Served in a 5oz taster glass at Tighthead 7/21/12.
A: Served a hazy, bright bronze color with a thin shock of white foam on top. A suprising amount of lace was left behind.
S: Quite sweet on the nose. Caramel, orange, and melon rind.
T: Very much like the smell. It's got all the sweet bases covered but could use more in the way of hop flavors.
M: Very slick and (almost syrup-y) sweet with a slight hint of alcohol astringency.
O: Not bad but could use more of rough edge to tighten it up. Too sweet to have more than just a sample.

Served in a goblet at the TH tap room.
Lotta dog-related beers coming my way today, with this one following the purchase of Smuttynose Really Old Brown Dog and Pipeworks Jones Dog earlier. Weird. Anyway, this stuff pours a mostly clear golden-bronze topped by a half-finger of white foam. The nose comprises light booze, mandarin orange syrup, mild leek, slightly spicy greens, strong caramel, weak honey, and a vague notion of melon-like fruit. The taste brings in more of the same, with the leek and melon notes coming in fairly powerfully, each aiding the other in strength training. What results is a sweet, kinda boozy, kinda spicy, kinda fruity blast of flavor. Honestly, though, it comes off a bit abrasive for my liking. The body is a stolid medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a lightly chewy feel. Overall, a nice b-wine, but one I just couldn't get entirely into. It was well-made, but not my particular cup o' tea...
