frankenkitty (2006) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2007
Served with a sheet-lacing ecru head over a deep yet clear copper body. Soapy florals above pepper in the aroma carry through to the flavor. I enjoyed it despite my scant notes.

Nose of fruit, flowers, and pine. The brew is clear copper with ruby highlights. The white creamy head is mostly lasting & leaves good lace. Bitter and burnt flavor with a heavy citrus presence and a long finish. The full body is dry and soft. Very nice indeed.

Braudog (6342) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Draft at the brewpub: Shiny copper. Sweet and tart together at once. A starker version of their pale ale. Almost baked apple sourness at the end. Livens up a bit as it warms, as the moldiness settles into a bit more of a fruity bite.
