This is the Harpoon 100 Barrel Series session 48. Beer Trip 2013 "Polskie Mastne"

A polish "Old Style Ale".

A light amber and gold hued color, clear visibility. A substantial white crown forms 1" high, dissipates to a thin scattered lace.

Herbal and spice hops and yeast combo upfront in the nose. Tangy, with a mix of herbals, light malt, sweet and tangy effect overall.

The first impression is a sharp, tangy bite, light, crisp hit turns full-on mouth feel. a unique, spiced, herbal, earthy hop and yeast flavor, the light almost roastie malt is in fine balance, Earthy flavors, hardy dark wheat, charred grains, but in a light malty fashion. Never "heavy" or cloying.

Na Zdrowie indeed!

22 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter.

Pours orange-red-amber with high clarity and a small, fragile head.

Aroma: Nice sweet malts with spicy and floral tones plus a hint of fruit.

Flavor: Lightly spicy and herbal Polish hops, caramel malt, barrel wood. Well balanced and nicely complex.

Feel: Medium bodied; smooth with a clean, semi-dry finish.

O: Excellent. Drinks big for 5.8%. Very good use of barrel aging.

Foamy head that leaves a web of lace on the glass. Dark copper color. Clear.

This features a malty nose--some caramel and light biscuit. A bit of hop for balance.

This is dry, malty brew. It has a bit caramel. The swallow becomes bitter in a surprising way. It's an Amber style--quite good. Full body with slower carbonation.

Appearance: pours a dark orange color with some yellow highlights. A one inch head falls slowly to a thick surface covering.

Smell: bread and caramel are most notable.

Taste: caramel, bread, ripe fruit sweetness, a bit of earthiness, and a moderate bitterness are the main flavor components.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp throughout. Short lasting aftertaste.

Overall: a very drinkable european styled ale that is hearty enough to satisfy. The more I had of this beer the more I liked it.

22 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 3/15/2014. Pours slightly hazy pale orange copper color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of caramel, pear, apple, grape, toast, biscuit, floral, grass, herbal, clove, pepper, and herbal earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of bready malt, yeast, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toast, biscuit, pear, apple, grape, floral, grass, herbal, clove, pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Moderate amount of earthy herbal/floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, biscuit, pear, apple, grape, floral, grass, herbal, pepper, clove, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance, robustness, and complexity of malt, hop, and fruity yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, bready, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Polish old ale style. All around good balance, robustness, and complexity of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. Really enjoyed this one.

S: Some nice dark fruits and a little bit of spiciness. Some sweetness in the back, along with a very light hint of the alcohol

T: Starts off with the fruitiness and light spiciness and goes into a light bready sweetness from the malts. Finishes with a nice herbal quality and some lingering sweetness

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A very balanced brew with a good bit of maltiness. Very easy to drink and sip on. Another solid beer from the 100 barrel series
