on tap at bike café. the pour is much darker than expected, almost looks like a brown ale, letting some light pass and glowing red, but looking pretty dark and thick. the head is a few fingers high and really thick, almost nitro style. the nose is English malts but not the sweetness and caramel flavors we usually associate with this. its more toasted than that, and I get a lot more soil and wood than I get sugar, which is fantastic. the flavor is pretty balanced with some goldings hops or something similar rounding out the finish. there is also a slight coffee aspect that adds some depth, and a really sturdy malt profile that gives this beer a ton of body, especially for a low abv brew. the carbonation is mellow, which is fine in this context, and the finish is bitter and dryish. a prime session beer for cold weather. by far the best offering ive had from hogshead, who seems to be shaping up a little bit in terms of quality. id love to try this on nitro!

Dark chestnut color. Served in the Imperial nonic with the mustache of foam per the English style. Spritzy enough to please the American palate. Plenty of roasted flavors. A little grain in the flavors, but overall quite clean.

You can only have so much malt in a low alcohol beer like this, but they achieve a great balance. It tastes malty, though watery and refreshing, but it has just enough edge to it. Nicely touched with hops, but not overly bitter. Hugely drinkable.

Certainly one of the more flavorful beers I've had for so low of alcohol content. Utah brewers, take note! On tap at the west Denver brewpub.
