I was excited to finally try a Troegs. Obviously, they make some well reviewed beers on this site. The beer poured a nice orange, amber with a decent head. The aroma was slightly citrus with ample hop smell coming through. The flavor was alright. Not as bitter as I was hoping for and the finish was quick. Reading the other reviews I’m going to try a couple of other bottles and see if I change my opinion. Otherwise, this was just an average beer for me. Drinkable, but average.

Nice sweet malty base with a grapefruit hops bite. Very well balanced. Refreshing with a nice dry finish.

Very clear, dark golden straw colored with a thick, fizzy head. Peaches and pineapples waft over grass and sweet caramel. Taste like a fruity hops sandwich -- not bitter, but round and malty. Slightly thin body with a nice smooth finish.

An easy drinking amber ale with good malt and a slightly stronger hop note than usual. One of my favorite session beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Brickwall in Asbury. Pour is a nice deep amber with a small light head. Aroma of citrus, hops and some spice. Flavor is similiar. Nice hop bit with citrus and a malty sweetness near the end. Like this one. Been wanting to try it then ran into it at Brickwall. Liked it alot.

Bottle. Nice amber color that pours with a medium head. More hops in the aroma then in the palate, do I sense a bit of floral sweetness? If you like a hoppy amber this is for you. Not a favorite but an ale that I would look for when available.

Hopback is a fitting name for this beer - the aroma is unmistakeably of hops, and there is only a slight amount of bitterness. There is also a taste of citrus and flowers. This is a surprisingly good brew, very hoppy.

I’ll spare everyone with the details this time. This is essentially a pleasant slightly malty amber ale with a fairly long nutty finish and a hint of hops.
