Thanks to Jay23 for sending me this growler, it arrived 8/23 and it was consumed that same day ;o) Me and a friend pretty much finished the whole growler (althought I did save about 8oz for a third friend that got here late, that’s what he gets for being late, haha).

Poured a copper, muddy brown hue with about ½ inch of foam.

The smell was of noble hops, earthy, fruity, toast, butterscotch and caramel. Very bready. The bread aroma really deepened as the as the beer warmed up, a lot of toast and multi-grain bread.

The taste was similar to the aroma but the bread was more intense in the taste. Toast and a bit of chocolate followed with some earth and finished with a bit of bitterness. Dry finish with toasted bread. A little fruity too, almost vinous. During the second or third glass I tasted a bit of berries and grapes.

Very decent mouthfeel, pretty good for the style.

Now, Honker’s Ale is one of my favorite session brews, this one was still decent and actually quite good for the style but I have a soft spot for the Honker’s.
