Keg at Anodyne Coffee House, 8/24/16. Clear reddish copper, large foamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of toasted caramel malt and stone fruit. The taste is caramel malt, jammy strawberries. Thin-medium bodied, simple but drinkable and pleasant.

very sweet and malt rich, carmely almost. could use some more hops for sure. It is a very drinkable beer and I’d recommend it if you’re down on water street. true to the claim of the lable.

I thought this was quite good when cold, not so great as it warmed some. When cold from the refrigerator, it had a "barleywine lite" quality to the aroma--deeply malty and caramelly but with a significant hoppiness, especially as it came out as citrus in the flavor. As it warmed it took on more grassy, even woody flavors. Also, though it retained a substantial mouthfeel with the maltiness, once it lost the vigor of the initial carbonation (though producing just a moderate head on a deep amber/brown body), it lost its sense of tingle and drive. Good beer on the whole, and it went very nicely with my dinner (fajitas).

This is my Lawn mower beer. Pours a amber/red with with a minimal head. Smells of nuts, toffee, butter, and slight hops. Taste is easy going malt, with a little toast, hints of hops, and no metallic aftertaste (thank god). All in all this is pound for pound my favorite lawnmower beer, and at 6.99 a 6 er it’s a great deal.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 8, 2007
Sampled at the brewpub on 6/25/07: Pours a dark amber copper with a frothy, clingy-lacing light tan head. Aroma of toasty grainy caramel malt and a hint of piny hops. Body starts with a fairly full and caramely sweetness along with some bittering earthy hop notes and peat, toward a bittersweet balanced finish.

Nice complex malty flavors. Pours rich and creamy, yet not too filling. Bright hoppy, brilliant finish. Very good beer.

SHANER4 (501) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2009
Bottle 12oz. - Poured dark very cloudy amber color with foamy beige head, also alot of small chunks floating around suspended in beer!! Aroma - Smelled of caramel malt, overly ripe apples and cider. Flavor - Alot of toasted malt, caramel malt taste. Also had mild cider flavor that I liked. Reminded me of a apple jolly rancher with nice bitter finish. Palate - Medium bodied with somewhat creamy texture. Carbonation is lively and finish is bitter and short. Overall - Surprised that I liked this beer. I would buy again, it’s cheap and has nice flavor!!

A full bodied malty amber beer with some nice hops to balance (piney hops). There is another flavor there that almost is a hint of peat? Serving: Bottle
