MadRobin (1930) - Silver Spring, USA - JUL 5, 2014
On tap at Whole Foods in Market Square in Fairfax, VA. Hazy, amber-cerise with a 2-finger khaki head and excellent lacing. Aroma of orange, butterscotch, rye, bourbon, vanilla, oak and caramel. Taste of caramel, rye, pine, bourbon, butterscotch and vanilla with citrus at the finish. Medium/full body and medium/high carbonation. A well-crafted red ale nicely rounded by barrel aging. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
