Formerly called "Crystal Bitter" just arrived here in Juneau, AK this past week as "Spin Cycle." I confirmed with the No-Li Brewhouse website, yes, it has been renamed.

Into a pint glass:

A: dark red/ruby colored body also slightly transparent with a two finger white foamy head that dies at a nice pace, light lacing that tries to spider web but tends to kinda get a bit messy and all over the place

S: large amount of English malts that become more "balanced" like an English bitter normally does as it warms, I will admit I believe there's some "brown sugar" starting to come through in the aroma

T: slightly malty like an English bitter should be, but not leaning towards the bitter or malty side

M: light to medium, sessionable - only as any English bitter can be - so slightly, carbonation runs really smooth around my tongue and mouth - gets kinda creamy

O: I say this is a good English bitter that I would have again, good job No-Li.

22 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy deep ruby copper color with a 2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, orange zest, lemon zest, pear, apple, floral, grass, light pine, herbal, and floral/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of hop, malt, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, orange peel, pear, apple, nuttiness, floral, grass, pine, herbal and floral/yeast earthiness. Moderate earthy herbal/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, biscuit, nuttiness, orange zest, pear, apple, floral, grass, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; with nice robustness, malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, smooth, and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice ESB style. All around good balance and robustness of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
