TAR (2410) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Crimson with rusty highlights. Pasty dirty-white head exhibits good retention. Potently phenolic and estery nose comprised of dried strawberry, pecan skin, leather, breadcrust, black licorice, apricot, butter toffee, plum jam, dried leaves. Heavenly saliva-inudcing dusty yeast character. Soft, natural carbonation. Upfront burst of plasticlike phenols is curtailed by remarkably clean, lush and dextrinous British malt character. Robust breadcrust edginess accentuates the firm pale malt-derived cookielike snap which contrasts with the bouncier vanilla and toffee-glazed-nut base. Wonderfully deep, fat, and creamy malt. Peppery hops lend subtle appetizing acids along with a rustic twinge of autumn leaves and soft tealike flavors. Ripe red plum flesh and dried leather contribute more lift and drinkability while hops steadily tease with a gently coarse earthy bitterness. Finishes flawlessly balanced and cleanly attenuated with a sassafras root dryness kissed with succulent esters and prolonged beefy malt. A deceptively simple beer, which means most folks here likely won’t give it a second glance. Which is unfortunate considering how rare it is to find these foundational styles so well-balanced, devoid of flaw, and endlessly drinkable. But hats off to Masia Agullons for doing just that.

Nothing really special. Hazy golden body with a small white head. Aroma is hoppy (citrus, grassy) with some biscuits. Refreshing, nothing more.

bhensonb (10361) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours very hazy amber with a foamy transient beige head. It’s a great aroma - perfumey/floral. Full bodied. It’s lightly spicy. It’s firmly malty. It’s very floral. It’s delicious. Think they nailed, nay, improved, the style.
