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.

Bottled (backlog). Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is caramel malts, some grains, a bit of alcohol as well as a slight bit of floral notes. Flavour is caramel, some floral notes as well as some mild alcohol to it. Balanced, but nothing all too special.

Looks good. Pours clear orange/amber, however it does the scent of a poor home brewed ale. And not surprisingly, it has a acetaldehyde after-taste. Hop presence lacking and syrupy malt mouthfeel. Not a particularly tasty strong ale. Would not buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a nice Amber/dark copper color. Aroma of sweet malts and faint hops. Taste is a mouthful of malts. Some floral notes from the hops. It's an ok strong ale.
