On tap at the brewpub

A - Straw yellow with a small layer of white head.

S - Very in-your-face chamomile nose with not much else coming through at all.

T - Chamomimle dominates, especially in the first few sips but tones down a little bit after a while. Some bready malts become evident along with a very mild hop bitterness.

M - Light body with a nice chew. Moderate carbonation.

Serving type: bottle

Enjoyed as a limited edition on tap, cracked by Nate and Jeremy as a present to the BA group who attended the Western Michigan BA gathering at Founders on Jan.29th.

Pours out to a slightly hazy pale straw golden, forming a modest white head with good retention and mild lacing. Carbonation is moderate to mild. The aroma is like sticking your head into a bag of Chamomile at the Celestial Seasoning factory. I am not a lover of Chamomile tisanes, but this is just awesome in a beer. Mouthfeel is spicy, zesty and tart with a light body and chamomile astringency in the finish. The taste is all about the chamomile. It's potent and full, followed by a delicate pale malt body which adds a little sweetness and balanced by a mild floral bitterness. The finish is astringent with chamomile and the belches are ripe and pungent. Cleanly fermented, but with all this chamomile in it, I don't think I'd notice any faults:)

Inspired by John Maiers Chamomellow Ale (which I had as Test Batch #1 at the Portland Ale House), but infinitely more potent. Still, this is good stuff and one glass is plenty for quite a while.
