1/29/12. As I rise from my humble slumber upon my chaise whilst enjoying the finest in live entertainment, I spotteth this gem of a brew sloshing abouts in minest box chiller, kept cold by large blocks of the finest ice being hand fanned by lowly paid children. As I poppeth the cap dorned upon the top of this yee bottle, I see clean, white mist arising from the bottle like the pale ghost of my long lost sister, who died long ago of syphilis contracted from the dirtiest of Scottish merry men. The beer poureth smooth and clear light amber with a billowing, fluffy off-white head like a dirtied wig of yore worn thin by the longest of governmental disputed meetings. Disappointing, plain aroma, much like my sissy of a son who doth not fight the knights or ride thee away on a knighted horse. Nare a hint of anything worth expunging. A slightly tart flavor of fresh green apples picked by the finest of slaves ejaculates across my tongue followed immediately by dirt from the gardens and the slighest hint of sweet caramels my grandiest of mama’s used to procure from the shops in London when I was a child. Doth meh.
not great choppin’ wood. Merv wouldn’t drink this choppen wood. fucken hell.

Tallahassee, Fl. - New Leaf Market - 11.2 oz bottle. Light copper pour, little to no head. Pleasant nutty aroma, hint of perfume. Flavor is more sweet than bitter, pick up some brief vanilla and butterscotch notes, just a touch of fruitiness - apricots come to mind. Smooth, clean mouthfeel. Not bad.

Light brown oaky colour, very slight yeast haze. Malty aroma with slight floral hoppiness. Not very bitter but well balanced grainy, slightly yeasty flavour. Very drinkable, which is just as well as I have a case full.
