Much thanks to Chonyr for this one.
Poured a nice and deep tawny amber colour with a generous light tan coloured head, which faded to interesting lacings. As i enjoyed the aroma of this brew the tipping of the glass swirled the lacings into an interesting crescent shape which turned into an almost s shaped double crescent with further tips up to my nose.
Sweet estery bready smells greated my nose with a hint of caramel. Hops added a a hint of pine to the yeasty and malty aromas.
Fruity and floral honeyed toast with hints of toffee and finishes with a pleasant bitter piney flavour. A wonderful creation from a bastardization of styles, suppose it would take a rogue to make a beer like this.
A very satisfying beer, enough taste and substance to be a very satisfying and drinkable brew. The maltiness is wonderfully balanced by the hops which seem to contribute a crisp finish to this beer.
Very easy and pleasurable to drink. Substantial enough to be satisfied with one, if you can control yourself, because its tasty and crisp enough to easily turn this into a session brew. Gotta get me a jug of this sometime. Will come back for more.

11/09/11 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Far better on tap than from bottle. Bordering on the crisp side. Hops are well under control and there is a slight apricot in the sweetness. In a word, a classy glass...Oops, that was two words, but you get my drift.
Serving type: on-tap
