On-cask 2/13/08 at the brewpub, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep coppery brown color, with a short dense off-white head that fades very slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is full of hops and citrus, with a light background of caramelized malts.

T: The taste is creamy and malty up front since it was on-cask. Then a strong burst of floral hops comes in along with a fruity citrus sweetness. The after-taste is hoppy and bitter.

M: Smooth and quite crisp for a cask beer, medium body, light carbonation, finish is clean and dry.

D: Very tasty, goes down easy, not too filling, nice kick, I usually prefer this type of beer on a standard tap, but this was very good. I'd be interested to compare it, if it ever shows up on a regular tap.

Tap poured into pint glass at the trinity brew house

Opaque brown, looks like an iced tea, thin layer of taupe bubbles quickly settled into a ring

Hop aroma, faint pine , good malt base

Fresh , fresh, fresh brewed hop taste , no bite , smooth

Slight lingering of taste in the roof of the mouth , suds up but quickly settles

Good beer

Picked up the growler at this brewpub. This is one of the best beers I've had. Reminds me of Dogfish 90 Min (a personal favorite). Deep red pour. Aroma of (not overpowering) fresh flowers. A slightly nutty, slightly sweet, and earthy taste that is very mellow and pleasent. Mouthfeel is smooth and the finish is long, but not obstrusive. I could drink this all day. Quite the experience. If you're in Prov., RI, you gotta stop in and pick one up, you won't be disappointed.
