Best Quote During Tasting
Chorizo slays all other types of sausage. End of story.
|Aroma - As soon as the cap was popped off, tart green apple aromas flooded my nostrils. Once poured, the beer becomes much better blended and reminded me of the apple cinnamon instant quaker oatmeal packs. It's got a cider quality to it because of the apples and there are also some toffee notes from the malts.|
|Appearance - The beer is a clear, medium amber with a sparkling white bubbled head. As the beer sits, the head slowly leaves until all that's left is a small ring that floats above the liquid.|
|Flavor - The apple is both the star of the show and a supporting player. As you drink it, the strong apple aroma is still part of the drinking experience but the flavor itself is more balanced. The cinnamon and apple fight for control and the apple wins by a 60/40 split. A general sweetness is also there but it's not overwhelming and works well with the other flavors.|
|Mouthfeel - The body is medium+ and the carbonation is a medium+. The fuller body makes this one a pleasure to drink and this is where it "feels" like a pumpkin beer.|
|Overall Impression - Spiced beers can get a little carried away and overdone. This one toes that line without ever crossing it. There's some big, bold flavors that you're not used to getting in a beer but they really do work well together. It's not one that I could drink all night but one or two by a fire pit in october?
