Draught, Capitol Hill
Cloudy dark amber. Not much head. Fruity aroma (banana, with hints of smoke). Whoa - really pithy hop bitterness. Fluffy body (thatís good malts) but kind of fizzy (and bad carbo). Interesting - a way overhopped weizen - but the components arenít working all that well together. The grapefruity bitterness is doing its own thing, the sweet banana weizen is doing its own thing, but they arenít coming together and the beer suffers as a result.
