Suttree (5259) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2009
Mildly could orange, decent off-white head. Citrusy, peppery aroma Flavor is surprisingly bitter at first, some bready, biscuity malts in the background. The bitterness is surprisingly harsh and rough, in a good way. Nicely unrefined and a pretty good session ale.

Gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Corn on the nose. Medium malt with a strong presence of sweet corn. Good carbonation but just a tad thin and watery. Pretty decent bitter clean and crisp. Not really special but good.
