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.

I really had no idea what style this beer was. I was guessing at a scottish ale, or maybe a wierd bock style. I couldn’t tell. Malts are very nice, with an understated hop flavor in the middle. Good body, but an odd thinness to the flavor. Light alcohol taste, but not too strong. A decent beer, nothing really special, but alright.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 17, 2002
Hazy ochre. Thin, dense off white head. Steady, big bubbled carbonation. Honeyed malt aroma and light pine resin. Crisp yet mellow with a thick caramel and toasted malt base. Spicy alcohol and a toffee sweet candy nature. Medium body. Healthy resinous hop balance. Citric juiciness creeps in as it sits, as does a touch of stickiness. Finishes honey sweet with a vegetal bitterness and citric flair. Not very complex but enjoyable enough.

Very strong alcohol taste but not as much as i would have thought. Drink about three or four of these for a nice buzz.

Malty aroma. A light carmel malt taste. Not very much hops, more malt and alcohol taste. Be careful with this stuff.

Sweet malty aroma, with a hint of fruit and butter. The aroma and flavor were not at all strong...very subtle. The flavor combined very sweet malt with just a touch of hops. Slightly dry finish. Pretty hazy orange color with a small head.

Malt to the extreme. Finishes nicely, slight bitterness. Limit yourself to 1 if driving.

obxdude10 (2077) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2002
Very rich flavors, dark amber in color, kept a very nice soft lacy head, very well balanced, some stong hoppy flavors gave way to very rich malty undertones in the aftertaste, very drinkable, excellent beer

This beer still rocks and I’m standing behind my high rating. This beer rocks. A beautiful color. Well balanced with a very dry finish. I like.

Smells malty, looks light, tastes rather plain. its no B.F.D., but its better than most mass produced brews.
