COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is brewed in memory of our friend Tom Allen. It is a big and smooth ale like Tom would have enjoyed. Cheers.

Deep gold colour, with a small, diminishing head. Hoppy aroma, but there’s a distinct diacetyl butterscotch edge that I though distracted. The butterscotch persists in the flavour, again with plenty of hops and some malt in the background. Sharp edge on the finish. I doubt that the diacetyl is intentional (others haven’t mentioned it), so I suspect an imperfect bottle. Not ruined, but could be better. I doubt I’ll get the chance to sample another to make sure. Thanks to Mike (The_Beer_God) for this one. Bottled.

Kinz (3362) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Coppery gold body, a touch fizzy, decent head fades entirely. Nose is sweetish, and clearly hoppy. Very similar to the Golden IPA this was spawned from (upped the malt some, 20% more hops). Faint biscuit is quickly overwhelmed by earthy hops, good, dry bitter finish. Nice.

Empties in the glass a golden body with a tall foamy tanned head. Nose is hoppy and sort of sweet with light caramel and a malt backbone enriching it. Light spiciness to this as well. Taste is hoppy but contained while the malt and sweeter flavors come through more. Maybe toffee this go ’round. There is a mild bitterness to this as well. Not overdone. Bit oily in spots and hints of dryness as well. Finishes with a hop bitterness and a mild sweetness. Fainter malt notes carry this through to the end. Good beer!
