2014 Beer Camp Across America Release.

For beer folks, Chico, CA, and New Glarus, WI, are must-see capitals on the U.S. brewing map, but getting between the two is no simple feat. There and Back is named for the planes, trains, and zeal needed to connect them. This classic English-style Bitter is a complex yet easy-drinking mix of toasty malt and a fruity, herbal hop flavor.

New Glarus is fiercely loyal to its home state, growing to one of the largest breweries in the U.S. without selling a single drop outside of the borders of Wisconsin. With those local tastes in mind, New Glarus has perfected traditional German styles and invented masterful versions of complex and intense fruit beers featuring Wisconsin-grown ingredients.

Bottle from Beer Camp 12 pack at Total Wine in Boca Raton. Home snifter. Pours a dark golden orange with a small ringed head and not much haze. Aroma is a combination of nutty, caramel malts and a fruity hop profile. The taste is caramel and nutty malt, with a fruity and pine hop profile. The finish has the slight malty bitterness that makes that ESB taste. Medium texture, slight creamy on the palette.

Pours muddy amber with a beige head. Aroma of caramel, cereal, biscuit, and light hops. Easy to drink but I like my bitters with a little more hop bite.

tap - This brew has a rich caramel aroma with notes of citrus. It tastes of sweet caramel malt and moderately bitter hops with a subtle citrus character. It’s medium bodied, soft on the palate, and easy drinking. Very good.

35,5 cl bottle @ tiong, packaged 22.05.2014
Aroma has gooseberry bush and caramel malt. Also cereal. Flavour has fruity hops, cereal, gooseberry bush and some grapefruit. Also some sweet caramel malt. Could be better fresh. This is over seven months old but still the hops are way more strong than in bitters usually.
