hopscotch (9160) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle… Lightly hazed amber ale with a mountainous, frothy, white head. Great retention. It took me a full ten minutes to pour this into my glass without the head breaching the top of my glass – not a good sign. The aroma provided caramel, biscuit and a moderately woody, acidic funk – a suggestion of key lime peel. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. Based on the flavor and the size of the head, there’s definitely an infection taking root, but it doesn’t create an offensive beer. The mild tartness actually adds some character and interest to an otherwise bland, boring example of a bland, boring style. Finishes tangy and lightly sweet.
