Bottle pour at Shelton Brothers The Festival 2014 held at Crafted in San Pedro, CA.

Batch # 9.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, fruit, and white wine aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, earth, spice, white wine, and pickle juice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of wood bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with nice barrel aged aspects, but the pickle juice element I am getting is odd.

Serving type: bottle.
