COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our head brewer’s second signature beer, the dark bronze colored ale starts full-bodied with rich caramel malt swimming in bountiful hop character leading to a dry finish amid hints of alcohol heat. This Pacific Northwest interpretation of an English-style strong ale combines the malty characteristics of a winter warmer with a generous hop rate.

I almost hate to put such a fantastically descriptive rating down but here goes: good, complex, malt-accented strong ale. Helpful, ain’t it?

Dark brown and clear. Strong fruit-cereal aroma, like "Trix" or "Froot Loops"... which is honestly what came to mind when I smelled this one. Big on the malts, with flavors of cherries, plums and wood, and presents itself like a "mild" barley wine. Very dry finish.

Dark Copper color. Medium head. Aroma is malty. A medium bodied strong ale. Malts are caramely, touch or orange and slightly sweet. Hops are slightly spicy and finishes rather dry, A touch of an alcohol bite at 7.5 %. Very flavorful. Well balanced. There is a touch of alcohol oiliness at 7.5%. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

On tap at the 2003 Great Alaska Beer and Barley Wine Festival. Deep orange color with foamy off-white head and a warm, hoppy nose. Very smooth out of the keg with a strong hop bitterness and maybe not strong enough on the malts. Reminded me more of a good Northwest IPA.

I had this beer in 2004 at HorseBrass Pub, Portland. Don held a special Glen Ale Release Party / Fund Raiser for the Glen Foundation. It was a Vintage 2002 keg of Sassy. Said to have been the last one in existance!!! It was an honour just to be there.

KLCC Microbrewfest ’09: Dark amber pour with a rich aroma of malty sweetness, citrus, and caramel. Flavor can be summed up by sweet hoppy goodness. Citrus and caramel with a little toffee. Quite nice.

A decent strong ale, done the way I like it. Malty, but not overdone. (I’m so exited I am the second person to rate this right behind Oakes!)

A powerful ale, the 7.5% sneaks up on you, well actually its not too sneaky, its just kind of there, you know what I mean, quit being a jerk.
