What a long strange trip it has been. Haven't had this SF original in years and finally got to cracking one open tonight. I know packaging isn't everything, especially in the world of craft beer, but this bottle (and quite possibly the SNPA bottle) really define the underlying character of craft beer for me. Okay, let's get to the nitty-gritty. The color is a nice copper with a dense pillow-like head that hangs out for a good while. Nose is full of earthy characters with a bit of lemon on the back end. Complementing the nose, the flavors on this one are primarily earthy in nature with a well-balanced malt profile and faint orange rind quality. The body is very pleasantly round while finishing pretty clean. I could go on describing this beer, but really it deserves to be drunk. Next time you're out grab a sixer of this classic. Nazdravi.
