Falling from the sky like bombs of flavour come the Reindeer Droppings! Each one is sweet like California raisins, but bitter and pungent like a freshly peeled grapefruit, lip-smackingly tasty... then "pow!" it’s gone. How did that happen?

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Slightly hazy gold to amber pour with a 2 finger, creamy to soapy white head. Aroma is cereal, grass, English yeast fruity esters, a little toffee and light citrus flesh. Flavor is dusty oxidized malt, cereal, toffee and apple skins up front, then grass, grapefruit and light medicinal notes to the finish. Light body, fairly dry and a little chalky throughout with a medium, sharp, blanketing carbonation and a surprising hop acid bite on the back end. Pretty good overall, it has some fairly obvious flaws, but nothing too in your face and enough going for it to deserve a decent score.
