look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

22 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Handwritten Batch #75 on the label. My third beer from Chicago's Spiteful Brewing.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a finger and a half of soft fluffy soapy khaki head on top of a bright burnt sienna orange colored body with some ruby red highlights when held to the light. Scattered lacing. Looks very nice.

S - Smell is of bright juicy floral & tropical hops, grass, some cream, some soapiness, red / amber malt, caramel, faint molasses / brown sugar, and a hint of alcohol.

T - Taste is of big bitter grapefruit hops, peppery rye, caramel / amber malt, some brown sugar sweetness, and some dirty herbal earthiness.

M - Feel goes down smooth and clean, with some herbal grapefruit hop bitterness clinging to the palate. Medium full body with good carbonation.

Overall, another nice beer from Spiteful Brewing. These guys haven't let me down yet, and by the looks of things, it seems like I'm going to have to try some more of their beers. These local Chicago breweries have really been doing great things lately.

Spiteful Brewing Negative Nancy ---4/5.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Great red color. Served with a nice two finger white head that leaves lacing and is downright thick. Not sure what else I could ask for.
S: Malt with some spice to it. Citrus that is totally on the lemon side rather than orange/grapefruit/mango.
T: Mild sweetness that is balanced with the lemon coming through on the palate. Really low overall residual bitterness. The more I drink it, the more the bitter hangs around a little. It's not overpowering at all though. Light alcohol burn at the end... not necessarily bad though.
M: Medium. Maybe a little on the light side. Nothing to write home about.
O: Solid beer that I'd have another one of. It doesn't do anything amazing, but it's a solid offering and worth a try.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - Poured from the bottle into a pint glass a reddish gold color with a beige 1/2 inch of fairly dense foam. Didn't really leave a lot of lacing and the foam dropped quickly into the glass, leaving a ring of muddy looking foam around the edge. I would have like a deeper red color.

S - I pick up caramel, malt, sugar, pear Floods the nostrils with sweet caramel malt, candy sugar, pear, apple, and a bit of spicy, floral hops.

T - Really good beer. I pick up some candied fruit, caramel, and a hint of - believe it or not - buttered popcorn! Starts and finishes with some hop astringency.

M - Lots of malt smoothness on the tongue, decently heft. A bit of oily hop oils follow when you finish the beer.

O - I liked this beer, it's really drinkable, favorably comparable to Lagunitas Lucky 13 or Revolutions Red Skull.
