3.68/5 rDev +4.5%
Appearance is a cloudy light copper with a half finger of lacing. This offering is heavier in both body and flavor than the standards of this style. The flavor is malty with an almost molasses-like sweetness. The finish is semi-dry and lightly bitter. There is also a faint lingering sweet note.
I think that this experiment proves that not all beer styles are better "doubled" or "imperialed."

3.54/5 rDev +0.6%
Fills a North Coast pint glass with clear bright copper (SRM 12-14) while occasional columns of carbonation add to a thin, short-lived, off-white foam that deposits modest lacing.
The aroma opens with caramel and rustic tones, followed by lightly toasted malt and perhaps a hint of mint. This is generally a “beery” aroma.
While sweeter than anticipated, late modest bitterness does present itself along with toasted malt and a lingering, sharp astringency in the finish.
Lingering body with light alcohol and fizzy carbonation and a watery texture.
While this is a fine drinking beer, it lacks the crisp refreshing qualities one typically seeks late on a long hot summer day.
