beerbill (3618) - Laurel, New York, USA - FEB 20, 2010
22 oz. bottle shared at Dave’s get-together. Pours a hazy golden brown with a moderate linen white head. Aroma of caramel malt and a little bit of butter. The flavor is malt up front that quickly wanes with some astringent hops and noticeable alcohol at the finish. Soapy mouthfeel that lingers on the plate long after the swallow. Not very good.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Bottle. Pours a copper toned body with an off white head. Malty body with some light chewy fruits and hints of toffee and wooden scotch tones. Dry and brittle with a modest warming and accented by subtle apricots and caramel. It didn’t taste like band aids or paper, awesome!

blankboy (7689) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2009
Bottle (22oz) shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus & biegaman -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a cloudy orange-copper with an average size frothy off-white head. Aroma of dark fruit and alcohol first followed by malt and a mild sourness. Flavour of sour fruit, metal, light hops and alcohol. Average bodied. Aroma’s decent but the flavour wasn’t very good.

HogTownHarry (6872) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2009
Bottle (22oz). Shared with blankboy, biegaman & garthicus, via trade with glouglouburp. Hazy copper, decent creamy off-white head. Sour fruit aroma, oddly tangy, some sort of solvent - lemony. Taste - boozy, fruity, mostly just dry lemon and alcohol. Sharply carbonated mouthfeel, boozy and an ugly sour aftertaste.

garthicus (2929) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 3, 2009
Thanks to HogTownHarry: Appearance: Cloudy ruby red with an off white medium head. Aroma: Malt and slight dark fruit, paint thinner, toffee. Flavour: Bitter, dry, yeasty, quite sharp, somewhat dusty, not sure if this is an old bottle. Odd, sour and a little thin.

Beerdedone (3408) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2009
Bottle. Pours a deep dark copper color with a small beigh head. Aroma is malty with caramel, toffee and has a hint of sourness. Flavor is sweet malts, caramel, toffee, molasses and has a touch of tartness.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2008
Tap at Barcade’s 4th Anniversary Party: A tan head vanishes over a murky, deep amber body. The aroma is sweet rotted fruits, old fruit skins and sugar plum. The body is slick, with notes of oxidation. Starts with a bitter old fruit skin note- plummy suggestions and a peppery long dry hopped finish. Predominately old fruit flavors with odd papery notes as well. Not really working out well.

Boutip (6374) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2008
Bottle: Poured a deep copper color ale with a huge foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of huge caramel malt with some nice notes of toffee and subtle dry fruits also noticeable. Taste is a mix between again some huge caramel malt with some very interesting notes of toffee and dry fruits. Medium sweetness is well balance with a full body, some great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. I hard heard that chances were that Mcneill’s bottles could be infected but I have to admit that this one was quite good.

daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 12, 2008
Well mine was not infected, I bought a bottle from a Stowe, VT liquor store. This one pours an amberish/brown color with very little head. I think my bottle was a tad flat. Aroma is malty and sweet smelling. Flavor is malty and a bit warm. Good? I guess.
