On tap @ Crowbar. It actually is a reddish looking one this. Deep amber and quite cloudy in the glass with a nice lasting creamy yellow-beige head. On the nose this has a fair amount of red berries blended with a wet grassy kinda silo grassy thing. Oh, it’s quite on the sweeter side of the scale this. In the mouth it’s definitely well carbonated and it has a oily mouthfeel. Kinda needle - herby in a way? Lots of pine bitterness. Sweet concentrated berries definitely located here, as is a mild roastiness. A nice alco warmth gives this another’s dimension. The more time it gets in the glass the more it opens up turning almost in to a flavor bomb. Is this some sort of American strong ale? It sure tastes like that, and I quite like American strong ales. 25.05.2014
