Notes/Commercial Description:
For this ambitious liquid time capsule, we used ingredients and traditions plucked from Egyptian hieroglyphics.

Ta Henket is brewed with an ancient form of wheat and loaves of hearth-baked bread, and it's flavored with chamomile, dom-palm fruit and Middle Eastern herbs. To ferment this earthy ancient ale, Sam and friends traveled to Cairo, set out baited petri dishes and captured a native Egyptian saccharomyces yeast strain.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

25oz to a snifter because I have no idea what else to serve it in

Pours a vibrant gold with a finger of foam that dies down pretty quick. Strong carbonation stemming from the middle, moderate lacing. This beer's okay looking

Smells of slightly tart apples, floral earthy hops, honey, chamomile, herbal spices, cinnamon, and a sweet malty backbone. Everything comes together okay

Tastes of strong herbal and earthy spice, apple and other light fruits, floral chamomile, honey notes, and a pale wheaty malt

Feel is pretty light and wet, not much bitterness and as expected, not much alcohol present. Drinks easy

Overall a pretty interesting beer. Pretty neat of dog fish head to have an ancient beer line. It was good, but not $12 good
