3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11.2oz Bottle. The pour was a murky gold with a light brown hue and a small (1 finger or less) white fizzy head that diminished rapidly down to a thin film with a small collar, which did create some fair runny lacing.
The aroma was of a light grain malt and a musty doughy yeast with notes of apple, pears, banana and a hint of spice.
The taste was very malty with a nice fruity ester from the beginning, and then progressed with a strong yeast presence and a mild spicy bitterness towards the end. The flavor lingered for an average amount of time after the swallow, with a mild alcohol warming sensation at the very end.
Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a ticklish carbonation.
Overall this was a somewhat light Strong Ale both in body and in flavor, although it does offer an exceptionally smooth drinkability...

Gassy yellow-orange with a plentiful foamy head. Yeasty, lightly spiced aroma, herby. Slightly plasticy first hit, then malty and very dry, and much nicer. Smooth and tasty but with a bitter bite to it.

11.2 ounce stubby brown .. Deep gold .. Very solid foam .. Mild yeast, yeasty hay, straw, solid bitterness, and dried out honeycomb .. Easy palate .. Quite a dry beer .. I actually really like this, not awfully deep but enjoyable .. . . I asked a sheep fucker how many sheep he’s fucked in his lifetime; he fell asleep thinking about it.
