COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As days get shorter and sleeves get longer, Baxter Brewing releases its fall seasonal, Hayride Autumn Ale. A generous portion of two rye malts give the beer a full body, bready flavor, and subtle spiciness; while toasted malts provide a touch of sweetness and a rich, almost reddish hue. New Zealand Pacifica and Pacific Jade hops balance Hayride’s maltiness and suggest notes of oranges and tropical fruit. Finally, we cold-condition the beer on oak, with light additions of ginger, black pepper, and orange peel, bringing out the spiciness of the rye and rounding out the soft sweetness of the beer. Hayride will give a touch of warmth for those cool fall nights, while remaining deliciously drinkable.

GT2 (8163) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 6, 2012
12oz can thanks to jslot38. Pours a full haze deeper red with billowing beige foam. Great retention and spotty lacing. Nose is sweaty, strawberry, unsweetened tea, moving to sharp acetone, some lemon soap. Taste is bland, chalky, minerally with some astringent bitterness. Strange. Can’t even place a beer style on this one.

Palme (3163) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 23, 2013
0.355l can from my secret Santa 2012. This is a light cloudy deep dark chestnut-red one with a nice almost creamy looking medium sized top. On the nose it’s both spicy with caramelized pickled ginger, sweet caramel, and hoppy with a nice dark fruitiness. It smells almost a bit Christmassy, and definitely interesting. It’s somewhat average on the carbonation and it has a soft oily mouthfeel. More bitter than I would have imagined. Dusty straw, traces of licorice, dark slightly burned bread and a bit medicinal in the finish. Loads of things going on in this little puppy. Bitter, zesty and lingering slightly burned spicy aftertaste. I’m not quite sure, but I think I’m starting to enjoying this. 23.12.2012
