Notes/Commercial Description:
19th Anniversary Ale isn’t just a wood-aged ale. It’s a compass – a reminder of where we’ve been and where we’re going. Brewed with pure birch syrup and aged on birch wood, this beer embraces reverential tradition and revolutionary innovation.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A-dark dusky orange with just a thin white head. Not much action to it.

S-very bold scent of citrusy honeycomb and syrups. Smells quite boozey

T-comes in with a flavor of honey combs, like the cereal, and a heavy syrup flavor. Disappointingly I get no birch. Some citrus to it. Matching after-taste.

M-sticky and heavy. Low carbonation.

O-well there's an absence of birch, which is basically the only reason I decided to drop $14 on this bomber. So yea it was a big let down. Other than that, it was a mildly okay strong ale. Somewhat drinkable. Will not buy again.
