TheAlum (5909) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2011
UPDATED: APR 13, 2011 Cask on tap at Owen and Engine (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice straw yellow hazy pour, a big offwhite cakey head, huge actually with great lacing, good stick around. Aromas are bready malts, cereal grains, gentle with a touch of mellow honey and ok coriander, nothing overbearing which is a good thing. Some touches of honeycrisp apples, more bread, and fruity and coriander nose, mellow sweet and quite pleasant, gentle. Initial is gentle, sweet breads and doughy grains, cereal, with touches of apples, coriander, very mellow, doesn’t take over the palate at all. Some lingering apple, maybe a touch of pear. Really, honeycrisp apples and bread with a mellow coriander bite, gentle cask carbonation, frothy and enjoyable. Simple, fruity, the coriander seems to bring out more fruit, gentle, with a touch of bitterness into the finish and lingering esters, bigger honeycrisp apple presence, and bready grains. Ok. Gentle is the theme, which I respect that they don’t make a Coriander bomb here. Nice cask beer, maybe a touch sweet but that’s just me, I think. Not my favorite Metro treatment, but an interesting beer. I prefer the base quite a bit, but the coriander, strengthwise, holds back.. and nothing is worse than cloying coriander.
