Consumed on November 10th, 2010 at Blue Palms, Hollywood, CA.

Deep peach/copper color. Low carbonation.

Little aroma, save for a fleeting note of soap.

Flavor is relatively light and sweet. Evaporative, almost. Some oak notes and a touch of caramel and crystal malt. Vague resiny character (from hops?) but very restrained. As the bottom of the glass gets closer, booze notes and more bitter and herbal hop flavors emerge.

Mouthfeel unremarkable.

Surprised at the relatively mild (bordering on absent) flavor of this 11% brew.
