Brewed with a mild meld of citrus hops and combined with nice & subtle malt sweetness. This ale is a good ’in between’ beer of hoppy and yet sweet flavor.

Starting the evening off with a pint of the house special I was skeptical at first that Willoughby could crank out a solid session beer. After all the house wheat and fruit beers have been a mess and are best avoided unless you have to collect every single tap in a single sitting. This turned out to be an ideal beer for light drinking; not heavy it still had enough flavor to wake up the palate.

Aroma / Appearance - The reddish brown body was dark in contrast to the snow being hit by the setting sun. Bronze highlights tinged the edge like malt balls. Chocolate malt, brownies fresh from the oven, and peanut butter pie give this a dessert feel without the heavy calories.

Flavor / Palate - Malty chocolate begins the party followed by light oakiness and then cocoa nibs. It then crawls down the throat leaving only the faintest of aftertastes. The finish makes this ideal for those times when you don’t want a high gravity malt or hop bomb but do want to know you aren’t drinking hoppy water. At $2.00 this was a nice deal and on par with what you’d find in a bottle for the same price.
