look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Presentation: 22 oz. bomber with no freshness date.
Appearance: Richly golden in colour with a thick pasty white lace that retains very well.
Smell: Some fruitiness, malt sweetness and a touch of smoked tangy pepper.
Taste: Very smooth with a mild crispness, rich and medium bodied. A thin layer of malt is first then a mild smoke kicks in as well as a mellow tangy hot pepper that has a faint touch of heat to it, perhaps some of the tangy flavour is from the cascade hops. Soon after is an underlying malt (bready) and a bit of hop flavour ... yet the more you drink the more you feel the heat, though it does not get hot or over bearing. Very clean in the finish with a fading heat.
Notes: Seriously one of the best spiced/herbal ales we have ever had ... some complex yet very well balanced and oh so drinkable all at the same time. A generous addition of smoked chipotle peppers give this brew the heat and smoke.
Serving type: bottle
