Drake (13742) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 7, 2010
12 ounce bottle from the spring sampler. Pours a hazy burnt orange/copper color with a medium offwhite head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, nuts, chocolate. Taste is bitter hops, apricots, chocolate, caramel, toasted malts, apple. Medium bodied. Decent beer.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2010 I assure you I will enter my entire review as soon as possible. This beer is a slightly hazy copper color with a medium thin light beige head that dissipates steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of bready malt and hops. Light body with flavors of sweet malt, resiny hops and a bit of earth. The finish is lightly hopped with a mildly bitter aftertaste. A little better than expected, but an average beer overall.

This is just pure garbage, fart in a bottle. Why even bother to make this drivel?

hopdog (12584) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2012
12oz bottle. Poured an amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of saw dust, some earthiness, and some toasted bread. Tastes of toasted bread, and grains. Thin and somewhat watery body.

j12601 (12000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 18, 2011
On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a clear golden orange with a medium to large beige head. Very sweet caramel on the nose, lots of toast. Sweet, toast and a hint of cocoa. Rather empty, sweet and caramel filled. A touch metallic, and almost buttery smooth. Soft bitterness on finish. Better than expected, but still rather dull and not something I’d really want to be drinking much of.

hopscotch (11113) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2010
Bottle… Mostly clear amber lager with orange highlights and a small, creamy, off-white head. Good, tight retention. The aroma offers lots of Munich malt and a moderate amount of chocolate malt. Also a bit nutty and biscuity. Medium-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. The flavor has some nice toasted malt sweetness and a bitter hop bite. Finishes snappy and moderately bitter.
