FROTHINGSLOSH (8069) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2017
Sampled on draft this beer poured a red-brown color with a large foamy orange-tan head that left decent lacing. The aroma was toasty malts, caramel and a light mix of golden and dark fruits. The flavor was bitter and buttery with caramel, dark fruits and some astringency. Long finish. Medium body. ok.

On tap in CLT in the Phillips crab house crap crotch in terminal C. Pours golden amber, medium foam head that disappears but leaves some lacing in the process. Nose is wet grains. Taste follows, mostly wet grains, some bread, it’s balanced. Medium body with an abrupt finish.

Nsanders (1162) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 10, 2014
Tap. Medium amber with fine carbonation. Grainy, mild hops, white grapes and minerals. Taste is mildly sweet and bitter, but more dry than anything. Watery, bubbly feel.

A dull clear golden color with a weak quick diminishing head white fine foam. Creamy feel. Tangy hops. Some English hop expression. Plain light caramels touch of cardboard. Peach sweetness.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 18, 2012
On tap at Phillips, Charlotte airport. Layover ticks can be demoralizing but this amber was less groan-inducing than many I’ve had. Lively copper body, prickly carbonation bringing out a bit of pale malt and hops in the nose. Consistent with this impression, taste was a bit more dry and bitter than anticipated, and thank fuck for that. Still not much going on, but appreciably greater than expectations.

Ehhh, not terrible. Nice color and poured with a good head. Just not much there flavor besides the malt.

Pours brownish amber color with ample foamy head. On tap at the Harrisburg airport. Taste is toasted malt with a cleansing hop offset at the finish. Average.

3.2
Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 2, 2011
Got to sample this at a rather random and slightly unexpected stop in DC on the bus ride back from DFH. Medium amber. Aroma lightly of caramel and slight citric hops. Flavor matched. Unremarkable, but not bad at least.

3.2
porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JAN 3, 2011
(Draft @ Phiilips in BWI Airport) Served in a shaker. Lightly hazy golden amber body with a smallish off-white head. Aroma features lots of hop florals and fruits with some vanilla-caramel underneath. Mouthfeel is fairly smooth but a little bit pebbly. Medium-bodied, slightly dry. Very nice well-retained rings of lacing. Flavor is fruity and lightly floral over a fairly low key caramel base. Lots of hoppy burps. Pleasant beer.
