ChainGangGuy (4881) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - FEB 1, 2012
16 ounce pint - $6.00 at Taco Mac in Canton, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours out a crystal clear, dark amber body with nearly a half inch of near white fizz.

Smell: Minor notes of toast, nutty caramel with a layering of dried herb hops.

Taste: Crisped sugar flecks atop a very lightly toasted bready malt base. Light berry-esque quality. Leafy, herbal hops with a medium-low bitterness. Dry, bready, leafy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-light carbonation.

Overall: While not a beer to be celebrated, it is okay, it is drinkable, and a far sight better than some of their other seasonal offerings.

Aroma is pretty bland. Pours a dark clear orange with a rapidly dissipating head that leaves a white ring lacing. It is well balanced - not hoppy with a tiny bit of bitterness in the middle. It goes down easy & is quite drinkable. It just doesnít have any unique qualities or anything to hang itís hat on. Simply, ok.

12 oz. bottle sent for review. Pours a nice amber to orange beer, bubbly, under a thick head. Smell brings in fruity esters right off the start. As with many Northern or Scots made brews, I imagine I catch a little peat in the nose as well. Taste starts with a slightly thin mouthfeel from light carbonation. Not near a pub draught, but a nice attempt. Light malt sweetness has been tempered by hops, though I donít catch any hop impression except for maybe a tinge of earthiness. Yes, quite sessionable indeed.

Poured into a Newcastle Geordie Schooner glass. Color is sort of a light mahogany with a thin white head. Aroma is pale and caramel malts. Flavor is malty with light sweetness and a slight bitterness on the finish. Palate is smooth. Overall this is highly drinkable, and while there arenít any real standout flavors, it is on par with what I would expect from a bitter.

Exactly what I was expecting. Unfortunately, I wasnít expecting much. It seems like a lot of other bottled bitters - Mild hops. . Iím trying to avoid saying "bland", but if the shoe fits...

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2012 12 oz. Clear light amber with a lasting creamy foam. Mild nose of caramel apple and light citrus. Mild taste of grain, caramel and light citrus and dry grass. Light-medium body is smooth and balanced.

Bottle. Pours a bright copper with a short lived head. Aroma is sweet with a hint of hops. Flavor is smooth and well balanced with a hint of hops throughout. The minimal carbonation makes this beer a pleasure to drink. Break out the shepherds pie or bangers and mash to go with this one.

Clear copper. I tried this because Newcastle was the beer that got me to like beer about a decade ago. This isnít a bad tribute. Negligible hops, but nice nuttiness. Very light bodied. Good session beer, although 4.8 is pushing the session limit.

Draft beer from TacoMac in Huntersville, NC. Pours a nice amber color with a light tan head. Aroma is very hoppy with some malt notes. Taste is all malt with a slight hint of the hops on the end. This beer is very smooth to drink and very easy drinking as well. I can only hope the beer bottle version is the same. Good beer.

Tap @ TacoMac, Cumming. Amber color, barely a light tan head. Sharp hop, nutty malts, toasted barley character. Token Newcastle wet box scent. Toasted malts. Very easy to drink, sessionable
