Just purchased a half barrel from the brewery this fine evening for my kegarator. This stuff is dangerously drinkable - just finished my first pint and heading back for number 2 in quick order. Very solid brown ale in my opinion. The alcohol is not terribly noticeable and I'm suspecting that it will sneak up on me in quick order if i'm not careful. Although I intended to pick up a half barrel of daisy cutter, i don't regret this for a second. Very tasty and worth the drive from the south suburbs up to half acre for a fresh keg (dated 11/13/2010) of Over Ale. Just in time for Thanksgiving - and believe me when I say I'm thankful.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a haze red/brown into an imperial pint glass with a huge, frothy head that very quickly dissipates into a thin film. Smells of predominantly lemon instantly hit me; upon closer inspection there's some biscuity malt character as well.
The bready malts are up front in the taste, along with flowery and lemon bitterness, a light british yeast flavor, with a crisp (almost coppery) finish. It's lightly carbonated and very smooth but quite thick.
If I were to sum this beer up, I would probably call it an imperial ESB. It's extremely well balanced and just overall very enjoyable, without being overly complex.
