Paid under $2 for a 12 oz. bottle...
The beer is an art form, a clear amber colored base with a medium sized white head, excellent head retention and a cascade of lacing effects. The aroma is a nice mix of malt and hops.
The taste adds an extra degree of tart fruity flavor to the malt/hop mix, simply blended as one. Extremely smooth and nice on the palette and drinkable to the extent that this barelywine is an ideal session beer.
Final Thought: Packs a punch and is equally blended, there is not much more one can do to make a finer barley wine, this is the new standard in my book and Sierra Nevada is the best large-scale microbrew in this country... Chico, CA has some magic...
