JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2008
Tap at La Jolla location. Deep amber/copper colour. Toasted nutty aroma with a soft estery berry fruitiness. Flavour is quite well-balanced. Light fruit and soft sweet maltiness. A light toastiness and a softly fruity finish. Pretty nice session ale really. Good balance and much better than I ever expected.

Strykzone (7182) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Received in a trade from Hayduke. We shared a bottle via facebook chat. This beer was clear and coppery with a nice head. A rich malty nose that says Irish. A big malty flavor profile that is also grassy and swampy. Light fruit and nuts. Alcohol is also tasted and should not be. Some Graham crackers. Almost no carbonation. Nothing exciting here in a style that is rarely great.
