At the Mohawk House in Sparta, NJ. Into a tulip, it poured cloudy amber, with red highlights when held up to the light, and two fingers of beige head; great retention and lacing. Very hoppy nose; dry, bitter, grassy/herbal, orange peel, and caramel apple. The taste began on a very herbal bitter note, then evolved to more caramel apple maltiness, and then finished on a dry peel note. Very little hint of the alcohol content. Smooth, creamy (with great head retention), and medium thickness, yet I found it easy to drink. Fantastic 13th anniversary tribute to a classic beer.
Serving type: on-tap

Enjoy by January 13.
Pours a slightly hazy amber with a frothy khaki head that lingers.
Pine, resin, and grapefruit are supported by sweet burnt sugar and toasted bread in the aroma. Pine dominates. Dark fruit notes of prunes and fig add intrigue.
Flavor begins with burnt breadcrust and deeply caramelized sugar, with underlying grapefruit pith, herbal tea, and pine, finishing fairly dry and bitter. Oak and resin linger in the aftertaste.
Body is a little full, with low carbonation and moderate alcohol warmth.
Interesting combination of flavors, thought the burnt character dominates and is slightly unpleasant.
