On tap at TH.
Labeled as a "Traditional ale."

Hazy golden-straw pour, with a frothy white head; nice retention and lacing. Light aroma, bready yeast, toasted grains, hints of fruity esters. Taste of toasted grains and cooked corn, some woodiness or huskiness, mid-palate brought in flavors of cantaloupe--quite distinct, actually--and very light floral hop notes. Grainy finish. Body was medium, and the mouthfeel was really quite smooth and creamy, almost like a nitro pour. Perhaps this was not one of Tired Hands' best brews, but there was a crafty complexity to it that must be acknowledged.

The beer has yeast, a light breadiness and grassy hops.

The beer follows of mostly breadiness, and then a bright grapefruit. There's spice and drying on the finish. It's has drying similarities to white wine.

One of the less interesting beers that I tried of the bunch at Tired Hands.

Tap at Tired Hands. From notes.

A - Poured light orange and cloudy with a film of white head that left no lace or retention.

S - A little tart, lemon, wood, mild grape.

T - Grainy, a bit tame with the Flemmish Red barrel barely showing it's character. A little zippy citrus.

M - Medium body, mild carbonation, drying finish.

O/D - This was probably the worst of their beers I tried. The barrel character was something I was hoping would jump out a bit more. Interesting, but definitely a one and done. Decent though.
