This was one of the biggest surprises for me at the OBF this year. I've had a number of Rock Bottom beers in the past, and though they were good, they weren't "write home to momma" good.

The Thermidor was a rich, deep golden hue which held the light surprisingly well in a plastic mug. A nice sustaining lace capped the beer (probably how the light got in..) and gave off a pleasant orchard-like aroma. The taste was almost like dipping an apple into beer then eating the slice. It was a very clean flavor with slight hints of spices with the malt. Definitely imparted a full, happy mouth feeling, and was amazingly satisfying.

Tasted at the 2003 Oregon Brewers Fest. Medium gold color. Large head. Aroma is touches of barnyard, leather and must. A medium bodied biere de garde. Malts are nutty and sweet. Hops are slightly spicy. A mild nutty, musty flavor predominates. Nice. Very drinkable, especially on a hot summer day. Well balanced. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
