12 oz. brown bottle with 8 28081642 noted on UPC label. I've had this beer 12-pack after 12-pack over the years. This is my first review of it.
Appearance: the body is a hazy copper color with a yellowish, soapy, yet creamy head with bubbles of differing sizes. As the bubbles explode, the head becomes craggy and lacing holds together a web of delicate foam. Carbonation is extremely active as bubbles dance off the glass bottom.
Smell: the scents have somewhat subsided since this beer's suggested date of enjoyment, but piney hops seem to hold on while a slightly sweet caramel maltiness brings around a completeness.
Taste: the piney hops are still the predominant factor, while subdued, still have qiute a bite. The caramel malts, while sweet, are definitely here to show balance, though slightly still to the bitter end.
Mouthfeel: as with most SN beers, the mouthfeel is delightful with adequate carbonation and a more than medium texture. The slight astringency is showing that these bitter hops never die.
Drinkability: this is always a wonderful beer to drink. Even many moons after the month of "Celebration", this one's a keeper.
This review is from notes several months old.
