hopscotch (8539) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2009
Bottle… Clear copper ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The aroma was fragile to begin with, and Alan using an entire bottle of Resolve to clean up a GoT spill didn’t help much, but I was able to pull some gentle notes of toast and caramel from my glass. Light-bodied with medium carbonation. Balanced perfectly. Watery, and then dry finish. Refreshing. Bottle courtesy of TheCheeseMan!
