Enjoy the refreshment of the season and joys of fine brewing.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 10, 2012
12oz bottle: pours a clear copper orange with a spotty-lacing froth of off-white head. Has a lightly sweet, biscuity malty nose with some spicy rye character. Starts with fine carbonation and good fullness with a light caramel sweetness and toasted malts along with a touch of black pepper and herbal hops. Finishes drier and bittersweet. A pretty unique brew and goes down fairly smooth.

Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy yeast sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Interesting good brew.

tmoreau (2570) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2012
On tap at Brixie’s in Brookfield, IL., and shaker served showing a clear, golden amber color, with persistent, off white/cream toned head foam, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The aroma was both both toasty & bready, but more on the bready side, with husky graininess, and light caramel sweetness. Although an ale, Marzen-like characteristics were prevalent. Medium bodied and softly carbonated, the flavor was pro grain & malt, but offered a moderate hop bitterness that was earthy and lightly lingering. A pleasant creaminess advanced the mouthfeel, and a light sticky texture was also present. A decently sessionable harvest offering that was a refreshing diversion from both the highly spiced, and the recent sway toward heavily hopped, fall seasonal brews.

Bottle. Pours a hazy and slightly reddish amber color with a moderate head. Slightly, but somewhat hoppy smell. Taste has a bit of grain in it along with a slight bitterness. Nice frew.

Ar: Soft peppery notes, some peach, pineapple, and banana - spicy floral quality, too. Ap: Cloudy orange-amber - huge off-white head with great retention and thick Belgian-esque lacing. T: Pepper and clove up front - bitter orange and banana with a medium sweetness - bitterness is medium-high, very refined, and spicy - full maltiness - finish is lingering banana and toasted malt. P: Medium body, high carbonation - smooth and almost creamy - finish is dry. O: Great beer - full of fruitiness and a firm malty backbone - at the same time, graceful and refined.

Draft. Poured a nice amber color with some foamy white head. Great balance between all of the grains with the rye adding a nice slightly peppery touch. Great malt flavors made this very enjoyable.
