Some folks might like this. We’re just not a big fan of the citrusy beers and this was quite hoppy.

Draft at Tavern 77 Columbia, SC. The ale poured a deep dark Amber with almost no head. there was lacing for the limited head. A nice Amber ale with some balanced bitterness and sweet malts. The ale had a medium body with soft carbonation. Th finish was dry with some bitterness in the back of your mouth.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Comes out of the tap a slightly hazy mahogany with a thick, fine-bubbled buff head that leaves generous lacing. Malty aroma has hoppy, woody and yeasty hints. Flavor is rather hoppy, almost like an IPA, woody with some malt and a bit of yeast. Texture is smooth and fairly tingly, leaving a woody-hop and malty finish. I hope this review will "spur" you to try one.

Clean rugby red pour with one finger of sandy tan head. Nose shows diacetyl and fruit skin and cooked peaches. Flavor shows alcohol upfront and some weird fruity notes. Strange beer
