Bottle from trade with Cbuk1013. Pours light gold with thin white head. Decent lacing and aromatics. Aroma is peanuts, hay, grass.

Earthy, nutty taste with smooth hop bitterness. One of the first I can recall with this peanut component. I may be way off but this was an interesting addition. I prefer this to the Chestnut Ale and some of the pecan-laden beers from previous years. Well done.

I am not a fan of this one....in fact im not sure I'll even finish it. The beer poured a nice amber with white head that is leaving a lace. The scent has a lactose like flare with hints of alcohol. The taste it bitter and has a funky after taste. The mouthfeel is medium in body with subtle carbonation. Overall....no way. I might try it again if it was from the tap.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly hazy orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, melon, citrus peel, light pine, caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate bready malt sweetness; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and lightly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice American pale ale. All around good complexity, balance, and robustness of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
