Appearance: In the bottle it was clear and whiskey color. Once I poured it into the glass it wasn’t clear at all. It appeared to be a slightly orangey copper color.
Aroma: it had a bright citrus hop smell.
Taste: It is a full flavored beer. I think that hops have a very distinct flavor to them but it isn’t necessarily what you would think hops would taste like if you had only smelled them before. This beer tastes like how you would expect hops to taste. It’s not overly carbonated and you can slightly taste the warmth of the alcohol.
Mouth feel: While this beer is neither heavy nor light in your mouth there is a full feel to it.
Overall: This beer is decent but not necessarily one I would go out of my way to drink again.
I’m a girl that likes beer and likes learning about beer. This blog is being written to document my journey through the world of beer. My husband will undoubtedly be along for much of the ride since he is a beer enthusiast as well. I will be trying new beers, at least one a week, and writing my thoughts about them here. I will also review the various beer establishments that I go to along the way. While a good portion of the places we go will be in New England, as we are from Maine, we are always up for an adventure. Although beer is good on its own, I certainly enjoy it with food. Food and beer complement each other very nicely and pairing one with the other often makes an experience greater than the sum of its parts. In addition to pairing beer with food at pubs and restaurants, I also enjoy playing with the combination in my own kitchen. I will be sure to share any recipes I come across.And last but not least, what kind of beer geek would I be if I didn’t partake in home brewing?
