COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Eye of the Hawk is an excellent, strong, rich bodied ale that is "Bottle Conditioned" to perfection. "Eye" is coppery reddish-amber in color and its unique taste is the result of a judicious mix of caramel and pale malted barley, balanced with Cluster, Cascade and Saaz hops. This gives the Eye its luxurious flavor, substantial mouth-feel and that slightly dry finish.

Pours a slightly hazy amber with some khaki colored head. Aroma is very sweet consisting of caramel malt, brown sugar, toffee and bread. Taste is also sweet with just a hint of bitterness in the finish that does not linger. Medium bodied and the alcohol is hidden well. I would prefer more hops to offset the sweetness.

355 ml bottle bought at Oliver’s The Delicatessen in Central.

Cloudy hazy amber red colour with some dirt-like yeast sediments; One finger head and crumpety off-white foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with slight carbonation; Fragrant aroma of blackcurrant, dark fruit, light floral, nectar, ale malt, cinnamon and thin grass; Nice sweet taste of rich ale malt, with blackcurrant, light dark fruit, molasses, alcohol, earth, strong yeast, light spices, liquorices, lime and grass; Full body, slick and rich palate; Mouth feel is rich ale malt, sweet in a pretty nice way. Strong blackcurrant and dark fruits, round out with strong yeast and spicy hops. Booze is nicely potent and not screaming, managing itself pretty well at this level. Nice! Hoppiness is nice blackcurrant, dark fruit, cinnamon and earth in nose and taste, plus expressive limey grassy hops for a nice and lasting bitter finish; Fairly dry aftertaste, rich and fulfilling to mouth.

Comments:This one is big and bold, true to what ASA is about. Aroma and taste is quite simple but works out exactly as intended. Sweetness and booze is just right and well balanced by the rich and fruity hops. Underrated for sure, very enjoyable and pleasing. Will buy again!

Copper colored on our with small silky beige head. Aroma is hops and malt, nicely blended. Taste follows the same pattern with some fruit sweetness. Mouthfeel is heavy and slick, pleasant aftertaste. Vastly underrated, this one.

firemarshal (178) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Bottle into snifter. Opaque dark amber in color. Nose is very pleasing and includes honey, floral, light citrus, caramel malt, and doughy aromas. Taste is very nice, with bready sweet malt flavor up front with a nice herb balance. It belies the high abv. Full bodied, thick feel, average carbonation, medium dry finish. To articulate it properly: Me likey ;)

Love Eye of the Hawk! The amber color is right in tune with the season. Tastes slightly sweet. Great finish also.

This is a strong full bodied amber ale that carries well its 8% ABV. The finish is bitter similar to an IPA. Thumbs up !
