Orange pour. Light head. Aroma is all cedar with a light malty note. Flavor is cedar and more cedar. I like cedar, otherwise I wouldn’t enjoy this beer.

I think JDub brought this to the RBWG. Dark orange pour. Huge cedar aroma, spice and overwhelming. Spicy cedar, creamy malt and slight touches of citrus. Awesome.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2010
Tap @ Brass Tap. Poured a clear dark golden color with a medium beige head. Aroma is cedar, I really didn’t get much else. Body is medium to full with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor is cedar, nothing but cedar with some sweetness. I might have rated this higher but I found it way too one dimensional andt the cedar extremely over powering.

pours amber with a thin white head. smells of that delicious musty cedar that covers up most of the scent of the base beer, some hop smell coming through. Tart, creamy, hops and pepper all attack the tongue at once. definitely get that must in the taste. the cedar covers up the taste of the batch 69 mostly. the alcohol isnt really detectable, maybe a bit on the back of the throat.

Pours a hazy orange. Nose is spicy cedar, booze, sweet caramel and tomatoes. Flavor is sweet spices, wood, caramel, tomatoes, grass, pepper. The tomato flavor weirded me out.

Growler from the brewery. Thanks kiefdog for the share. Pours cream ale yellow-orange with an off-white head. Nose is cedar, bread, malt, and peppery spices. Flavor is similar with cedar dominating and the peppery spiciness close behind. Finish has the cedar taking away the harshness of the cream ale’s normal finish. Medium bodied and very enjoyable- along with the peach, this is the best of the cream ale treatments. For a cream ale: awesome.

MeadMe (1319) - Riverview, Florida, USA - FEB 21, 2010
On draft at Cigar City. A: Pours a nice vibrant orange hue. Tall creamy head, excellent retention and some nice lace. S: Lightly bready, tropical fruits, hints of lemon.... loads of cedar. T: Mostly cedar to be honest. Peppery, woody goodness in a glass. Hints of base beer remain beneath. Light citrus, candy sweetness, light grassy hops. M: Medium in body, good carbonation. If you like lots of cedar in your beer this one is for you. D: Good not great.

Growler from CCB. Pours a generally clear amber to copper color with a one finger white head. Aroma is sweet and floral with notes of cedar, pepper, spice, wood, caramel, toffee, floral esters, floral hops. Flavor is sweet and floral with notes of piney hops, wood, cedar, caramel, honey, ripe dark fruit, hints of floral hoppiness. Generally medium body with a sweet and cedar finish. Interesting treatment for the double cream ale. . . .
