On tap in a pint glass at Woodlands Tavern on 10/3/11

Background: I asked the bartender to pour a pint of his finest Yuengling Lager with a nice head on it and, hot dang, he obliged. I headed out to the patio with a bitchn' new black trench coat and set up shop at a table for two about fifteen feet from the patio fire's glow. Jackyl's "Down On Me" came on the radio. Buggy passed up ticking MoaS to work. I'm ok with that.

A) I can't fault the clarity with this one - caramel colored and as clear as they come. However, that nicely poured one finger head was nearly gone by the time I got outside; an island skim and ring of retention remain. No lace.

S) The aroma is slick and kind of grainy. Hops seem in very low dosage here. Metallic notes and adjuncts are in force. It doesn't smell bad, but it's definitely lackluster.

T) It tastes similar, but swap out metallic for a a grassy notion. Dirty grass and hay. Not overly hoppy with bitterness being low (as expected) but it does have a kick to it and the hops do cover up some of the adjunct and grain flavors. Finishes with a surprising amount of residuals - a decent grassy flavor lingers long, which suits me just fine.

M) Medium-light body. Slick upfront, surrendering to a slight graininess underneath. Carbonation isn't lacking, pushing the modest hop flavors to the fore. The finish turns a bit metallic as it warms.

D) Nostalgic notes of North Woodbury, fruit flies, 3' x 3' shower stalls with cold water, 1695 N 4th, Rhoda Ave and Belligerent Bills, an unsolicited back rub by an old chick that was upset that I wouldn't smile, Ingles, and the days before heroin ate my friends.

Serving type: on-tap
