THE Barleywine tasting. Not a Barleywine! But a nice warm up! Thanks Paul. Clear amber beer, tidy off white head. Fresh palate with a little fine carbonation. A little sweet malt underneath decent fresh and fairly bitter hops. Trace of skunk, mild citrus. Semi dry finish. Good bitter linger. Decent stuff.

Deep clear amber color, small steady white head, some lace. Gooseberry and caramel in the hoppy nose. Medium-bodied. Caramel, gooseberry bush hoppyness, citrus in the flavor. Well, this is not "speciality grain" as RB says but quality amber ale.
