Bottle from Bert’s Crystal clear deep golden with a hint of red and a tightly bubbled off white head that dissipates slowly. Rich caramel malt and earthy spicy citrus hops to counter. Tasty beer that reminds me of the craft beer from the 90’s.

chinchill (4749) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 24, 2014
12 oz. bottle with best by date of 30 Nov. 2011 (from 9/2011 notes). A- Pours a lovely red brown with about 1 finger of short-lived off-white head. Leaves some nice lacing that quickly slides down the sides of my wet glass. S- Aroma has a roasted malt scent that is would be pleasant, but there are too many alcohol esters (I know: with only 4.8% ABV!) given the weak strength of the other components. The taste is much better. As expected, it primarily features a medium roasted malt flavor, but there are some spicy hops in the mix. The dynamics are unusual, however, with the hops becoming a little less pronounced in the finish which is where the toasted malt flavor comes through most clearly. In any case, a fine finish nicely shaped by both the Apollo hops and the malts. M - medium bodied beer, although off on the thin side a bit, with good carbonation; a mild bite of carbonation/hops on the tongue. Rather dry finish. O - This is a fine red ale: Even though it is weak in aroma, it has excellent flavor, is moderately refreshing, and is a pleasure to drink.
