hopdog (12549) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2006
On tap at the Springfield, PA location. I guess I’ll put my rating here seeing that Tom put his here as well. Poured a medium and see through orange color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of caramel and citrus. Some lacing left on the glass. Thinner body. mjs (7357) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2009
(Draught at Union Station location) Poured amber and clear with small, sparse and white head. Aroma was malty and herbal. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Tasted of malts, teabag, lightly fruity and bitterness. Hoppy and mildly bitter aftertaste. AirForceHops (7240) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Draft @ Union Station, Providence, R.I. Shaker glass showed a clear golden color with a thin ring of head. REALLY basic in aroma and flavor. Nose is malt with a biscuit type aroma. The malt flavor is balanced well with a floral type hop. Lighter in body. Standard and pleasant. I got what I wanted after a long night of drinking. This was my recovery brew with lunch.
Braudog (6716) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2011
Draft at Providence brewpub. Bright golden and beautifully active. This has a bit of a malty edge, but it is quite drinkable and easy going. (#4236, 8/25/2011) ClarkVV (6708) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 2, 2005
On draught at the Framingham location, 5/27/2005. Light yellow-gold appearance with hints of light amber and a small white head that quickly recedes to a bubbly film, no lacing, slight chill haze. Aroma has bits of sweaty hay, light grainy vienna-like malt (not that that’s actually in there) and some floral/perfumey hops. Almost smells more like a pilsener than an IPA. The flavor, though, was quite solid, I thought. A good body provided by lightly doughy malt (white bread, honey, light biscuits). Low hops bitterness, but a moderate hops flavor of light lemon, tangerines and grassiness. Herbal finish, with light pale malts and a medium body overall, touch of wateriness, but a pretty solid, low carbonated mouthfeel. Very drinkable.
Aurelius (5335) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2004
Orange blossom Cascade aroma. Intense gold. Carpeting head. Sturdy western hopping, tart, orangey. A decent brewbup PA. medium body, bitter hoppy finish. TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - SEP 3, 2006
Had this on tap at the Springfield PA location. Billed as the Haunted Star Pale Ale. Not sure this is the correct beer to add this under or if I should have entered a new beer. But it wasn’t that great so I’m just going to add it under here since it is an APA by John Harvards. Pours a golden amber with no head. Aroma of caramel malt, some sweet orange, kind of mellow. Flavor of sweet malts, some very light pine and citrus. Watery. Jow (3925) - New York, USA - DEC 22, 2016
Tap at brewery I’m pretty hungover so this beer helped with recovery quite a bit. Golden pour. Faint nose of pils and citrus. Tastes of light lemons, malt and dusty hops. Watery palate and easy drinking. 50belair (3643) - Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Smells like a Marzen. Corn and pilsner hop notes. Bland and lifeless. Not much going on here. asheft (3082) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2014
[on tap at Union Station brewpub]
Caramel and butterscotch (diacetyl) aroma with very faint citrus (Ringwood?). Very slightly hazy orange-copper under a white patch and ring of fine bubbles. Unexpectedly very dry and slightly sour toffee that is dominated by a faintly astringent bitterness. No hops flavour. Diacetyl accent. Light body, moderate to medium carbonation, lingering astringency.
