COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A 2001 Silver Medal Winner at the North American Brewers' Association competition. A deep-copper colored medium - bodied ale. Its fresh flavor is smooth and carefully balanced with a nice mellowness and hint of caramel malt balanced by medium hop bitterness. It is an all malt beer that is naturally carbonated. A very drinkable beer all on its own and pairs well with all kinds of foods.

This one fails to inspire. Seriously, I have no idea what to write here. I am wearing a blue shirt.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2011 12 oz bottle-pours an off white head and hazy gold/orange color. Aroma is herbal, funky fruit. Taste is funky fruit-apricot, osme herbal, light/medium malt-caramel. Not sure what the objective was but… Thanks decaturstevo for sharing. 110302-on tap, still about the same bottom line

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2009
Bottle thanks to Sparky27. Hazy dirty orange with a finger of off white head. Aroma is caramel, crystal malt, light pine hops. Taste is an unsettling strange crystal malt sweetness, some more pine needle hops.

Django (16) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2009
Bouteille brune, 12onces, achetée à Phœnix. Roux clair, mousse qui disparaît rapidement, arômes presque imperceptibles, malt/caramel très discret, en bouche, épaisseur moyenne, saveurs similaires au nez. Moyennement sucrée, peu d’amertume. Agréable en accompagnement d’une lasagne.

hellbilly (3248) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JAN 19, 2009
i got the fresh batch with the fancy arizona flag on the caps!

pours clear and a slightly orange shade of amber with a fluffy white head. very dry earthy aroma of caramel malt, faint pine (not resinous), grapefruit and orange. the flavor is quite the same... flowers, a little bit of spice and hoppy dryness on the finish. the medium body is quite dry and clean. the carbonation level is palate cleansing.

well made, sessionable and safe. i look forward to tasting this from the taps! 6/3/6/3/14/3.2

TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 17, 2009
Bottle from hellbilly. Pours reddish amber with a small white lace. Nose is crystal malt, sweet and fruity pebbles. Flavor is similar, not much bitterness detected. Meh.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - DEC 17, 2008
12 oz bottle, thanks to cbkshubert. Pours copper with small but lasting beige head. The aroma is crystal malt, a little bit of fruity hop resin, and some squash. The flavor is crystal malt again, that profile that seems like iced tea. There are some planty hops in there with a touch of pine. The finish is papery and slightly bitter. Ok, not great.

iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - DEC 3, 2008
12oz bottle, no date, thanks to Sparky27 for the bottle! Also, my label states 6% ABV instead of the listed 5.5%. Hazy brown orange with a one finger very quickly fading beige head down to a thin ring. Aroma is caramel malt, toasted grain, and a tinge of honey. Flavor adds just a touch of pine hops. Finish is a little earthy with bitterness peaking around a 2. Very low pinpoint carbonation with a medium body. Not too bad, but fair.

2.6
greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - DEC 1, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear copper, with zero head. Aroma is malt and a bit nutty. Flavor...is very bland, in fact, there is something that is just not quit right. The mouthfeel is very thin, just about watery. This is not a good beer.

3.4
Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 16, 2008
Bottle courtesy of rustychiles. Pours copper with a creamy white head. Smells earthy with a hint of sweet malt. Tastes of dry malt, some spice, a touch of earthiness on the finish.
