Faint fruit juice aroma. Taste continues the juice impression, but combined with a mild IPA in the background. Finishes with some light malt flavors, a bit of hop bitterness, and the slight grapefruit juice taste.
Rated at the edge of being old. Canned 2/9/2022, tasted on 7/28/2022.
Phenomenal carbonation, glad it’s a giant stream of steady little bubbles everywhere. Sweet aroma of nice stone fruit hops. Taste is sweet, almost puckering, with juicy hop flavor. Slight drying on the palate from the yeast on the back end, then leaves mouth fairly dry with just a hint of hops in background.
Bright flowery/citrus hop aroma. Clean taste of hops with a kind of bitterness that doesn’t have an edge to it. Overall smooth on the palate, but with lots of hop flavor. Minor hop bitterness in the aftertaste, even if the mouthfeel still is soft. Interesting combination that’s both sessionable and bitter at the same time.
Dark stout aroma. Slightly crisp flavor bite with a hint of the alcohol. Mainly tastes like a heavy stout, with hints of peanuts. Fades into an aftertaste that is a mix of dark malt roastiness and peanut flavor. Overall finishes fairly dry/clean.
Aroma of slight caramel malt, maybe some hop or yeast sweetness. Taste is even across the palate and had a balanced malt taste that gives way to a smooth hop flavor. Aftertaste has a slight lingering bitterness.
Typical slightly sweet caramel malt aroma. Initial taste has a very slight twang, that fades and is replaced by a mix of malt and yeast sweetness. Finishes cleanly with just a mild caramel malt flavor in the background.
Sweet, mild aroma of some hops and caramel malt. Slight edge of hops on first taste, but quickly overtaken but a smooth caramel malt flavor. Goes down fairly smoothly, almost slick-like, with a kick of hop bitterness at the very end.
Aroma is resiny thick. First drink has a slight crispness of hop bite to it, followed by a caramel malt flavor that’s not too sweet, and a little dark tasting. Aftertaste liners with expressive malt flavors and edge of hop bitterness.
