Drake (11116) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 17, 2009
22 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. This one is all head... about a 5:2 ration of head to beer. Dark brown colored pour. The head is tan, obviously very large, foamy, with good head retention and lacing. Aroma is faded herbal, leafy hops with some caramel notes. There’s something in there that is earthy and reminiscent of crayons. Taste is caramel, toffee, light roast, anise, citrus and earthy hops. Medium bodied. A little bit on the odd side but overall a pleasant beer.
