Double Nickel Brewing Company "Mother Leeds"
on tap at the brewery on 23 April 2016

To explain the name, "Mother Leeds" supposedly gave birth to the "Jersey Devil", her 13th child, in 1735. It's an interesting tale if you'd like to look it up.

This "Mother Leeds", however, is a strong brown ale seemingly done in the English style.

It's a hazy deep russet brown in color with a creamy khaki head that holds well and leaves decent lace. The nose is malty: grainy, nutty, and toasty with notes of caramel and cocoa. The flavor adds fruitiness (berry, apple, raisin) and a hop character that's minty, grassy, and leafy. A solid bitterness balances it (is it just 30 IBUs?) and it finishes dry and gently lingering.
