on tap @ the Ale Asylum

Pours a very slightly hazed amber color, with a bit of brown in the middle, some copper highlights on the edges. A nice white head 1-1.5 cm sits on top, which drops down to a dense little puck on top, leaving pretty good lacing. The smell is of toasty malts, a bit of caramel and toffee, some smells of lightly grassy hops, and I get some tart fruits, like cherries, oranges, and underripe magoes. The taste starts out with a little citrus peel bitterness, and it quickly turns into a dry, toasty breadiness, like crackers. Then it moves into a grassy, almost resinous taste as it goes down. I kind of expected more sweetness, but there's just enough to carry the flavor without the grassy taste getting out of hand. I like it. The hops contribute to the body, but it just doesn't quite do enough to help to forget about the slight watery feel to this. The carbonation is good though, zippy. And it actually warms me a little and kind of fills me up. The drinkability is good. You wouldn't think it was a 6.8%-er. Very pleasant and enjoyable at points, but it didn't quite blow me away. I would recommend it if you came in here - this or one of the belgians (which I only got a taste of, but it seemed enjoyable).
