KegOstertag (92) - - DEC 30, 2012
Drank in pilsner glass from 12oz bottle. Aroma- citrus and rye scents. Appearance- murky/muddy orange. Tons of head and carbonation. Head did not dissapate. Taste- rye taste and boozy flavors. Not too alcoholic but its noticeable blended with the rye and citrus. Palate- strong alcoholic mouthfeel. Overall- not bad but definetely a bit boozier than expected for a golden ale.

Köszönet érte Lore-nak! Nem mindennapi főzde palackjára esett a választásom a 700. sörpontozás alkalmával, egy Hair of the Dog levadászása régóta a bakancslistámon szerepelt már. Ennek megfelelően nemigen tudnék rossz véleményt kipréselni magamból Freddel kapcsolatban, de mint ahogy az lenni szokott, ez esetben sem kell kozmetikáznom az értékelésen. Kinézete magával ragadó, opálos és sűrű, élettel telt, narancslekvár-küllem, tojáshéj színű, pöffeszkedő krémhabbal a tetején. Süteménytésztás, marcipánmasszás, grapefruit-dzsemes, vérnarancsos, virágszirmos illatai szambát járnak, az aromás komlók színes együttese húzza a nótájukat. Haraphatóan teltek az ízjegyek, vibrálnak a trópusi gyümölcsös töltelékkel megkent piskótatésztás, marmaládés, diós színezetű, cifra élesztős, kandiscukorral megszórt elemek, melyek egyrészt belga beütésűek, mégis a vérbeli amerikai vonal megtestesítői. Sziporkázó stílusegyveleg, mely majdnem annyira IPA, mint amennyire barley wine, a mázsás súlyú karakter, a szirupos malátafolyam hömpölygése azonban valóban az utóbbi típus stílusjegyeinek irányába mutatnak. Egy ilyen főzet után már csak arra lennék kíváncsi, milyenek lehetnek a Hair of the Dog egyéb, nagynevű alkotásai.

Clear dark golden, thick offwhite head. Malty aroma, fruity with caramel and hops. Malty flavour, notes of vanilla and dried fruit. Quite fruity beneath the hoppy, slightly alcoholic bitterness. Bittersweet with a nicely rough finish.
