Poured from a green 12oz bottle sent to me by JZeilinger. The whale of all whales!

A: Pours a nice light amber with a lively off-white head. Head recedes to some wisps on the surface.

S: Typical AAL aroma. Faint sourish grain and corn. A little bit of chalky yeast.

T: Opens with a pleasing wave of coarse grain and some slightly bitter hops. Smooths out into a strong and pleasant nuttiness, and a bit of a rice-like taste, which evolves into some more subtle spicy hoppiness and grain. Ever-so-slight hop bitterness returns in the finish. Grain lingers.

M: Slightly thicker than the usual mass-produced lagers. Almost medium-bodied.

O: Delivers in the appearance and taste. I can see why it has such a hold in its region. Not bad at all.

A - A clear orange amber color with about a solid inch of head but no lacing

S - There wasn't a lot of smell, but there were some distinct roasted notes and a clean citrus grain smell.

T - There is some sweetness that mixes its way in (carmel? cherry? citrus?). You notice mostly the roasted barely but there are some nice clean hops as you swallow and the aroma reaches you.

M - Very smooth, and has a good clean feel to it.

O - I love this beer, but not because it stays true to a particular category of beer. It's not a "Traditional Lager" but it's also not just a "Red Ale". It takes the parts of each that it likes and makes a unique brew that packs a surprisingly deep character not often found in mass marketed beers.

Reviewed from notes. Had on tap yesterday at an Irish Pub in Midtown Manhattan.

A: Pours a clear orange copper. Weak head and lacing.

S: fairly strong. Woody, cherry.

T: Smoky, lagery, woody, cherry. Decent but weak and a tad dull.

M: A tad syrupy and undercarbonated.

O: I expected better from the oldest US brewery. Only bought it cause the choices were limited, and probably wouldn't buy it again.
