This wasn't too bad. Very good good balance with malts and hops and a slightly interesting take on the Belgian Strong Dark variation on a lighter tone. Perhaps a bit too malty, but quite good with the overall balance. Good carbonation and dangerously easy to drink. Will buy again. Enjoyed within 30 minutes after pour, beginning at 40 degrees.

Decanted from a 12 oz can into a Weissbier vase; serial number 60727A1BE, but no discernible production information.
A: Pours a clear amber to light copper with solid carbonation producing a one inch head. Scattered lacing.
S: Toasty and spicy aromas with yeasty floral and peppery notes.
T: Citrus and pine flavors balancing a light but respectable bitterness. Bitter aftertaste, even tingling so.
M: Medium bodied with persistent, albeit increasingly lighter, carbonation.
O: Very enjoyable. Drinks more like an American IPA. Not that I'm complaining . . .

A: moderately hazy; bronze in color; 1 finger off white head that receded to a wispy cap; nice lacing;

S: subdued; what's there is earthy caramel; there's a hint of orange in the background;

T: follows the nose up front; middle is somewhat sweet from the caramel malt; finish is mild to moderately bitter without much flavor;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; dry finish;

O: maltier than I would expect from an APA;

Poured on tap in the west village before meeting some buddies for steaks at Old Homestead. Pours crisp and amber, little head. Nose is balanced but paced by earthy and medicinal hops.

Taste is similar. Easy to drink and reasonably complex. Not awesome but pretty enjoyable in the moment.

CAN
Dark amber with leggy ivory foam. 4
Caramel with orange rind and flowers. 3.75
Thread of toffee, slight peanut skin, then more orange rind, with resin, pine bark, spice and tangerine juice to end. 3.75
Medium, chewy, slight oil. 3.75

Cascade + Centennial.

“6 07 27” stamped on the can - I hope this didn’t sit in Penn Station for 6 months. Doesn’t smell worse for the wear - nose is straight 2003, all Cascade and a big sweet backbone. And so it goes: bigger-than-fashionable malts (Caramunich and Vienna) that only get bigger and more English with warmth, laying underneath classic C hopping.

It’s not bad; a bit rough round the edges, maybe. I just don’t see the need for this beer when I can get SNPA in every corner bodega. 3.75
