Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This beer is the third installment of a beer brewed for head brewpub brewer Wil’s daughters, Gabrielle and Ciara. (First Hop Princess, then Rebellious, and now Battle of Wil's.)

Patagonia malt gives this medium-bodied brew its amber/reddish hue and toffee-like notes in the nose. On front of the palate, however, it is quite mild - not as sweet as one might expect. The single hop variety used, Centennial, makes its fresh presence known mid-palate.

The beer finishes clean, with a medium hop bitterness. Though a shade darker than the Iron Fist, it is lighter-bodied, a bit cleaner, and a bit lower IBUs.

32 IBU

Draft at the brewery, thanks Thomas & Jenny.
Tawny brownish amber, bright clarity, lasting foam and lace.
Nutty malt and resiny Centennial citrus rind aromas.
Taste has a subdued bitterness and toasty malt character, lingering dry bitterness.
Light supple feel, very drinkable. Overall a nice ESB.
