Sammy (8910) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2009
Courtesy of Hopdog, thanks Steve! Pours medium yellow with some white foam. Yeasty with a little hop aroma. Lots of lace dots follow. Very smooth drinking and well-hidden a.b.v. A bit funky yeast taste with a nice understated bitterness, some orange and even a little bannana. Not hop-it but interesting.

Taste of caramel malts, spices, banana, melon, citrus fruits, pine, tropical fruits, and some alcohol in the finish. I like Something Hoppy better.

On tap at North Wales (and sipping off a Growler now!). Poured a deep and hazy golden/amberish color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of floral hops, fruitiness (bananas), spiciness, and citrus rinds. Tastes of bananas, citrus, fruity, toasty, floral, and had a lighter breadiness. Spicey finish. Alcohol content well hidden.
