12 oz bottle, batch code 007029. A sour grassy aroma, wet grass. Red copper color, large foamy off white head. Flavor is sour, dry, like licking metal. Feel like I am having a CAT scan. Except for a slight bitterness and subtle warmth, no hops to be found. Maybe the next batch.

nuplastikk (6141) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 4, 2008
12oz bottle. Thick amber-brown color. Very thick bodied, with a strong, pungent amber malt taste. Delicately hopped, allowing the malt to take center stage. The sourness in the beer is very enjoyable and complex. Good example of a malty American Amber Ale.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 1, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2010 (Sample Date: 12/5/2009 Source:Food Lion) Rerate: Light citrusy grassy hop aroma. Slightly cloudy golden amber with small white head.Fairly dry and lightly grainy with grassy hop flavor. Dry moderately bitter finish. Original:12 oz bottle from local Food Lion. Slight carmelized malt nose with a touch of earthy grassy hops and some fruity sourness. Mostly clear deep amber brown with a moderate rocky tan head. Grain with light carmelized malts and grassy hops dominate flavor. There is some other stuff going on that is a touch sour, fruity, cardboardy, and soapy. Body is light with high carbonation. Finish is dry with a lingering grassy bitter astringency.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUL 6, 2008
12 oz bottle. Clear, dark amber with a slight off white head. Mildly sweet nose of caramel, and nuts, somewhat tannic. Earthy flavor, mildly nutty, light tea. Not bad, but not great, either. Light side of medium body with decent carbonation.
