Gainesville House of Beer - on-tap

A - pours a clear burnt orange. 1.5 fingers of thick off white head. Nice carbonation coming up.

S - earthy, oak, some citrus. A lot like the base Jai Alai but much more woody! Great nose.

T - sweet malts at the front, in comes this nice woodiness and slight smokiness. Hops are so perfectly placed and balanced. This is what its cracked up to be! Has nice spice notes in there as well.

M - medium body, very drinkable. Carbonation isn't a whole lot going down, but nice.

O - great. Could drink a few. Definitely feel the 7.5. Very good, as all CCB is.

A-Semi cloudy yellow-orange, nice carbonation, one finger head that tries to leave some lacing.

S-Wood, oak, spice, lots of spice, some earthy notes, not much citrus.

T-Good deal of wood and spices. Earthy, some dirt and grass. but the spice is the main flavor. Some bitterness.

M-Medium bodied, nice carbonation.

O-The cedar dominates the beer, the citrus/tropical notes of the base beer are overpowered by the oak.
