Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

The result of mystical exhortation and strange portents in the sky, Humble Patience was complex without being heavy...a marriage of many riches. An Irish-Style, deep-ruby Red Ale with tantalizing layers of flavor.

A - Poured out a clear, dark amber color with a one-finger tan head of bubbly foam. It left little to no lacing on the glass.

S - It smelled of sweetness and fruits. A good deal of breadiness.

T - It tasted malty and sweet with a grassy/earthy bitterness.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is an okay beer. Nothing fancy, but sessionable and easy-drinking.

Dark Brown, with a hint of red in the appearance. Very little head after the pour. Smells sweet and floral. (Before we have even taken a sip, head is gone). You get a lot of the malt and grain in the flavor, it's sweet with notes of toffee and caramel. It's relatively smooth- it has a good mouthfeel. Overall it is a nice beer, nothing spectacular, but it does seem to improve the more we sip it.
