Sammy (12329) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2011
Fresh bottle from the brewery. Great summer beer, refreshing after a very hot Milwaukee day. Nice foam head retained on mellow yellow body. A little cheese but mostly pleasant aroma. Easy mouthfeel and a good drinker.

BVery (10600) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 3, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap at the Sprecher tour/reserve tasting. Light orange pour, clear, with a white head. Saaz hop/sweatsock nose. Bright palate with carbonation. Great taste of grain and hop, very clean. Paired it with 10-year cheddar, very nice.

PorterPounder (8066) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - pint bottle. Medium golden pour, slight cloudiness, nice bubble actions, snow white head. Aroma has some butterscotch accents, a touch of vanilla. Flavor has a buttery back end with some vanilla notes, some butterscotch, some honey sweetness. Mouthfeel has a decent spritz to it. Can’t tell if the butterscotch is from diacetyl or it is intended - pleasant at first - turns cloying after a while.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2011
Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a creamy white head. The aroma was sweet and bready, with some lemon zest accenting.. a tad skewed toward the sugars, but solidly presented. The flavor found more honey than bread at the core, with lemon and earthy bitter notes around.. a little spice and tanginess worked well on the back-end.. again too sweet to be refreshing. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. grainy at times.. aiight overall.

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Pour on tap at the Reserve Tasting at the brewery (Glendale, WI). Pours a rich pale straw yellow hue, touches of haze give it some life, glowing straw, with a bigger cakey offwhite head atop that stays larger, cakes, and laces well. Aromas are an earthy spicey hopping, gentle grass and florals, touches of pale malts, bready dough and yeast. A good liveliness. Initial is lighter bodied, bready crisp malts and dough up front, touches of dandelion and lemon. Middle is mellow sweetness, earthy hops, gentle spice, and mellow crisp bready malts. Finish is mellow sweetness, crisp, not dry, with some doughy malts, crackers, crusty bread. Gentle grass, earth, faint lemon. Pretty nice and fresh. Could use a touch more life on the hop side of things, but overall it’s quite drinkable and enjoyable.

Suttree (6415) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 9, 2011
I was a bit leery of drinking something called "Summer Pils" on December 8th, but to my pleasant surprise it seemed reasonably fresh. Grassy and grainy, with a nice crisp finish. It did not get that canned corn flavor until after it warmed up a bit, so maybe this needs to served really cold...
