Review and Tasting


Sampled on 02/09/2016

Appearance:

(sample bottle BBE Jun/17) Hazy, deep coppery amber with retentive thick off-white head and light but sticky lacing.

Aroma:

Malty caramel, currant rich fruit cake, candied citrus peel and fragrant piney hops.

Taste:

Medium-bodied, dry and fairly bitter. Malty caramel and citrus.

Aftertaste:

Lingering bitter hop finish.

Overall:

Pronounced pine bitterness (perhaps a tad overly so) with malty caramel and citrus.
