Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 15, 2011
Pours gold with just a slight hint of amber and a medium sized off white head. Aroma is bready, biscuity malts with hints of caramelized sugars and earthy hops. Flavor is a semi-sweet blend of bready and biscuity malts with a nice earthy bitter finish. Very nice.

malrubius (2790) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 4, 2014
From old notes - bottle at a tasting -- Golden with ring. Sweaty cardboard yeasty aroma. Very sweet vanilla honey and some funk. Warm unfortunately. Too sweet. Okay.

6/15/2011: Schlafly Brand No. 20 Vol. 1 Imperial Pilsner... Aroma: Muted citrus and resin/pine hops; the maltiness fades into the background; encouraging... Appearance: Hazy, dull gold color with a lovely, frothy off-white head. Flavor: Non-heavy matliness that is mostly pale malts with a little toffee, spicy, floral, leafy Noble hops; alcohol is even and shows in the finish, but doesnt burn. Palate: Medium to medium-full body; very smooth and soft on the tongue. Overall: This beer is easy to drink and well-balanced, but needs just a bit more hops to edge out the malt a touch more...

1 Pt. 9.4 Fl. Oz. bottle (9% Alc./Vol.) from The Party Source in Bellevue, KY. Rating #40 for this beer.

750ml from my summer Secret Santa - thanks! Nice cloudy gold pour with a healthy carbonation and some decent lacing. Nose is fairly unassuming, dry hops and papery malts. Clear sense that its faded at this point, and this turns out to be more or less the case in the flavors as well, which are quite bready. Still a style I often enjoy, but it would be interesting to compare this one fresh.

750 ml bottle shared by Craig or Tom. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a medium sized bubbly white head. The nose is fruity, sweet malt with some spicy hops and a slight lactic tartness. The flavor is primarily sticky sweet malts with some lesser notes of fruits, and spicy hops. I am not much of a fan of this style and this beer does not effect my opinion of the style in either direction.

Tmoney99 (14189) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2011
Bottle. Poured a clear amber color with an average large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting and produced excellent lacing. Moderate hops, yeast and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid brew and very good for style.

hopscotch (10989) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Bottle Clear yellow lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Decent retention. The nose offers pale malts, corn and honey. Full-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and medium carbonation. The flavor provides big, sweet pale malts as the dominant component over modest, peppery and spicy hops. Finishes crisp and bittersweet. Bottle courtesy of phaleslu!

Dogbrick (12587) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2011
Pours a clear darker gold color with a medium fluffy white head that evaporates steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of noble hops, sweet malt and a bit of spice. Medium, clean body with a moderately hoppy character and notes of fruit, spice and malt. The finish is grassy hops with a fruity aftertaste. Good beer all around.
