COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our unique mild/brown ale has a predominantly malty palate and combines with eight different malts to provide a strong malt base and a dark brown color. Caramelized and grilled Maui Sweet Onions are added during the mashing process and at the end of boil to extract natural sugars and savory and sweet onion flavor. **This beer commemorates the Maui Onion Festival which takes place in May at the Whaler’s Village in Ka’anapali.

On tap @ Lake Saucer BeerFeast 2012 Amber brown brew with some beige head. Nose of caramel malt, onions, roast, and sweetness. Tastes like caramelized onions or those crispy strings that come in a can - some sweetness. Very unique.

Malty cocoa aroma with a hint of onion! Surprise! A beer that actually has San adjunct that you can sense. Pour is a very malty brown and unfortunately translucent for the most part. Lacing is quite superb and blanket-like. The flavor. Like a beef pot roast with lots of caramelized onions. Great at dinner time, whenever that may be for you, 6pm...3am, however you treat yourself. Other times of the day... not so much.

GABF 2011. Clear dark nutty brown, no head. Smells of dark earthy malts, some biscuit, and a bit of toffee. Flavor has some rich toasty toffee malts, a hint of chocolate, very very mild bitterness at the finish. Somewhere between dry and sweet. Not bad, just average.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth. Excited to try this one. The beer pours a hazy brown color with a tan head. The beer smells a little bit like toffee with a ton of carmelized onions mixed in. The flavor is also very strong on the onions, with some toffee and dirt-like notes mixed in. While I like onions, they are just too strong in this beer and it is incredibly hard to drink. I had a four ounce sample and about 75 percent of it was drain poured since I just couldn’t stomach having any more. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. I applaud the experimentation, but I just couldn’t get into this beer.

On tap in the food pavilion at GABF. Pours with a hazy brown to bronze body with a tan head. Interesting nose: fruity, sweet, medium caramel notes, light umami. Flavors of caramelized onion, fruit, light meaty umami notes, and a bit bready. Very unique. Medium bubbles, lighter bodied, dry. Odd, but pretty good. Lasting onion taste left in your mouth.

(Draught) Pours a clear amber-brown body with a medium beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, grilled sweet onion, and caramel. Flavor of sautéed onions, roasted malt, lightly toasted grain, and caramel. Interesting. Far better than anticipated.

(Draught) clear orange-brown with tan bubbles that last. Nose of umami, caramelized onions, anchovies, and onions that sat in an skillet all afternoon. Taste of caramel, crispy onion strings, light chocolate malt. Well carbonated, linger of sweet onions. Such a weird beer. I love onions, but didn’t love this beer. It was really just ok.

draft... medium brown, not much of head, a bit watery but ok... nails the onion, tons of it, too much almost, smells like an onion bun, I love onion so it works for me... the taste sadly doesn’t translate, exactly like the nose, no one wants to drink pureed onions... nice effort but needs some work
