7/27/2010: Piece Anniversary Ale... Aroma: Wow! Blast of leafy hops, juciy citrus, and pineapple! Appearance: Golden amber color; cloudy; thin white ring of foam; spotty lacing. Flavor: Sweet toffee malt that is quickly smothered by orange, tangerine, red grapefruit, and pine; seems to be some rye malt in there as well. Palate: Medium to medium-full body; smooth and oily. Overall: Lots of great hop flavor with relatively low bitterness!

Draught (6.5% ABV) at Piece in Chicago. Rating #16 for this beer.

Pours amber with ni8ce notes of hops on the noe that drive into a somewhat sweet but complex malt hit with a grapefruit hop backbone that goes on forever.

HonkeyBra (4036) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - AUG 21, 2011
On tap at the GTMW 2011. Pours a dark amber with a a near white though probably off white head. Aroma of fresh hops, nice malt, some pineapple and tropical fruit notes. Pine, resin, mild cookie dough and sweet bread malt. Flavor of a strong resin and citrus hop presence with notes of pine. Decent malt sweetness. Lots of nice fruit notes and bread dough, some cookie dough sweetness. Nice beer, I could drink a lot of this. Good, medium bodied, nice carbonation. Overall, solid, enjoyable, drinkable beer especially in the heat.

It pours a dark amber with a nice light tan head. Its got nice lacing and retention. It smells floral with hops. It tastes great. It has a nice complex taste that is strong is spicy yet fruity and has a great bitter taste at the end. This is very drinkable, I drank it all night long.

9th Anniversary Ale on tap at Brewery. First of all I want to say that it seems that this beer is different each year and that people are really rating entirely different beers here so I think the overall rating is kind of meaningless. That said the current offering in July of 2010 is as follows: Nice coppery pour with an off-white head. A bit of citrus and bread in the nose. Nice balanced hopping. Barkeep said it was a little hoppier than the Worryin’ Ale - but I would say it was definitely a solidly hoppy beer.Good medium-full mouthfeel. Very drinkable.

This review is for the 8th Anniversary, which was sold to me as an ESB at 6.5% ABV. And it was terrific. ESBs to me are usually a Zzzzz style, but I had a feeling that at Piece this particular style wouldn’t be boring. And I was rewarded for my confidence - this was a light, well-balanced, but still assertively hoppy ale that was quite good. Appearance was a light amber, with an abundant tan head. Aroma was sweet, citrusy hop notes. Flavor was more citrus hoppiness well balanced by maltiness. The overall character was a very pleasant but not over-the-top floral, citrus-y hoppiness. Mouthfeel was fairly light and clean. Sort of reminded me of 2 Hearted, but with significantly more maltiness. Quite good. I had this on tap at Piece, and would definitely recommend it.

Draft at the brewpub. The chalk board said 4.5% ABV. Poured a clear dark brown-orange color. Amber, really. The head was thick, fluffy, and off white with good retention and lacing. The arom was of citrus, caramel, and vanilla. Medium bodied with hefty hop bitterness of about 7-8 out of 10. I tasted toasted bread, dark toffee, citrus fruit, and pine resin. Delicious.

This seems a little different than earlier entries (7th Anniversary). On tap @ Piece. Pours a brown/dark red with an off white head. Nice aroma of citrus, caramel, and some grapefruit. Good flavor, with some very nice lingering bitterness. This beer packed some serious flavor for a beer that was only 4.5%. Very enjoyable, wish it was on the rotation more.

I really liked this, and it was easy drinking enough that I expect alot of non beer fans to as well. It is darker than I would have guessed, and very caramely for a pale ale. All works though, very easy to chill out with.
