New Label Design
My prize for winning a bet with a co-worker.

App- Was a whole lot darker than I thought it would be. It was more of a brown with a bit of gold to it. Fairly dense in the glass with some good cling. Just a unique color for the style.

Smell- This was a pretty nice strong ale. Fairly boozy with a bit of citrus, cream, candy, grass and hay. A little strong but got the point across.

Taste- It was good but something just didnt sit right. It had a lot competeing in the glass and was flavorul. You got more orange fruits with orange, apricot and peach flavors melded with a bit of that aroma from the hay and grass. A little bitter and hoppy to balance it all out.

Mouth- A fairly medium body with a low-medium carbonation. A lot of peach, apricot and bitter on the finish. Fairly smooth and creamy as well.

Drink- It was a nice beer to sit with. I might have not needed to open this one last night but was good none the less.

Pours golden with a substantive lasting head. Neutral aroma. Scary bottle as moisture beads outside the cork. Average mouthfeel. Dirty blonde that degenerates into yeast and alcohol, a tad of spice and fruit and more would have been better. not great drinkability.Bottle in trade with West Coast rater.
