durhambeer (2585) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 13, 2010
Pours lighter than many of the style, closer to pale yellow. White head. Bready nose and some grassy hops. Less caramel than expected, but sufficiently malty. Some hay. Alcohol well hidden.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 16, 2010
Thanks to shellebrownies on BA! Nice earthy pour, pale gold, a healthy amount of sediment, and a roiling carbonation that seems fitting. Apple and bread in the nose, again more or less as expected. Palate is a bit underwhelming and the beer is thinner than desired. Also slightly bland to taste, with fairly generic bready malts, light fruit, and just a hint of bitter flavors to the finish. Decent but not much more than that.

MeadMe (1694) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2010

markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Thanks jdubfl for the share. Pours hazy yellow with white head. Nose is spice, herb, tartness, and pepper. Flavor is similar with some nice herb and spice notes and some mild smokey malts. Mild in flavor, and booze is well-hidden in this 8.5% beer. Medium bodied and interesting.
