brokensail (16232) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 2, 2012
3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer is a murky orange color with almost no head. Aroma is full of cork. Quite a bit of butterscotch to it as well. There’s a mild fruitiness, particularly citrus rind. A hint of tartness along with some grass. The flavor is a bit on the sweet side, mostly butterscotch and bread with a little sweet fruit. Mildly funky with some grass and straw, still a fair amount of cork, too. Lots of orange flavor to it, too.

750ml bottle at Fantome-a-thon 2012.
Pours hazy orange. The flavor is full of citrus and unfortunately some cork as well. A bit oxidized but the lemon peel and orange juice forces its way through the caramel. It also has a strange cream flavor. Not bad over all.
