COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
bottled, special
2013 Prototype Challenge
This is no worn-out, park-bench, special-brew-swigging vagrant; this is an amped-up, ranting, street corner hobo. A lord among hobos if you will. Brewed with mountains of wheat, rye, cara and crystal malts, fermented with an American ale yeast and bittered with Amarillo & Centennial, this 4.2% beer is what happens if something classy like a European wheat beer goes to live in Vegas.
Malts – Extra pale, Cara, Crystal, Wheat & Rye
Hops – Amarillo & Centennial

nimbleprop (4873) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 16, 2014
12oz bottle at La Birreria in Andorra. Pours a hazy orange with some creamy white head. Nose is an odd mix, citrus, soap, pine but a wheat ale is lurking with a bit of clove and grass and spice. Flavor brings the IPA character back, mild malt, orange, pine, grapefruit, caramel. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter finish.

harrisoni (13712) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle from BottleDog, London and drunk at home. Clear deep amber colour lasting ivory head. Looks in great condition. Sweet pine hop aroma. Some toffee from the malt, some resiny hops. Some bitterness on the finish which is a little insistent. Yes a grapefruit piney flavour which is pretty good. A bit like an IPA but without the heat. Decent I thought.

dogbomb (943) - ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle. Deep gold with a thick slightly dirty white head. Nose is hoppy with grapefruits and a hint of cherry. Taste is pleasant. A wheaty heavy base, with grapefruits, slight mango, slight cherry. Very "full" and bready with a dry finish. Hits the spot. Doesn’t give you too much "zing" and keeps you wanting more.
