A: From my Craft and Growler 16oz growler, it pours about a half-finger of head in my Peticolas pint glass. Color is golden-brown, and lacing is slight and uneven.

S: A bitter hop profile is immediately present on the nose, and there's a hint of nutmeg in conjunction with a clean malt base. It's a really warm and inviting aroma.

T: The flavor is much more bitter, but it cascades into earthy malt undertones with a smooth, dry finish. The alcohol is slightly present, too, which pairs nicely with the bitter-forward flavor. We have a throw-back here to a more English pub-inspired brew.

M: Slightly carbonated and medium-bodied, this brew is great on a warm spring or summer afternoon in sunny Texas.

O: Michael Peticolas is a stand-up dude, and this beer lives up to his name. It's a great addition to his English-inspired line-up of great local beer.

On tap @ Julian's Tyler TX from a Palm Belge Tulip / Snifter. Beer is a hazy translucent orange with tiny bubbles and decent lace. It's hard to be objective about a beer I know has won a recent gold at this year's GABF but this beer is all about mouthfeel and finish. Mouthfeel like an ever so cozy comforter on a snowy full moon night - it's something to savor and be soothed in it's warmth. The hops are clean and lingering. They make you pause and contemplate before your next sip. This could be an everyday go to beer. Not one that's gonna floor you after 2 pints or slap you in the face with a Cascade only maltless hop bomb...not that I don't love maltless hop bombs - I just can't drink them every day. Special thanks to Jerod for being the first to drive all over Texas to bring the best to Tyler.
