Bottle… October ’09 O-Town Throwdown... Clear yellow ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma presents black tea, caramel, resin and spicy rye. Full-bodied with medium carbonation. The flavor tilts toward the bitter side of balance, but provides nice malty, grainy essences of caramel and rye. Bittersweet, dry finish.

Bottle courtesy of BeerBelcher and opened at my refrigerator reduction tasting on 8/15/09. Pours a clear amber with a medium off-white head. Bready malt makes up most of the nose, but there are some citrusy and earthy hops as well. Flavor is a bit more balanced, with the citrusy hops coming through first before the bread hits you. Balanced and very good. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 28, 2009

Pours with a small white head over a golden body. Aroma of orange, grass, caramel and a touch of rye. Taste is orange and rye spicy/breadiness. Light bubbles.
