    Pours a light golden color. Good head retention, with some lacing. At first, the taste of a slightly bitter grain, but after I swallowed, I noticed a distinct sweet fruitiness. Almost like sweet grapes. There's a subtle bitterness and it's just a little watery. Good, but not great. There's nothing that really stands out about it, other than the title.

    Pours a rich amber colored body sporting a somewhat melancholy foamy head. No big signs of carbonation that I took note of. As with most English pale ales, this one has the pleasant scents nuts and butter and the taste supports those scents with strong flavors of nuts and butter; I did note that the hops presents quite a bitter punch on the first few sips but mellows out after a while. It’s not real heavy so it’s a real good session beer! But for me this was a fun beer just because of the label as this ale was “tempered over burning witches“!!

    [Best served in an English pint]

    Poured a clear light brown with a large frothy white head that dissapated quickly and had fair lacing. The aroma was pleasant with the scent of caramel malts, a sweet yeast and a mild grassy hop. It tasted mildly sweet in the beginning and finished about the same with a hint of caramel and hops with the flavor being very light and fading quickly at the finish. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a soft carbonation. Overall a very, very mild tasting brew. I think I like the name better than the beer.

    I was really disappointed in this one. I found this at my local bottle shop, and I just really wanted the bottle. Well, good thing the bottle is cool, because the beer had nothing behind it.

    I tried this beer last week, a buddy brought me a six pack back from S. DaKota. It is mild for an ale, crisp taste with a nice finish.
