Bottled (BB 10/2008)
Clear ruby read color, small off-white head. Nutty toffeish and oaky aroma. Slightly nutty hoppy with woody toffeish flavors. Reminds me about some Fullers. Nutty hoppy aftertaste, hops live in the mouth quite long. Nicely balanced session beer.

Bottle. Clear red color, mild red and orange hu overall. Hoppy, husky nose of C-note hops, some cherries and some good sticky malts (actually reminds me of the Hog Heaven aroma). Woody, husky flavor, with some charred cedar and nutty flavors. Pretty solid, surprisingly hoppy.

A Mes rate:
Sugary aroma. Deep tan body with no head. Ok looks wise. Sweet alcoholic flavour that is soapy and sticky. Crap palate. Just too thin. Not that great.
