Pineapple Side-Down is a medium bodied brownish ale that employs real pineapple, brown sugar, caramel and milk sugar. The brew has a semi-sweet nose with hints of caramel and fruit. A large malt bill of numerous grain varieties complement the sweetness of the specialty ingredients. Flavors of tart pineapple lead into a candied caramelized finish, which provides a lasting warming quality.

ROGUE (2200) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - OCT 15, 2012
On tap Birch & Barley Wash. DC. Pours a deep amber brown color with a thin off white head and a bit of lacing. The nose is brown sugar and caramelized malts and sweetened fruit. Lots of sweetness. Sweetness really carries over into the taste as well with caramelized pineapple and a bit of sweet-bready type malt. Quite sweet and dessert-like with a big presence of brown sugar. Medium body and slightly creamy, low carbonation.

radagast83 (7392) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Draft. Poured a slightly light amber color, small white head. Aroma was sweet fruits, but not a lot of pineapple - very disappointed with that aroma. Flavor was, meh. Nothing to call home about unfortunately - I’d have to say that this beer wasn’t nearly as good as I had hoped. Maybe it just didn’t survive the trip from Michigan.

Sample from 65 cl. bottle. Deep amber colour with a tanned head. Aroma is sweet and fruity, and unfortunately some sour notes. Infected bottle? Sweet and fruity taste. Medium body with a short, sweet finish with a fruity and slightly sour note. Someone stole the pineapples.
