Draught at Freshcraft. Bold somewhat flat in overall taste even with imperial flavor there. Lemon. Yeasty. Ok. Ernest (7658) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 20, 2016
Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is hazy medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly to moderately yeasty (basement), with notes of alcohol, gum, sugar, plastic, pepper, pear syrup.
Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium to full body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic.
Fairly average for a boozy BSA...while very alcohol-focused, there are still other things that manage to make it past the vapors (a few unpleasant things but some aspects are nice). Starts very sweet but it manages to dry things out quite a bit in the finish, enough to be drinkable (if a little short of enjoyable). The flabby, burning mouthfeel doesn’t help things, though. Overall a bit sloppy and generic, but acceptable. Best thing I’ve had from this brewery to date, so there’s hope yet... ajnepple (6428) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2017
