16 ounce pint - Taco Mac (Lindbergh) in Atlanta, Georgia.

Appearance: Orange-gold body, light haze, with a foamy, white, lasting head with gobs of lacing.

Smell: A good amount of lightly spicy cedar on the nose, with additional bready pale malt, fresh citrus fruits.

Taste: A light pale maltiness, lightly bready with a modest pinch of sugar cookie crumbs. The sweetness remains light, even reasonable. Peppery cedar wood quality throughout. Fruity citrus tastes of lemon, orange, grapefruit. Light resin hint. Medium bitterness. Lightly drying, lightly bitter, leisurely finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Light smoothness present for an easy-going mouthfeel.

Overall: Good stuff. It would have been a nice, flavorful PA even before the cedar. Like Cigar City's Humidor Series, you're going to need to appreciate cedar to fully enjoy this.

A: clear dark golden brown, minimal head and lacing
S: little woody, but more like wet leaves, reminding me of a damp fall walk I the woods. Nothing overpowering though, to me.
T/M: it's a little strange, with some tastes similar to the nose. Starts off earthy, damp, woody. A dry bitterness creeps in that doesn't change the profile until the ending of the taste where a pine taste grabs the mouth and holds for a little bit.
O: early in the beer I got some orange notes playing in with the taste, but got it less as the taste went on. I liked this because of the strangeness, but there isn't really much impressive about it.
