Mayday Old Salem Kettle Sour Batch #1
Draft sample at Pour Vous in Hendersonville. Really a nice, mellow sour. Light citrus sourness with a tart punch but it mellows out before getting acidic. Nice and easy drinking and perfect for someone new to sours or just when you don’t feel like an overpowering sour. Pleasant.

Take your grain of salt, this is not my style. Hop saves the palate, but otherwise comes off like a typical blonde. A little zest, some sweetness, finish is rough.

Taste comprises bitter hops, spice, pine needle, earthy, light cocoa. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Adequate CDA but not one to revisit for me.

Tasted on 1/17/15 on tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy dark brown with a thick tan head that leaves average sticky lace. The nose is molasses, coffee, and pine resin hops, some dark bread. The flavor is a touch of molasses bread up front, moving to the nice resin and coffee bitterness. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long bitter resin and roasted coffee finish.

Not too sweet, and quite unlike any "reds" I’ve tasted before. The flavor is just huge and leaves you with that buttery finish on the back end. The chinook hops have got me hooked now...

Smoothest IBA I have ever had the pleasure of tasting! Coffee notes aren’t too heavy, floral aroma is perfectly blended with the roasty malts and extra hop addition!

On tap at Flying Saucer Nashville, June 2014. Dark brown pour, almost black, nice tan head, good lacing. Whoaaaa, way too much floral or orange aspect or something... smells like very fragrant cheap hotel soap, no joke. Mrs. Owl wouldn’t even drink it. It’s in the flavor as well, way too strong. Otherwise hints at some roast and chocolate. Gross.

Pours an amber color with a red hue. Taste is a bit spicy with a good amount of malt. A small amount of bitterness after the swallow, with a spiced malt left on the palate. Not my favorite beer but glad I tried it while in Nashville Tenn.
