   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Pours a clear, rusty amber color. A small off-white head settles almost instantly to a wispy film with a small edge. Minimal, spotty lacing noted. The aroma is dry and bland, mostly comprised of dry grains, soured caramel, and moderate floral hops. The flavor follows suit. A boring, uninspired blend of spent caramel, bitter floral hops, and a touch of spice do not impress. The body is watery, maybe just a bit more substantial that your run-of-the-mill pale lager. I found the mouthfeel to be dry and harsh. This is not a good beer. Borderline drainpour.

nearbeer (5142) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 26, 2007
12 oz. Clear copper with medium-sized head that hangs around. Aroma is grainy: sourdough rye bread touched with honey. Taste is sour apples and slight tart cherry. Aftertaste has some herby-grassy hops and chocolatey roasted malt flavors, and is really the best part of the beer. Palate is light-medium, fairly smooth and kind of fizzy-airy at the end.

Color- lean copper brown amber with a thin lightly frothy offwhite. 3 Aroma- sweet, not offensive like ambers, citrusy hops, caramel, 6 Flavor- some off flavor upfront, easy mild, a bit sour, definitely malt leaning, 5 Palate- easy mouthfeel, little presence, mild carbonation 3

I only have one note for the Amber, Pilsner and Red Ale - "bland" and I gave them all the same scores. I guess wasnt into writing much at the time.

Bottle - Mostly a standard Amber ale... a little over carbonated to my liking. This one didnt really inspire me. Dont think I would prefer to drink this one again.

PorterPounder (7682) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2007
UPDATED: APR 10, 2010 Rerate Must have really gotten a bad bottle last time around. Solid caramel flavor with some nice nectarine accents. Original 2.1 Chattanooga, Tn. - Riverside Spirits, 12 oz bottle. Murky, medium copper pour, light, but long lasting off-white head. Heavy diactyl aroma - slightly off-putting and thick. Flavor is slightly sweet with some caramel but is dominated by the same diactyl notes found in the aroma. Slighlty buttery, and not too good! Mouthfeel is a bit harsh. Thomas Creek seems to be hit and miss.

shrubber85 (11015) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 19, 2007
Bottle. Cooked vegetable and caramel malt aroma. Dark amber with small head. Sour milk and caramlel malt flavor - high acidity. Mild hops finish. Drinkable but not by much - beats most of their other beers.

jcwattsrugger (12314) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2007 12oz bottle-pours a foamy white head and amber color with effervescence. Aroma is malt-caramel. Taste is light medium fruit, malt-caramel. Infected??? They seem to be aware that some product doesnt go out at optimal/acceptable to the beer drinker condition and are working on it. Seems to affect their bottled product more than kegs. 1.8 *070421- rerate-on tap @HopfestNC-pours a thin off white head and amber color. Aroma is mild medium malt-caramel, secondary English hops. Taste is medium malt-caramel, secondary English hops-bitter. Occasional. OK carbonation. 3.0 I cant feel right about eliminating the first score, so average=2.4
