DrnkMcDermott (3072) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2003 Bottled. Another 3-4 year old bottle from a friend's stash that ages nicely. In fact, it still reads "Ruedrich's Red Ale," whatever that means. Pours a rusty red color with some sediment swirled in. Caramelly taste, a bit tart like a hint of cherry. Hops grab attention a bit further down; they are mellowed but still Pale Ale spicy, and impart a touch of cider. A decent, slightly strong beer that keeps well with care.

Turtles (2460) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 28, 2017
355ml bottle from Systembolaget. Deep copper with a medium size white head, some lacing. Pine and herbal aroma, grapefruit, earthy, leaves and bread. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel, medium carbonated. Toasty malty and pine hoppy taste, caramel, honey, black tea, citrus and biscuits. Crisp and dry finish with pleasent bitterness.

Clean light amber color with a healthy head of white soapy foam. Caramel malt breaks through in a well balanced conjunction of dry and sticky pine hops.

unclefrito62 (240) - Stow, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2017
Pint at Winking Lizard Pennisula. Light white head. Caramel in color. Taste of fruit, pine, caramel, a touch of pepper and a hint of honey and biscuits keeps this very well balanced. Very smooth and easy to drink. Nice beer overall.

anstei (1986) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 11, 2017
Tap at SF Beer Week Opening Gala. Takes a minute to settle, almost exclusively foam. Turns clear golden. Aroma: Some hops, rather malty. Super soft and smooth, medium body, almost no aroma, but it doesnt need it. Still good, just because of the texture. An interesting brew for sure.

tightslice (1187) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 5, 2017
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is malts, fruity malts. Taste is malty with some nuttiness on the finish. This doesnt really seem like an APA to me. Perhaps more like an Anchor California Common or an Amber Ale (GASP!). Overall, not offensive and drinkable.

Looks good, like a British pint, with a creamy head and no visible fizz. Other than the creaminess expected with Nitro, not much of a flavour. Perfectly drinkable, but not outstanding. (K)

I remember Ryan, not all that well. For one year of my life we lived in the same building and we hung out a lot. We both played guitar. He was technically better but I had a certain instinct and attitude that got me some respect. Most of our stories have been lost to me and I think in the end of that year he started to distance himself from me for one reason or another. When I was younger I had a tendency to be abrasive. Arrogant. Loud. So I dont blame him all that much. I remember him fondly because the one time he attempted to surf a floating log and of course ended up taking a swim. This beer is too sweet, too malty for me.
