Good appearance, light-medium brown with big foamy head. Smells pretty neutral.. some slight malt. Taste is biscuit, soapy straw. Fairly smooth but weak.

Strykzone (6860) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2016
12 ounces from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Amber and generally clear beer with an off white two finger head. Caramel and grain flavor and aroma. Noble hops bring a little sulfur. Just a little fruit. Not exciting but at 4% . . .

hayduke (4985) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 2, 2016
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured translucent amber with dingy off-white head. Nose of Noble hops. Medium body. Smooth in the mouth. Malls dominate with hops ion the background. Something like coffee or chocolate is there as well. There is light bitter finish but mostly it just tails off. OK drinking but not very excising.

jrodooo5 (1542) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Pours transparent amber w/ out much of a head & little lacing. The aroma is relatively faint w/ some semi sweet malts coming through. The flavor is quite clean & nicely balanced. Its not bursting in taste but its light, drinkable, & all around an ok beer!

Pours a slightly hazed orange golden color with off-white head. Spice, vanilla, and some malts on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with spice, vanilla, roast. Not bad.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2016
Can poured into a snifter. 3.25 A: Moderately hazed amber copper color. One finger of frothy beige head. Retention is below average and half a finger of lacing is left. 3.5 S: Toasty caramel. Light mineral with earthy lager yeast. Bready maltiness. Maybe a hint of apple fruitiness. Malty yet refreshing. 3.5 T: Tastes like it smells. Toastiness and caramel are the strongest flavors. Mild mineral, earthy, and bready tones. Apple and pear fruitiness. 3.75 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Good richness and velvety texture, especially given the ABV. 3.5 D: Decent beer. Doesnt blow me away, but is easily drinkable. ★ 651 characters DavoleBomb, Feb 16, 2016

nuplastikk (5840) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 15, 2016
12oz bottle. Filtered amber-copper body. Thin, off-white head. Malt centered, not much a hop balance. Medium bodied, lighter than most amber lagers. The aroma is a little unappetizing, earthy and stale. Drinkable, but definitely wouldnt want a sixpack.

TATE (406) - Lubec, Maine, USA - FEB 13, 2016
Bottle. Pours amber with little head. Lots of large bubbles. Sweet malt and some vegetable aroma. Bit malt up front with not much on the back end, not balanced very well. Lots of flavor for the ABV but pretty forgettable.

355ml can. Quizzical gusher. It pours fizy and highly-carbed with a short-lived head. Aroma is floral caramel,, hint of nuts and sulphur. It is highly-carbed, herbal, light spice, bready character underneath, slight watery. Coudl be better.
