12 oz. bottle from Whole Foods Charlottesville. Orangeish-brown pour with a small white head. Slightly earthy aroma of grain and caramel. Similar taste but with a VERY forward malt sensation. Medium body. hopdog (12673) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2005
Poured a darker and clear amber color wih a small sized head. Lighter aromas and tastes of bread, maybe some yeast, and malts. I struggled to pin this one down. Thinner body. Lightly sweet. slowrunner77 (12144) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 29, 2014
follows in line with the others i’ve had from their line-up. non-offensive and fairly true to style, but also usually a little thin and boring. this one was no exception. a little generic on the malts, though it satisfied a craving. kinda." shrubber85 (11452) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Bottle. Slightly sweet malt aroma. Medium amber color with small head. Malt and strong hops flavor - little sweetness. A surprisingly strong brew for Matt’s - a very nice beer. hopscotch (11161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2003 Clear, deep amber lager. Small, frothy, off-white head.
Hearty and malty nose with an alcoholic and beefy punch.
Disappointing flavor. No real flavor to speak of. Slightly sweet.
Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation.
