Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: MasterSki on 10-13-2013

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Brace yourself for the extreme quaffability, severe mellowness, and aggressive tenderness in this loving embrace between two of Indiana’s most celebrated breweries. Brewers from Sun King and Three Floyds came together to produce this belligerently sessionable English-Style Best Bitter, brewed to celebrate the Sun King CANvitational.

Pours a color resembling iced tea, which becomes a theme with this beer. It had a bright white frothy foam for a cap.

The aroma is a bit twangy at first but settles nicely into a more malty scent. Caramel and toffee malts, minty tea leaves and a light apricot reaches the nose.

The flavor is also malty but more of a tea leaf flavor. It actually tastes more like sweet iced tea as you drink it with a dark fruit, maybe raisin finish.

The feel is very light and refreshing, almost watery, like iced tea.

Good beer, especially if you enjoy the malt flavor that resembles the tea leaf, or should I say....iced tea.
