Poured a Best Before 05/05/13 12 oz bottle very very carefully but high into a pint glass to make a big stiff head, leaving a quarter oz of murky yeast lees in the bottle. The yeast taste is so predominant in this ale that I like it better leaving some out of the pour. The head settles in about two minutes, but carbonation is so high, a ring of foam lasts for as long as I can drink this serving.
Color is 13 on my SRM chart, hazy with the yeast.
Smells sweet and yeasty and alcoholic; can't smell hops at all.
Taste is really delicious: the yeast is a funky sour barnyard good solid cheese with sweet malt and fruity juicy bright clear clean feeling that slides quickly from sinuses to gullet as I swallow. The aftertaste seems to make the salivary ducts under my tongue drool, tho maybe that's just because I want another swallow real soon. The yeast is so strong here that malt barely peeks out, and the hops don't show up till a few moments after swallowing. A mouthful held before swallowing blossoms with thick creamy foaming ale joy that you might imagine a bit too sweet and yeasty, but when swallowed it all goes down clean as a flash of orange brown light.
