Bottle dated 7/10/17. Old as hell, but it’s hard to find around here. CBF pint.

A: pours a clear reddish copper with streams and streams of carbonation. One finger thick, foamy beige head. Rings of lacing as I drink it down.

S: sweet and citrusy. Candied orange. Sugary malt. Smells like the Three Frogs I had a few weeks ago, or like the Sam Smith’s IPA. What they have in common is that they were all old hoppy beers around 45 IBUs. Classic APA aroma.

T: tastes shockingly like those two aforementioned. Moderately sweet, citrus, malt, floral arrival. Toasted caramel malt and cascade hop flowers on the middle. A crisp, clean finish with a faint hint of lingering hop. I’ll bet this has more citrus “pop” when fresh. Alas, it was between a six pack at five months old, or a single of unknown age (which turned out to be 10 months). Lacks the darkness or dankness that GL Burning River brings to the table.

M: solidly midweight with high, but not excessive carbonation. Very clean finishing. Not very slick. Way crisper texture than Ridge Trail.

O: this, even more than Sam Adams Boston Ale, GL Burning River, or Wolf’s Ridge Ridge Trail typifies the ubiquitous pale ales of the late 90s. It is a style that takes me back, and reminds me of many happy pints with friends. It is a beautifully executed example, and a shame beers like this have lost so much popularity. I hope it won’t continue to be so hard to find, and would gladly buy a six pack, as it clearly holds up to age fairly well.

Great Beer, had it on tap with chicken pesto. Great combo, balanced flavor, nice color, flavor and mouthfeel. This beer is hard to find in the Upper Midwest. Would love to have it on hand for my beer fridge.

Yeah, alright, down the oh so familiar red brick road with this one. Easy on the malt, easy on the caramel like Fergie singing the national Anthem, this one just delivers. Not hot like Rihanna cooking breakfast, but Aite enough like Katy Perry jarring some mint jelly.

Pours a wonderful amber brown with a small head. Flavor is great but also somewhat light, along with the feel. Functions more like a session ale. Simple yet effective.

A wonderful amber and easy to drink. Low fizz and a lot of flavor. Give it a try...you won't be disappointed.
