The Bruery Initiation Party 2013
Anaheim, CA

Slightly hazed golden and light cherry in color with a moderate amount of khaki colored bubbles sticking around. Leaves the glass only oily on the way down. Not remarkably attractive, but I wasn't expecting it to be.

Cherry aroma leads the way, though in a sweet, syrupy, ice cream topping sort-of fashion. There's some brown sugar and miscellaneous sweet bready malt character as well. The Maraschino cherries are unmistakable, however.

The flavor follows the aroma, with caramel swirl bread meeting with distinct cherry syrup sweetness. At the colder temperatures, this had more of a cough-syrup character, unfortunately, but as it warmed it became far more palatable. Glad to see The Bruery experimenting with this base beer. It's a versatile pallet for such adventures.

Medium bodied with very little carbonation.

Better as it warmed, though I couldn't tackle much more than the given sample.

On cask for the Bruery Initiation Celebration held at The Phoenix Club in Anaheim, CA.

Pours a clear light red with a foamy reddish-white head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, and Maraschino cherries in the sugar syrup. Taste is much the same with a very sweet but almost medicinal cherry flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is very sweet and strong.
