I am still reducing and eradicating my backlog of bottles, but I have been mostly impressed so far with this brewery's beers. My thanks to the Friendly Greek Bottle Shop for making them available to us.

From the bottle: "Stop by & visit us in Spartanburg[,]SC"; "Drink Smart"; "Handcrafted Every [Bottle,] [Drop,] [Time]"; "Ruthless to the pit, the King is a tasty tyrant to be feared and revered. Cloaked in gold with an air of fresh South Carolina peaches, it's easy to fall prey to is majesty's palatable charms. Respect the power of the peach, or it's off with your head." Is it me, or does the King resemble Felonious Monk IRL?

I am ruthless when it comes to aggro pours! I love watching the pseudo-cascade occur, the development of two fingers of tawny head with decent retention and finally, the release of the esters. Once more, a beer smelled like preserves in my kitchen. I really miss my grandmothers, both of whom were well versed in the culinary arts. They were the ones who taught me to can fruits and vegetables during the summer months so that they would be available in the wintertime. Beyond simple canning was the production of jams, jellies and preserves and that is what this beer reminded me of. Color was a hazy deep-amber (SRM = > 9, < 13). Once the head settled, I leaned in for a better sniff and then it really hit me - peach brandy! There was a group of us on the USS Fulton (AS-11) in 1985 that were all in our early 20s while Connecticut's drinking age was still 20 y/o. We did not have a lot of money, so we would have the evening meal on the mess decks, then go to a nearby liquor store and get a couple of cases of cheap beer and some fruit brandy, usually blackberry, but occasionally peach, and listen to the radio from local WCNI-FM while throwing frisbees. Man, I had not thought about those days in years! Mouthfeel was medium-to-full. Taste was peachy keen, but with a real heat to go with it. Phew! Man, I was totally digging this action. Imperial Wheat, eh? Whoda thunk it? Lay this on some of the chicks who profess not to like beer and see what happens ... Sure, it had a slight burn on the finish, but the peach flavor trumped all.

- Brewed with coriander and fermented with peaches and natural flavors.

A: Dark peach orange tones are a perfect match with a dirty seashell white head that was thin, coarse and short lasting. Moderate carbonation presence with a thin weak, broken band of lace that barely caught the eye.

S: Nose was whole sweet, fuzzy peaches with a touch of dry alcohol. Moderate in strength, linear in complexity.

T: Peach malt, sweet with some aspect of the natural peaches coming through at first. Peach alcohol, peach schnapps? warmth on the finish. Fairly linear again in delivery.

M: Crisp around the tongues edges, sticky, sweet residual malt with a syrup like consistency.

O: Overall while not a bad beer, it is certainly not one that is gonna stand out, more of a 3.25 effort. Alright but there are much better peach based beers out there (selins grove, bullfrog) that are much more worthy of spending time on. This one was middle of the road, safe. Some natural peachiness, but also some of the added natural flavors that tasted a bit unnatural (extract additions). The brewery's name brings images of a tobacco giant (RJ Reynolds) merging with a planet hollywood type eatery trying to brew beer. Call me when you do a tomacco style.
