Bacony roasty aroma. Black, tan head. Light palate, almost watery. Schwarzy taste, chocolatey finish. Pretty decent, and good for something with coffee in.

Back Forty Naked Pig Pale Ale
Bottle best before 9-07-17. Purchased from Double Shoppe. This is light copper in color with good head formation. Aroma is a little cardboardy with biscuits and grapefruit. The bitterness is in the middle of pale ales, maybe slightly on the lower side. Citrusy and grassy hop bite is on the palate with each sip. Light mouthfeel with a pretty crisp finish. Cereal flavors comprise the malt body without any strong specialty malt influenece. A lingering grassy, papery hoppiness sticks around.

Sweet fruity malts in the aroma, spicy and cakey. Pale and cloudy. Sweet malty body, full and smooth and a bit slimy. Sweet malty taste. Harsh bitterness in the finish. Roughish pale ale.

66cl Bottle at RBESG 17 Grand Tasting. Black colour, beige head. Aroma of tar, fudge, light sour roast, hint of coffee. Flavour is quite light, roast, something burnt, some chocolate. Light bodied. Misses oomph and body. Or coffee to be a coffee stout.

Sweet with a light burn from the alchol. Actually a nice spice beer. Not overly spiced but still obvious. Nice lasting head. Lots of alchol and probably heat but you don’t notice with the spice.

Back Forty Truck Stop Honey Brown Ale
Truck Stop Honey has a medium, off-white head, a hazy, copper-brown appearance, with powdery sediment, throughout, and a bit of glass lacing. Aroma is faint, but some honey-topped, brown bread crust is detectable. Taste is of brown bread crust, honey, subdued bitterness, and maple syrup. Mouthfeel is medium and somewhat slick, and Truck Stop Honey finishes mostly crisp. RJT

Back Forty Naked Pig Pale Ale
Naked Pig has a thick, spongy, slightly off-white head, a mostly clear, orange appearance, with a bit of glass lacing globs. Aroma is faint, but white bread and citrus can be detected, with a strong inhalation. Taste is of mellow bitterness, citrus (tangerine?), white bread, white bread crust, and mild caramel. Mouthfeel is high medium, and Naked Pig finishes medium dry. Similar to Audible Ale, in flavor, but with a more robust alcohol aspect. RJT

Not an inspiring beer. Not a lot of clear peach character and not particularly great as an American wheat either.

Back Forty Mandarin Chief
Pours dark chocolate brown that lets in a little daylight at the bottom. Thick head is tan and fairly persistent. Aroma offers roast malt, orange and piney hop tones. Flavor presents smoky, roast malt, zesty orange, bitter piney hops, and a touch of semi-sweet chocolate for a distinctive black IPA. How can you resist such an homage to our Fearless Leader? But seriously, folks. Mouthfeel features firm body, lively fizz, and an orange finish that has roast malt and charred hops underpinnings. Ale to the Chief - because he makes me wanna drink. More.

Pours a deep orange golden with an off white head. Sweet pine and citrus nose. Flavors are more tropical. Even some banana. More dryness and bitterness than the nose would suggest.

Back Forty Paw Paw's Peach Wheat
Can. Pours a rather wild looking pale straw yellow body with a very large fizzy white head. Takes a while for the head to die down, but it does eventually. The nose is pretty interesting, it smells rather dry, while I was expecting something very candy sweet. Light natural peach with a light pale malt and wheat base. The flavor is a little lacking, it’s rather light and thin. Some light peach, and some dry wheat and bready maltiness. The body and mouthfeel are quite thin and very fizzy. Perhaps a bit overly fizzy, I really need to swirl this around to off-gas some of this CO2. Meh, not a winner for me.
