COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hampshire has a huge toasted malt flavor balanced by assertive hoppiness. The finish is long and lingering with the malt and hop notes blending with alcohol warmth. Two row English malts (pale, crystal and chocolate); Cascade, Mt. Hood and East Kent Golding hops.

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 6, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a rocky light tan head that recedes quickly. Aroma is of spicy hops, crystal malt, yeast, and a subtle pepperiness. Initial taste is spicy hops, that gives way to malty sweetness, with some noticeable alcohol and ends with solid bittering in the finish, with a lingering, thickness at the back of the tongue. The mouthfeel was smooth and creamy with a medium body. Very nice balance.

Bottle. Copper pour with a very light copper-white head that fades into a ring. Aroma is dark fruit, caramel malt, and tea. Medium mouthfeel - carbonation is present. Flavor is toasted malts, caramel, grass, tea, and just a touch of alcohol warmth. This is really solid, drinkable beer. Quite enjoyable.
