merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Sixteen ounce can pours a clear copper body with a decent ecru head that leaves some patchy lacing. Subtle aroma has some toasted toffee and a hint of spicy hop. Thin in the mouth with lots of carbonation. Taste fails to impress. Some caramel malt sweetness rides over the restrained hop bitterness. An unpleasant metallic presence distracts. I’ll pass on another.

LinusStick (3419) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2008
A very basic and boring Irish ale. Aroma of not much. Could pick up some roasted malt but very faintly. Pour was a nice deep amber with a one finger white head. Taste was very sticky and wet. Caramel malt, grass and a strong hoppy aftertaste. The finish is nothing but a little bitterness from the hops. Tastes like a beefed up macro. Blah.

Not a good beer. I don’t know why I thought it would be good. Crisp and dry with bitterness.

VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Draft - Poured a reddish amber in color with a thin whitish head. Aroma is a light mix of hops and malt, but not strong for either. Flavor is somewhat hoppy, but not strongly flavored. I am not impressed...

Amber red colour and a strong fruit taste. Looks good but it didn’t satisfy me. There are a lot red beers better than this one.

Actually we’ve got a nice little Saturday planned. We’re going to Home Depot to pick out some wallpaper, then maybe we’ll hit Bed Bath and Beyond... I don’t know! I don’t know if we’ll have enough time!

Bottle at home. Pours a clear copper color with a thin creamy white head. Aroma of pub ale and sweet malts. Flavor is watery, malty and slightly bitter.
