COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Falling from the sky like bombs of flavour come the Reindeer Droppings! Each one is sweet like California raisins, but bitter and pungent like a freshly peeled grapefruit, lip-smackingly tasty... then "pow!" it’s gone. How did that happen?

Reindeer Droppings has a thick, off-white head, a clear, bubbly, amber appearance, and narrow lacing left behind. The aroma is of sharp, yeasty, barnyard whiffs, with some sourdough bread and dried fruits. Taste is of the same elements, with zesty, horseblanket yeast, spiced holiday white bread, and mellow hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is low medium, and Reindeer Droppings finishes on the dry side. RJT

Bottled. Bought at a beer specialty store here in Bratislava. One word: great! definitely a great English amber ale. Very bitter, hoppy and a tone of dark chocolate in the finish, which is the most dominant part, where all the characteristics of this ale are unleashed. The aroma is quite low, does not promise anything, there is some malt and the raisins, but that is all. The color however is beautiful! Copper brown and clear. The hoppy aftertaste last quite long on the mouth. Overall an excellent brew in my opinion in its price and quality category.

Bottle. Pours with rich head, most disappears quickly, but still it is persistent. Colour is clear golden-amber. Strong aroma of hops, also notable floral notes, a little earthy. Wonderfully bitter, with a minor sourness. Finish is delicately bitter with all aroma notes slowly disappearing, and urging you to next swig.

Shared wit h Strykzone via Facebook Chat. Poured from the 500 ml bottle, a dark ice tea color wit ha good foamy light tan head.. and really good lacing rings. Nose is caramel malts and grassy hops Medium in body with a smooth mouthfeel. Lots of flavors including ripe dark fruit and raisins. Good bitterness which carries over into the finish. Seems like an English bitter to me, but it is what it is and what it is good.

Hazy orange with a white slightly orangish head. Aroma is citrus (grapefruit) and raisins. Very robust aroma. Taste is citrus hops. Tastes like an IPA due to the citrus with a pale ale aftertast.
