COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Here’s Lookin’ Atcha’!"

Laying there, staring up at the ceiling, head pounding, last night was a dim recollection. How did he get home? Was he alone? Looking to the left and right, the answer was yes, maybe. His head was full of ’rag water, bitters, and the blue ruin’.His teeth felt like he’d been chewing aluminum and his breath smelled like a burning tractor tire. There was a wrenching knot somewhere between his liver and East St. Louis and he couldn’t be sure whether or not he’d wet himself. A yellow sine wave rang in his ears so loud nit made his teeth itch and he was sure that if he touched his skin anywhere it would induce a rhythmic retching jag. Even in the face of all that, he found himself smiling at the realization that today represented the fresh breast of a new year- an undiscovered country- and also there was still one warm, half-full, flat redolent Hairy Eyeball on the nightstand. Yes-there is a God.

12 fl oz bottle. Pours deep amber/golden and with a lacing off-white head. Aroma is fruity, roasted malt and a dark caramel note.

Ungstrup (38384) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2006
An amber beer with a slight haze and a light brown head. The aroma is primarily of caramel, but also with ligth notes of hops and alcohol. The flavor is sweet malty with lots of caramel and alcohol. The alcohol burn in the mouth - first on the tongue, and then in the throat. A nice Winter Warmer ;-)

Dark ruby with rich citrus aroma. Richly malty, with some crystal malt character and clean mouthfeel. Very buitter finish.

Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2006
(Bottle 65 cl) Pours a reddish brown mahogany with a beige coloured head. Roasted, malty aroma. Accents of roasted malt and caramel. Dry with some lightly port-like notes. Dry finish. Lagunitas rarely offers bad beers, but even more rarely they offer something outstanding. 270106

3.7
Leighton (22304) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2010
Tap at Sunswick. Pours a dark, cloudy brown with a substantial beige head. Aroma is heavy with raisin, fig, and caramel, with some light funkiness. Augurs a rather sweet experience. Flavor is super-sweet. A mix of turbinado and brown sugar, with more raisin. Hop presence asserts itself in the finish. Big body, thick and syrupy, good carbonation. The intensity of the sweetness sets this beer apart from the pack - for better or worse. I liked it.
