oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2005
Pours a nice hazy dark amber color. Has a nice toasted malt aroma, maybe some toffee hints, a little hops. Flavor has a smokey-sweet malt taste, with a touch of hops.

IndianaRed (4290) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 8, 2005
On Tap at the brewpub Hazy, deep reddish brown with a small light tan head and sturdy lasting lacing. Deep malty aroma, easy on the hops and some hints of the ABV coming through. Flavors were sweet malty, a bit woody and the alcohol is noticable. Nice smooth and fairly heavy feel. Again, not too hoppy but otherwise strong all around.

Ernest (7598) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Head is initially large, frothy, off-white, fully lasting. Body is hazy dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers, orange), lightly yeasty (sweat, dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lighlty sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Watery, crude.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Easter Sunday tasting w/ Ernest. Aubrey and Brian. Dark copper color with a large head. Light toffee-laden malts with hints of caramel along with an abrasive flowery hop presence in the nose. Equally expressive malty and hoppy flavor but abrasive and somewhat strange.

Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Murky amber. Thin, fluffy body. Zingy notes of lemon, burnt caramel and toasted toffee. Flowery, grassy bitterness. Very mild sweetness. Dryish, bitter finish.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Light minty alcoholic aroma. Light brown color, thin head. Funky minty taste, off bitterness. Even a little sour. Medium bodied, but doesnt save it.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 15, 2004
This brew pours with a cloudy orange body topped by a thick head with a good amount of lacing. The aroma is sweet, malty and full of candy sugar with a slight hop note. The flavor is sweet yet bitter, grassy from the hops and slightly sugary. Medium bodied, smooth and dry.

flemdawg (561) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2004
2003 bottle. Hoppy aroma along with spices to make things interesting. Hazy amber in color with a light brown head that diminshed quickly. Lots of piney hops in the taste. Also got some citrus flavors and some wood too. Good, but not what I expected from the style.

Medium amber color with a thin, off-white head. Strong malt with some citrus flavors. Lots of pine hops in the finish. Well balanced. Thanks to BBB63 for sharing.
