god (18) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2004
If you could distil the most plain, basic "beer" flavor then this would be it. Completely devoid of any distinctive flavors or character. Okay, it's not really THAT boring, but it is unmemorable enough that you'll forget what it tasted like the next day. Dark orange-y color, full head with good lace. This is NOT the chosen beer. If this was the first beer I'd had from HeBrew then I wouldn't try the rest. Be careful not to drop it when you doze off from boredom.

tfontana (1134) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 13, 2016
Bottle pour into shaker pint glass from Andover Liquors. Appearance is dark brown with tons of effervescent sparkle, 2-finger width foamy beige head with good retention and lots of sudsy lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, dark fruit, brown sugar and nuts. Taste is roasted malts, mild dark fruit, caramel, nuts. Palate is medium bodied with creamy, thick texture, soft carbonation and finish as taste. Overall, this is quite good with a fair amount of complexity. Can’t understand the low ratings based on the one I had.
