BB 06June14. Poured a clear coppery amber colour with a one-finger off white foamy head that diminished quickly and laced poorly. Low carbonation with small bubbles. Aroma fresh and mild of grain malt, a trace of fruity hops, and a trace of yeast. Taste of sweet fruity malt and very mild hops. Medium body. Dry with mild bitterness on the finish. Good, but a bit sweet.

Old Hooky tastes like the beer that regular Hooky wants to be - more complex and notable than its sister it is a much more pleasurable drink. A sharp fruity nose and taste are the primary features. Very enjoyable.

Bottle. Brown colour with an off-white head with short duration. Aroma has notes of toasted malts, mild carmel with floral notes. Flavor is quite similar and predictable according to aroma, toasted malts, caramel, candy sugar and mild bittery.
