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.

This is one of my favorites. Strong, strong beer without the strong, strong sting. Mendicino made a masterpiece with this brew. I strongly suggest you give it a shot.

22 ounce bottle. I couldn’t find a date of any kind. Pours a 24 karat gold with a substantial head of foam that shrinks to aboot a quarter inch. Some nice lacing. I get caramel malt, fruity hops, some booze in the smell. Caramel malt and fruity tastes up front, mild bitterness mid palate, sweetish finish along with some alcohol and alcohol burning. Medium body and carbonation. A bit of a different bird here. I enjoyed the bottle and may pick up another.

12 oz bottle. Thought this beer was just average. It is slightly too sweet and a little boozy.
