   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Dacrza (942) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - AUG 29, 2013
DATE TASTED: August 22, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Victory Hop Devil nonick... OCCASION: last night of camp thoughts--a good eight weeks...APPEARANCE: handsome reddish-brown body supports a thick off-white head that laces reasonably well; subtle bubbles... AROMA: sweet caramel and cinnamon; hops are light and aromatic--suggestive of soft pine; malts lend a Scottish allure...PALATE: like a brown ale, beginning with a solid malty backbone; hops tickle the teeth, but the malt holds the trump in the profile...TASTE: significant warming aftertaste; medium-bodied, almost an IPA; the alcohol is palpable... OVERALL: an intriguing purchase that may not live up to its bomber status; rounded enough to be a thought on St. Pattys day, but not powerful or substantial enough to demand attention on a non-holiday night; not much of a summer beer either; still, not without its merits or usefulness...

Theydon_Bois (18936) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2016
Keg at the brewery tap, 01/02/16. Golden orange with a decent off White head. Nose is grain, airy malt, orange, light caramel. Taste comprises toasted bread, candy bar, light orange, popcorn, grain. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Totally whelming stuff ... to pack such little flavour into 7%+ ABV takes some doing !!

phaleslu (10015) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Draft at the brewery, served in a flight. Pours a clear gold with an off-white head that settles into a little cap while lacing the glass. Notes of sweet malts, florals, faint citrus, and soap. Light-bodied, with moderate soft carboantion and a malty, bitter, sweet mouthfeel. The regular Amber Ale works a bit better by focusing on a multi-dimensional malt profile.

brokensail (16401) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 2, 2016
​On tap @ Napa Smith. Clear orange/amber colored beer and a white head. Lots of banana and fruity, peachy esters. Some bread, caramel, and grassy hops. Theres a strong toast, caramel, and vanilla note to the flavor. Light hop profile. Somewhat grassy and floral. Fine for this sort of beer, even if its probably flawed.

Homer321 (4848) - Melboring, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Draft at source. A mostly sweet caramel malt aroma with not much toasty malt character. Very clear pale red color. Small white head. Mostly caramel in the flavor with a light slickness on the tongue. Light butter, maybe.minimal hop expression.
