COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer derives its name from one of the world’s tallest peaks which, loosely translated, means "goddess rich in sustenance." Chock full of malted barley with mild hop overtones, this ale itself is rich in sustenance.

Quayles personal favorite. If it’s good enough for Quayle, It’s good enough for me. Great beer. Got a couple growlers of this stuff after drinking a few pints. It was a very very good beer. Best thing invented since motarized tie racks.

Tap at Vine st. Clear mahogany red with a light khaki head. Amazing amber aroma of caramel, gentle toffee, gentle earthiness, and a light grassy bitterness. Taste was smooth, complex, medium bodied but full flavored. Toffee, lots of caramel, candy sugar, an earthy bitterness, and resoundingly balanced for a sweet-ish amber. Not hoppy, but just bitter enough. Pure delight.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Draught at the Southern Sun. 8 oz sample. Beer was a medium, hazy-brown color with an average-to-large, creamy, white, mostly lasting head. The aroma was really agreeable—and while it wasn’t flashy, it was darn engaging. Toasty and fruity. Malty with moderate notes of toasted grain, caramel; Hoppy with moderate notes of green grass and green tea; Yeasty with trace note of basement and a light note of dough; Moderate miscellaneous notes of peach, vanilla and wood. The flavor was moderately sweet, lightly acidic with a long, tingly, lightly acidic finish. The body was light, the texture was watery and the carbonation was softer an average.

On tap at Vine Street Pub. Pour is clear amber with an off-white head and decent lacing. Perfumey, light roast, citrus, a touch of lemon, and biscuit in the aroma. Taste is light citrus, cereal, lemon, and biscuit with a light bitter finish. There is something about this beer that is pretty tasty but I can’t quite put my finger on it. Medium body with high carbonation .  Pretty nice amber.
