Notes/Commercial Description:
This ale is brewed with the finest quality pale, caramel, and lightly roasted malts. This complex combination of malts, contribute to the deep red color and malty flavor. This is balanced with the flavor, bitterness and aromas of three varieties of hops. The IBU’s are around 35. Top fermenting ale yeast is added to create this well rounded beer.

APPEARANCE: The color is deep copper and the head fluffs up very quickly. The foam is very lively, it looks like it is churning as some very large bubbles pop and smaller ones rush I to fill the voids they create. The beer itself is also very lively with bubbles all over the edges of the glass. Despite all the churning and bubble popping in the head, it still has good retention.

SMELL: Not much there on the nose, but maybe a faint, grassy smell.

TASTE: This beer is bad. I don’t mean that this is a terrible brewer, but this particular beer is bad. It has been infected somehow and all I can taste is a big metallic flavor followed by an intense vinegar-like tart/sour taste.

MOUTHFEEL: Puckering.

OVERALL: Sadly, I cannot drink the rest of this. I did buy a few more bottles of Peace Tree when in Nebraska last week, however, so I’ll give them another shot.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

The beer is a hazy copper/amber tea color. A cream colored head recedes quickly to cirrus clouds with minimal lacing.

The beer smells wonderfully of melted caramel, malts, and faint toffee.

The beer tastes really malty and sweet up front, much in the vein of a good amber: lots of sweet caramel malts. There's a bit of a tea-leaf tang in here as well.

Mouthfeel is clean and a tad watery. A dry finish.

Overall, this beer is all over the place. But what it is is a really easy-drinker, with great caramel notes. And that is a good thing. I love the stubby bottle, too.

12oz bottle into nonic

a: reddish copper, moderate carbonation, medium density foam with light sandy color

S: a bit fruity with a bit of a biscuity, lightly toasted malt nose,

T: a bit of a medicinal flavor turning into burn cocoa and biscuit malt, bitter tannic finish

M: moderate body, carbonation bite, quite dry

O: meh, it's a cute bottle but the odd first flavor and unremarkable nose makes it a one and done for me
