Chad9976 (604) - Albany, USA - JUL 16, 2011

On cask at The Lionheart Pub in downtown Albany, NY.

Apperance: Looks like juice. Hazy flat orange color. No head. No lacing. Not bad. Not very good either.

Smell: Not much aroma. Kind of a guava like scent. Some piney hops as well. Brown sugar scent as well ( from the maple syrup?)

Tastes like juice up front. Suprisingly sweet in the middle. Some brown sugar as well. The finish is bitter and dry. Hops linger for a moment. There also seems to be some rummlike heat. Not super delicious but tasty.

Mouthfeel is a tad thin and flat. But then again I drank it on cask so that’s par for the course.

Drinkablilty is good. Beer becomes more bitter and drier as I get towards the bottom. Quite refreshing initially though.

Overall a good beer but it doesn’t remind me of the 60 or the 90 Minute. Just seems like a solid craft beer.

Grade: 7/10
