COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Horny Devil is our interpretation of a Belgian-style Golden Ale. Brewed with authentic Belgian ingredients including candi sugar and a Trappist yeast strain, its fruity and spicy aromas include notes of orange, banana, and peppercorns. Coriander seeds add refreshing citrus notes which meld seamlessly with the beer’s delicate malt. Horny Devil finishes with a lively carbonation and a refreshingly dry finish.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2005
Aroma is yeasty with a strong candy element. Pours a yellow-orange, minimal head. Yeasty flavours with tangerine. A dry, sweet finish with mild alcohol.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2005
Apple, lemon and alcohol aroma. Cloudy orange with no head. Big alcohol kick in the finish. Strong tangerine, yeast and alcohol flavours. Powdery on the palate. Lots of candy sugar in the finish as well.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - DEC 24, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2005 Light golden with minimal head. Aromas of corriander, banana, caramel, candy apple, grape and white wine, Taste was smooth for the ABV with a good touch of alcohol. Very sweet with corriander and banana dominating the tastes. Palate is creamy, but the sweetness takes over a little. Good winter brew overall.

asheft (2925) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2005
Glowing dark yellow, almost clear, with fine white topping that recedes to patches and a prominent ring. Sweet, peachy, white grape and oxidized/candy aroma with hints of tangy-soft banana and corriander nicely blended with alcohol--a bit too sweet. Woody grape bitter flavour with sweet malt and contrapuntal alcohol and bitterness. Would be better if this beer were drier and a bit more woody/musty. The pleasant corriander flavour comes in late and lingers with the malt sweetness. The alcohol flavour is not very strong, making this brew surprisingly easy drinking for the abv. Medium body, medium carbonation, smooth and warming.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 14, 2005
Cloudy golden body with no head at all, and very low carbonation. Very sour for a BSA, and chewy. Mild spicy orange aroma compliments a dry, hoppy finish. A flavor like lightly toasted almonds, hints of caramel and fresh grass. Like the description indicates, this is a complex beer. Interesting.

notalush (5716) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 14, 2005
Clear golden with a copper tint, no head to speak of - aroma of coriander, pear, apple, vanilla - quite dry, and the pear, apple and other fruits combine with this to give it an almost cider-like flavor - some hops come in late, as does orange peel and lemon zest - very apparent alcohol - I expected more from Alesmith; this is actually pretty average.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - DEC 14, 2005
@ Alesmith: Hazy golden amber color with a small white head. Aroma and flavor are pretty similiar. Sweet and fruity. Fair amount of spices (mostly coriander) some yeastiness. At 10% the alcohol hides well with a smooth warming sensation.

legion242 (2344) - Richardson, Texas, USA - NOV 21, 2005
WOW! I am really surprised how average this turned out to be. I always expect more from Alesmith. Slightly dry and not very fruity. Alcohol is well hidden. Otherwise, really pedestrian.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2005
I saved this for my #1700 best i have at the time.Cloudy amber color,small head that faded quickly to leave nothing behind.The aroma was malty and sweet with a nice fruity side juicyfruit in some ways,spicy and quite floral.The flavor was fantastic,considering it’s been awhile since i had an Alesmith or any really good brew.Nice citrusy side straight away,with a nice spiciness coming on towrds the middle and alsting to the end.The alcohol manages to make a decent appearance but not getting in the way of the other flavors.This was a damn fine brew and well worth having a few more for later trials as it ages.
