From a bottle. Pours almost clear light copper with a fizzy off white head. Tastes strong like booze with a hint of dryness, but also very smooth. Earthy, light ash, tobacco, raisin. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like light booze, dry raisins, dough, and earth.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from 12oz bottle. Very antique offering from Yards. The opening brought me back to the 1700s with hints of hibiscus and overtones of wheat grass. Complete through the finish with a hefty kiss of hops.

This is a great beer. Light aroma and color, not hoppy at all, with great body and a great balance of sweet and bitter. I loved it.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Literally my favorite Yards Brew. Often had this one at the Tasting Room on Delaware Avenue. Malt forward, with a slight rye bite, which the honey from the bright tanks mellows so nicely. At 8%, the booze is VERY well hidden. Great beer for just about anytime.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a bright red and orange with lots of bubbles pulling upward. Aroma is wort-ish and bready. Tastes a bit green and undercooked. Because it’s a historical beer. I can’t claim with certainty that it is under done. Some baking bread notes but otherwise not tasting good to me.
