This Special Ale is, in reality, a reconstructed exhumation of the very first ale that we ever brewed way, way back, in 1993. Brewed with a big head, a muscular malty thorax, a silky texture & all strung together with a hoppy sweet nerve sack... yum.

What a refreshing change of pace from the norm! This brew has got it all going for it! The pillowy, tan head, copper red hue in a tall tulip glass is wonderful. Aromas of resinous, piney hops, mild citrus and a hint of grapefruit. Some great, blended flavors going here! Very well balanced, mild malts, with a forward taste of hops bite. Nothing in this brew is overpowering in the aroma of flavors dept. All of the great beer aspects mingle perfectly in this brew. The palate only leaves you asking for more....super smooth, with a finish of some hops and citrus. Very refreshing! Looking forward to picking up another bottle of this soon! Like tomorrow!

Light an delicate aroma. Sweet and fudgy taste. Well balanced and not overly hoppy. The taste lingers and evolves with a splendid bitterness at the end ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
