Deep amber ale with a small, wispy, off-white head. The nose is of sweat, jalapeno or habenero pepper and earth. The flavor is moderately bitter with a strong hop bite. Grass and straw or hay. Medium-bodied with an astringent mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Lengthy, bitter finish. This beer is just too bitter without any sense of purpose or complexity. Hopped up solely for the sake of being hopped up. daknole (11044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 9, 2009
bottle from my sister and bro in law. thanks Ben and Dhari! Amber pour, small off white head. Aroma is very much full of malts and some sweet and slighty spicy hops. Flavor is mellow and smooth. Easy caramel matls and some hops make this pretty easy to drink. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

Dark amber, little head. Malt dominates nose, lots of caramel and some dark fruits. Little hop aroma or flavor, malt dominates flavor as well. Lots of caramel, rather sweet, dark fruits. Strong hop bitterness kicks in, especially in the finish, very bitter, though little aroma. Interesting, sweet and rich, almost chewy pa. phaleslu (10100) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 31, 2015
12 oz. bottle from shrubber85- thanks again, Roger! Pours a clear gold with an inch of white head. Notes of corn, straw, sugar, grass, and pale malts. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Malty mouthfeel, but simultaneously light and clean. Meh.

Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Citric and floral hoppy aroma with some light grassy notes. The flavor has citric and floral hops, light sweet malts, and medium bitterness. Pretty good. solidfunk (8838) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 13, 2015

Bottle. Pours clear golden with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet fruity hoppy with a good citric kick. The flavour is citrus, caramel, biscuits, peaches and sweet light toasted malt. Nice. Thanks karstenborg for sharing.

12oz bottle at the July DC tasting. Poured a clear golden color with a small off-white head. Aroma was light sweet malt notes. Light pine. PorterPounder (7894) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2008
Florence, South Carolina, Red Bone Alley Restaurant, 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, little to no head - slight white lacing though. Odd, artificial aroma - that is not unpleasant - reminds me of some kind of jelly-like candy you get around Christmas for a fund raiser. Flavor is muddled and artificial and has hints of apricots and peaches and a touch of citrus - sticky - in an artificial way. Thick enough. Only thing the bartender could find that was "local" when I asked - took him a while to find it and was not sure what to charge me for it - he guessed at $1.50. Worth that - this one has suffered a bit from shelf life me thinks - rating gives it the benefit of the doubt. Will rerate upon encountering again.
