too exciting. Slightly better than the average brown...decent body and carbonation, aroma and flavor slightly more robust than the norm. Malted chocolate, light nutiness, earthy hops, and a touch of bittersweet in the finish."

Burnt sienna pour with aroma of big roasty malt, chocoff, some hops. Tastes malty, with chocoff, nuts, and brown sugar elements. Smooth and silky.

jercraigs (10019) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2006
Bottle. Ruby tinged brown body, small tan head. Malty aroma, touch of a nutty brown ale bite to it. Sweet malt has plenty of earthy nutty notes as well. Average palate. Not bad. Brewnosers Meeting.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 8, 2013
355mL. This is one of the first beers Cohen and I ever got to try after discovering ratebeer as juniors in college. Wasn’t rating back then, so picked up this bottle for nostalgia’s sake. Pours clear deeper brown, medium tan head. Weaker retention and little soapy lacing. Aroma is quite nice- toffee, coffee, hazelnut, caramel, browned butter. Taste is suddy, minerally, lemon, coffee, detergent...long coffee acid and lemon acid finish. Lemon detergent palate. It still isn’t offensive, but not very fresh or rich tasting. Tart, bitter, no cloying. No apparent off-flavors besides soapiness.
