Thanks to Thain709 aka Tristan for bringing this one to Ffej of July IX

A - Pours amber orange with a nice pillow of two finger tall white head leaving spotty lacing down the glass.

S - Lots of sweet caramel malt aromas up front, dominating all other flavors. You get some hints of muted grassy hops and some biscuity yeast but this one is mostly just malt.

T - Starts off with a huge blast of sugary sweet caramel malt that permeate all corners of this beer. As the sweetness begins to wane you can detect a bit of muted grassy hops and some biscuity yeast but just like the nose, this one is all about the sweet malt at this point. The finish is fairly sweet, lingering for some time.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Sticky sweet feel with plenty of it lingering through the finish.

O - I am glad I got to try this one but I think it was a bit past its prime. I could see what they were going for here and I think I would have enjoyed it had I had it from the source.

On tap at Goose Island Clybourn. Served in a sampler glass. Pours a nice copper color with a thin white head and a bit of lacing. The nose carries a bit of citrus peel and light amber caramel malt. Flavor is somewhat bitter with some pine and citrus. Medium body. Good carbonation and fairly bitter. Pretty good.

Sampled from the tap at the Clyborn location. Pours a clear amber with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a earthy pine note with a hint of light citrus and backing sweet grains. Flavor has a good amount of pine with light fruit and sweet grains.

draft, Pours auburn white head, Nose real fruity, mint, white grape. Flavors is toasted malts, bubblegum, juicy fruit, tea, and mint. Didnt do well on cask however, seemed in a younger awkward stage bit phenolic, just seem less pronounce notes, refreshing longer minty finish while the draft had more hop flavor and bitterness, good stuff really

On cask at GI Wrigley pub. Aroma: Wonderful fruity hop profile (pineaples and mango) with caramel malts and maple. Appearance: Dark copper, completely clear, lasting white head for a cask. Taste: Citrus hops and caramel malts, a nice balance between bitter, sweet and tart. Palate: I usually dont like palate for cask but this is very good, not entirely flat, full without being heavy. Overall: Very good.
