This is a brown ale brewed with honey (the same kind used in their Spring Ale).

On-tap at Bootlegger's

A: The pour is a mix of brown and dark amber colors with a huge khaki colored head.

S: There is a strange sweet-sour sort of thing going on here, sort of like there's still a bunch of yeast floating around. Some definite sweetness, almost like just eating some liquid malt extract (maybe from the honey?).

T: More of the same on the palate. Plenty of sweetness, some buttered toast, toffee, but a bit of acidity and a definite yeasty character.

M: The body is medium with the carbonation being a little on the high side.

D: As opposed to the Imperial Phoenix, I think this beer should end in the "pilot" stage. If nothing else, this needs a lot of work.
