I am not familiar with the style specifics of [American Strong Ale] so i wasn't sure where to place the expectations of my palate mitt. I was tense, like a catcher waitin' for a wild pitch from a cocky young rookie freshly on the mound from the farm league.
POUR/APPEARANCE: An extremely clean and red shifted amber color of immediate intrigue.
OK, so first pitch showed some maturity with a clean strike.
HEAD: A quickly fading one finger pitch with loose lacing.
OK, so one in the dirt - count it up to junior jitters.
AROMA: Virtually non-existent bouquet - could be a cola for all I know.
Foul, in the dirt.
FLAVOR: The promise of oak maturity whistled into the mitt here - a sharp fast ball right down the middle takes both hitter and catcher by surprise. This kid's "been around" - what's his name again? Oh yes, "ARROGANT BASTARD ALE"...I think this kid will be around for a couple of seasons or so...
Welcome to the major leagues - of American Strong Ale.
