COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available each winter from the first of November until it runs out, Isolation ale is amber in color, malty and strong. We consider it a traditional winter warmer, without the addition of fruits or spices.

Tap. Reddish color, good lacing. Little aroma. Malty and warming. Slight bitter to go with a subtle sweetness. Pretty simple but was great for a cold day.

Bottle. Pours reddish amber with light khaki head. Nose has citrus, toast and very mild pine. Flavor is rich malt toastiness exceeded by wonderfully bitter and woody hoppiness. Finish is warm, slightly earthy with bitterness lasting in the cheeks. This beer is wonderful in its simplicity - my choice when I am snowed in.

On tap at Old Chicago as part of a mini tour. I like that they avoided spices. Still, it was a bit raw.

Not much in the form of aroma or taste. Has a lager aftertaste. Disappointing.

Dark amber color with an off white head and good lacing. Aroma of floral hops mixed with light fruit and bready malt with a touch of caramel sweetness. Smells very fragrant and nice. Taste follows nose and is well balanced, with hops having a more herbal than floral character and you get some toastiness from the malt. Crisp mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation. Drinkable and pleasant. Had on tap at the Bier Station.

Drunk from a bottle. Appears to have a nice head. Slightly hoppy and sweet. Not really the best.

Frahmo (316) - Idaho, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Brown color with a thick persisting light brown head. Great malty taste with a good hop kick towards the end. Great overall taste, I need more of this guy.

IndianaRed (2606) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Bottle pours a slightly hazy deep amber with a dense, think and lasting pillowy sandy head. Noble hops and slightly toffee malt aroma. Rich malty flavor, some bittering hops but not the west coast american variety. A little metallic touch, but a beer that tastes bigger than it is.
