Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color ale with a medium small foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of tart notes with light cereal notes also perceptible. Taste is also dominated by quite a bit of tart notes with some light spicy rye notes that are also perceptible. Body is quite full with medium carbonation. Not bad but a lot more sour then expected which makes it hard to distinguish some of the rye malt.

#BOTG 134.

Muled from San Antonio for me by my buddy Will (Canadianghetto). Thanks Will! Poured from 22oz bomber into my Brooklyn tulip. Pours a pretty cloudy golden orange color. Not much head, no real retention to speak of. Decent appearance. Smell- juicy orange peel, some candied sugar, clove, banana. Clove and fruit are dominant. Taste- a lot drier than I expected, but a nice creamy mouthfeel. I get big clove, vanilla, dreamcicle (all I could really think of to describe the play between the creaminess and the orange/fruit play. What is not here that I was expecting was a big sweet backbone. But, it actually lends itself to making this easier to drink- I will have no problem taking this down. I also get some cinnamon on the end, back of the throat. Overall, this is an enjoyable beer, I am always happy to enjoy Freetail brews.
