I finally was able to get my hands on the fabled Pliny the Elder and I have to say, i'm not all too blown away.
Appearance: The appearance of the beer is nice. Nice, copperish color with a golden hue and a remote cloudiness to it.
Smell: Pine. I'm not sure why, but I seem to be a little sensitive to that odor, so I got a fist full of pine stuck in my nostrils along with a nice hoppy bitterness at the end.
Taste: Again, the pine. Once the pine settles, it finishes off to be a very nicely balanced beer. The pine leads to a delicious hop profile with a refreshing bitter finish.
Overall: I'm sure my biased against the dreaded pine might have skewed my perceptions of this beer, however I think it's good mostly because of how well balanced the flavors are. To me, it's just not as mind blowing as everyone else says
Serving type: bottle
