Monkey head is a warming, malty amber ale with slight hop bite and clean finish. Served cold in liter bottles. At 8.0% A.A.B.V. itís great for sharing with your friends.

A - Pours a slightly hazy amber-red color with a finger of frothy off-white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some good lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of sweet toasted caramel malts with some citrus hops and a bit of bread. T - Starts off with some sweet caramel malts, and some light citrus hops and bready malts. Through the middle, some more bready malts come through with more hop flavor and bitterness. The finish is a mix of citrus hops, sweet bready malts, and a bit of bitterness and yeast. M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and lightly bitter finish. D - Very drinkable. Nicely balanced but could have used a bit more of a kick.

1L Bottle... Poured burnt orange/copper with a thin head. Mild bitterness and hop spice. Lots of malt sweetness here. Hints of cocoa, toffee, pasty-like sweetness and a bit of alcohol and bitterness towards the finish.

Really enjoyed this beer last Thursday. Strong hop, pine and citrus notes with subtle grassy and grain flavors.

Didnít have to wait till Thursday, on tap at Beer Revolution. Pours with a very light hazed orange body with a thick, just off-white head. Aroma is very strongly grainy, nutty and bready. Cereal aromas. A bit grassy. Straw, hay and field like. Brown sugar. Flavors are oddly pungent, brown sugar, nutty, grainy. Mostly malt. Some alcohol, medium to light bubbles. Some minerallity. Warming. Assertive malt character that is hard to place.

Nice reddish golden with a creamy white head. Sweet malt caramel aroma and taste with a smooth palate and champagne carbonation. Alcohol well hidden good caramel malty taste. Dry bitter finish Quite good.

1L bottle as promised. Nice local tradition in the making and a great deal. Nose is red with sweet malts and sugar. Color is a flat dark red with no head. Flavor is like Decadence 06 and water. Hoppiness is indeed slight but so is the malt and the alcohol. Not sure why this is an ASA, but I guess 8% is kind of a lot. Forgettable, but again, when the bar is full of dark glass 1L bottles itís easy to get caught up. I would probably do it again.

Pours medium fizzy golden copper from the Liter sling top. Nose is sweet and slightly fruity. Mostly just malt sweetness. The flavor is quite the same with not much going on. I guess they only serve this on Thursday nights and we got the last one. Great use of marketing, cause the place was packed and everyone was talking about Monkey Head!
