Crust, Caramel, Clean, Grassy

Pretty much a mouthful of bread, perhaps more crust as well. Very much a malt bomb with a grainy character that does not shake off the palate. Boarding on cloying, but we’ll keep on sipping. Kiss of caramel and a hint of alcohol. A bit off balance though the malt character is very much there, just was hoping for a bit more hop to keep things in check.

12 ounce bottle -> snifter

A - cloudy deep amber with a large soapy head, great retention and great lacing.

S - The nose is weak. I can't really pick much up from it.

T - Very malty forward with some lemon and orange peel notes, finishes crisp with a bitterness that is both pine and paper.

M - crisp with great carbonation

O - nice offering with big flavor and low ABV.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark bronze color with amber hues and a 1 inch head. Smell is mild, a few malts are present. Taste is crisp, malts, light hops, touch of caramel, easy drinking. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

Short note, Just picked up a six pack 4/24/15. Quite tasty. I would assume that it is not retired?

Poured out a clear, copper/amber color with a one-finger, white head of foam. It left minimal lacing. It smelled of roasty malt with touch of grassy hops. It had a sweet malty flavor with a grassy hop bitterness. It was crisp, sharp and smooth.

Poured with a nice head that leaves good lacing on the glass as it recedes.

A little cloudy looking.

Smell is pumpkin, licorice, coffee, with a little grapefruit. A nice deep smell.

The taste is nice and bitter with grapefruit and orange rind and parchment paper and the taste lasts.

It has a good meatiness feel in the mouth.

I would definitely buy this beer again.

The label says the brewery is in Madison, AL.

ABV is 5.0%.

Brewer's web site is bluepantsbrew.com.
