This one was a special one time release for the OTH release party. It is a basic amber ale aged on cedar spirals.

A: Pours a slightly cloudy amber hue. Nice foamy head with ok retention. Some spotty lace noted.

S: The nose is all about the hops and the cedar. Lots of grapefruit with bold earthy woody fresh cut cedar.

T: Same as aroma. Solid amber used as a base here. Nicely hopped with citrus notes. The cedar pushes through in the middle and overpowers. The finish if full of earthy woody cedar with brings out a touch of pepper like spice as well.

M: On the thinner side of medium. Good carbonation.

D: Not bad. Not CCB's best beer by far, but tasty and unique nonetheless.
