On draft at Rattle n Hum, NYC.

Poured a murky dark copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a light grainy sweetness and herbal hop.

The taste consisted of grainy caramel malts cut by a full earthy and herbal hop.

The mouthfeel was light with a lingering hop.

Overall a unique herbal forward ale.

Poured bottle 275 out of 1000 into a 13 oz tulip glass. Pours a ruby red, with a 3 inch tan head that leaves plenty of lacing behind. Smell is carmel, biscuit, pine, and some tangerine. Taste is different, some spice maybe cinnamon and more grapefruit than the nose would have you expect, with a blend of the flavors from the nose. Body is large for the small ABV, plenty of carbonation, not dry, and obviously easy drinking. This a nice beer, but at $15 a 750 very expensive and a one time purchase. Not sure why they corked it.
