(Served in an American pint glass)

A- This beer has a crystal clear apricot body with a thin white ring of head supported by big bubbles that gentle glide to the surface.

S- The soft note of caramel malt has a soft honey comb note to it. There is a soft medicinal note to the finish.

T- The light dry caramel malt note as a light biscuit quality and a bitterness at the finish that is more astringent and medicinal than hoppy. There is a light woody note like dry mushrooms is in there aswell.

M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with a big fizz finish.

D- This beer is a bit bland with a medicinal quality that is a bit odd.

Appearance - Let me just start out by saying, "huh?" There are little floaty thingys in this beer. I don't know what to make that. At first glance the Herbal Ale looks to be an amber hue with an suble oragne glow. Topped with a 1/4 inch of white head that lasts for a minute or two. Then, the floaty thingys.

Smell - The hops are eveident in the scent but there is something uncommon there as well.

Taste - The hoppiness covers up any real distinctiveness this Madtown brewer may have had. However, there's an aftertaste not common to any brew I frequent. The sharpness in the the flavor is rather impressive. Take a few more slow sips and you'll come accross very different flavors from start to finish.

Mouthfeel - Smooth, but considering the difference in flavors throughout each gulp the location of the impact on the tongue remains the same. Maybe that's an impressive feat. I'll go with that.

~ I'm sorry but the floaty thingys really turn me away from the brew. If not for that I'd likely purchase this beer again. Most likley, this was a one night stand.
