COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
From a true "city of neighborhoods" we offer our take on a "biere de mars, " or a ruddy farmhouse ale. In true Philadelphia fashion, European and American ingredients are melded into a complex, ruby ale with flavors of toasted malt and rye. It's the perfect accompaniment for some quality time enjoyed in the backyard (or on the front stoop) of your urban farmhouse.

Poured a red amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, citrus, rye, pine, nuts, and caramel. Taste of caramel, crystal malt, citrus fruits, toffee, pine, toast, and nuts. Chewy mouthfeel. Solid, just nothing mind-blowing.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Well, its red, as one might expect. Foamy white head. Smells like toast and brown sugar, tastes like toast and other malty, sweet flavors. There is an odd note in there - rye? maybe? no? anyone? Woody note as it warms. Simple and tasty.

Draught: Aroma of malts, rye, and a hint of smoke. Poured amber/copper in color with a small, off-white head that diminished. Sparkling. Tastes of malts, chocolate, coffee, cola, and rye. Medium body. Thin texture. Soft carbonation. Nothing to the finish.
