3.8/5  rDev +3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Purchased in a Growler from Ale Yeah, Roswell GA. Served in a snifter.

A: A light mahogany with a hint of copper. Not as dark as I would expect from some Old Ales but still in the ballpark.

S: Carries a grain scent from front to back though in the middle you pick up a little bit of the malt aroma and something a little creamy.

T: The front of the palate picks up the caramelly sweet malt flavor but definitely carries the citrusy hops on the back end and into the after taste. I find myself wanting more of that sweet raisin after taste of other old ales but keep coming back for another swig. It is a balanced beer from front to back.

M: Lighter than I expected (could be that lack of raisin) with less carbonation after the original pour. Plus it has a light oily viscosity that coats the tongue. Reminds me of Bergamot in Earl Grey tea. Might have to try some for that to make sense. The mouthfeel is ok though I would like it to be a little heavier on a cold winter's night.

O: Overall it is a pretty good beer. Would definitely poor another, oops, just did. I enjoy the way that the taste is not overly complex and changes significantly from the front to back. It may be the gravity of beers I drink but I find the alcohol tones fairly laid back though you still get a nice warming in the tummy.

Serving type: growler
