COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. Hubbins Abbey is a dry, delicately-spiced, golden-amber ale, with just a hint of coriander in the nose and the subtle accent of bitter and sweet orange peel in the finish. But the focus here is the hops, those glorious little green petals that give beer its character and its pleasing bitterness. At High & Mighty, we use only Noble European hops because we believe they make better beer. Sure, they cost a bit more, but, dammit, we think you’re worth it.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2010 Good head, poor color. Tastes like batteries and old coins. Tries to have a brown nuttiness but just ends up with an off-sourness. Very disappointing and borderline unpleasant. It’s like an elderly woman’s perfume, and not in a sexy way.

A light orange brew with decent carbonation. Poured into a snifter. Be sure to let this sucker warm up! Funky bread and fruit aroma. Mouthfeel is lighter than expected, making this quite drinkable. Flavor is complex citrus-spice-fruit-apple with good yeast character. Finish is a bit hoppy and fruity-bitterness. Probably not your typical Belgian - much more lively and quaffable. Good stuff!

Orange in color. A foaming tan head. Mild flavor, balanced with hops and malt, Slightly floral with very meek spice and citrus hints in it as well.

So far I have not been a fan of any High & Mighty beers, but I am on a mission to find one I love. I have no doubt they have something that is gonna knock my socks off.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2010
A hazed orange amber ale with a thin thick frothy light moka head. A plesant herbaceous malt aroma with catnip, quite nice. In mouth, the same nice herbal malt, with wild cereals, almost saison-like, herbal hops, medium bodied. Quite nice. Bottled on June 4 2009, so almost 1 year old.

Pours hazy light amber color with thin off white head. Aromas of orange peel, corriander and Belgian yeast. Bitter citrus rind, floral hops and metallic flavors. Not very good. Thin body with average carbonation. I’m having a hard time finishing the bottle. I have yet to try a good beer from this brewery. Why do I keep buying their beers?

PorterPounder (5556) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 2, 2010
Clearwater, Fl - World of Beer - 22 oz bomber. Dark copper pour, sticky, dark, almost brown pour. Interesting aroma, some booziness, grapes, and some date-like sweetness. Flavor is sweet and slightly muddled and hard to put a finger on. Pick up some sour notes, a hint of vinegar, some dates and raisins. Mouthfeel is just so-so. Not sure what exactly this is trying to deliver, but it slightly misses the mark.

chickenflea (336) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - FEB 19, 2010
22-oz bottle. Pours a cloudy golden amber under a small fizzy white head. There was minimal lacing in the glass. Aroma is floral with spices. Hops are understated, balance with the dry spiciness of the brew. A little sauciness and paper napkin among the spices. Some apple cider notes. Light body and texture. Lively carbonation. Drinkable and interesting. This beer was 4 months old and could have set a little longer. It has promise, but came across as just a little rough.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 8, 2010
Bottle shared by argo0 on 8/24/08: Pours a hazy copper orange with a stringy-lacing white head. Aroma of fresh citrusy orange and biscuity malt with a touch of coriander. Body starts with decent fullness and carbonation with a mild, toasty caramel maltiness and earthy bitterness and grainy clove character. Pretty smooth, but could use more sweetness and less earthy bitterness.
