Cask at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is clear amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high beige head that died down, leaving a collar around the edge of the glass and a small patch of bubbles in the center.
S: Moderate aromas of sweet caramel malts are present in the nose along with hints of pine resin hops.
T: Like the smell, the taste is rather malty but finishes with hints of pine resin hops, the latter of which linger through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It seems to coat your mouth a little and there is some warming from the alcohol.
O: This beer has just enough hops in it to prevent any sweetness or stickiness. It's not that difficult to drink because no alcohol is perceptible in the taste.

Not familiar with the Brewery from a region of Long Island not known for great beer. So, not expecting much. Surprise!
L - Color is bourbon with a nice sticky eggwhite head slowly replaced by a continuing fine carbonation.
S - Like a mix of a lovely red and a fine American IPA. Malt and fruit and pine and more - nothing jumps out, but lots going on.
T - First notice is thick and juicy mouth feel. Then, pretty much perfect balance of bready malt counterpoint of mild hop bitter and lots of tropical fruit and lots more.
O - Yes, surprise. I will be sampling other Barrier brews soon. And heading back to my bev center for more of this bottle which is in limited supply. Barrier is now on my search list.

The beer comes in a medium amber color.

The aroma smacks of pine, sticky resin, lots of green dank action, sweet caramel malts.

The flavor follows stiff piney bitterness along with lots of sticky resin, complimented by sweet malts and a lingering herbaceous bitterness.
