bhensonb (12173) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 27, 2007
Bottled 14/6/05. Aroma of malt supported by stone fruit. Reddish copper color with a frothy beige head that collapsed with some lacing. Medium bodied. The malt is mixed with fruit. The carbonation is medium. The finish is not very dry. However, the flavor profile is complex - varying malts mingling with ale fruitiness. Hints of darker fruits come forth in the long finish. Really decent. Upon reflection it reminds of Wychwood Hobgoblin.
