Bought a mix-12 "Beer Camp" pack of this from Payless Liquors in Fisher, IN for $14.99. Poured one of the 12 FL. OZ. bottles w/ a Dark Maroon Label and a Wooden Brew Kettle in a forest into a 16oz Pint Glass. Has 2178206:38 on the front of the bottle neck.
Aroma- Tons of mixed fruits in the aroma. Citrus and much more. Malt pops up big as well.
Appearance- Pours a .5 finger head that has average retention. Has a dark amber/copper body with almost no clarity. Leaves thick lacing behind.
Flavor- Malty, bit of caramel, and a mix up of fruits are all present in this complexed brew. Light-Medium hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel- Medium-Full Bodied, Medium Carbonation, Sweet, and finishes with tons of hop. Finally the hops come into play! Very spicy and strong.
Overall Impression- My 3rd from the "Beer Camp" Series and was above average. Not sure why the hops couldn't have came up sooner in the taste! Very enjoyable though and will be popping another one of these. Glad there are 3 of each to the pack!
