Presentation: It was poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. It has a hazy golden straw color with a big foamy white head that hangs out and leaves nice lace on the glass. The aroma has a touch of sweet wheat malt and honey with a hint of orange peel. Its flavor has a mild wheat presence with as noticeable sweet honey character. Orange citrus and mild hop bitterness add to the crisp refreshing character. Its light to medium bodied with average carbonation and it has a slightly sweet finish. It’s not overly complex but it gives you a refreshing simple quick hit of flavor on a hot summer day.
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 750ml bottle into a tulip glass. The label has a short description of the beer, a freshness date of "APR1210" printed on the bottle, the ABV% (8.2) and year it was made. (2009) Appearance: The body has a pale hazy orange tan color with a small white head. The head fades out quickly leaving nothing behind and making no lacing at all. Inside the body there are a few small deposits of yeast floating around. Smell: The aroma is quite fruity. It has a heavy orange like character with notes of orange blossom and mandarin orange peel. Under this are decent sweet bready and wheaty notes. Taste/Palate: There is defiantly a lot fruity orange and yeast character here. I get this fruity pebbles cereal thing with notes of bready yeast, wheat malt and a warm alcohol presence. It is sweet overall with just a little leafy hop bitterness towards the finish. The palate has a smooth, slick and heavy feel with very soft carbonation. Notes: I can’t help thinking that this is just a pumped up version of there regular Blue Moon.
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. A best before date is printed on the bottle. Appearance: The body has a deep golden color with very good clarity. On top the head builds up a light fluffy layer of soapy foam before quickly fading down to a small ring on the top. It is just off white in color and its lacing is very slick and slides down the glass. Smell: The aroma has a light sweetness of malt with a hint of citrus and a very slight spicy accent. Taste/Mouth feel: The main body has an almost honey like sweetness with a slight hint of citrus, mild spices and a fruity melon like thing going on. There are some light hop notes as well that work nicely with the subtle spices. It finishes on the sweet side with a smooth, wet and mellow texture. Its carbonation is soft and its medium gives it an easy drinkability. Notes: Overall it’s fairly simple and safe. Its note a stand out but it slides down nicely.
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Appearance: It has a pale straw yellow color with good clarity and visible carbonation. The head is thin, bright white and foamy. It quickly fades leaving little to no lace behind. Smell: The aroma is mild and has hints of light malty grains and husky notes. Taste/Mouth feel: The flavor is simple crisp and clean. Light malty grains give it a slightly sweet character with a touch of citrus and leafy/herbal hops. Its light body, fairly thin texture and crisp finish make it easy to drink. Notes: Overall it’s an easy drinking beer with a good clean favor but it’s not a stand out.
This one opened with a big rush of air and bubbles. It poured very foamy with loads of tiny little bubbles that slowly formed a thick, white and creamy head. Very cool looking! The body was a nice golden honey color with good clarity after it settled down. The aroma is light. Carmel malts and peach. The favor is buttery smooth and malty sweet up front. This fades to an odd watery and metallic middle that finishes with some herbal tea like hops. The palate is velvety smooth and medium bodied. Overall this is a grate looking beer not much flavor. Tetley’s is interesting however and I would like to try it on tap.
Presentation: It was poured from a brown, 1pt.0.9floz. or 500ml bottle into a pint glass. The body has a very dark brown color with some lighter brown highlights. Its head builds up thick and slowly settles down to thin cap that hangs on to the last sip. The head is tan in color and makes nice slippery lace that slowly slides down the glass as I drink. Its aroma is strong and has a heavy sweet and fruity malt character with a very noticeable alcohol presence in the nose. The overall flavor is very sweet with a sticky, almost syrupy texture. Sugary sweet malt with dark caramel, molasses and toffee notes dominate its character. There is a very noticeable alcohol presence in the flavor and notes of cherry cough drop with some mild herbal and leafy hops. Any bitterness from the hops is overpowered by the extremely sweet malt however. It finishes slowly with its malt lingering on the palate. Carbonation is moderate to average and it’s about medium bodied. Its overall drinkability for me was low due to its unchecked and unbalanced syrupy sweetness. The alcohol had some ruff edges as well; still this is a very interesting brew.
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The label has a nice description of the beer but there is no abv% or freshness date. Also of note the label does state that the Cape Ann Brewing Co. donates to the Northeast Seafood Coalition. Appearance: The body has very dark brown, nearly black color with a small white head on top. In no time the small head is reduced to just a wispy thin layer of off white foam. Lacing is next to nothing with just a few slick spots of lace. Smell: The aroma is that of a basic stout, dark roasted maltiness, with some modest pumpkin flesh notes and hints of spice. Taste/Palate: There is a nice light cinnamon and nutmeg spice blended into a nice roasty/toasty stout base. Pumpkin notes are also present but subdued. The overall feel was medium bodied and a little bit light and very drinkable. Notes: For me this beer was ok but I was looking for something to really stand out. I think I would like Cape Ann’s Imperial Pumpkin Stout more but that’s just a wild guess.
Presentation: Poured from a 330ml/11.2oz bottle in to a tulip glass. It has a hazy light golden yellow color with an excellent, huge white head. Its head is thick and frothy with stiff rocky peaks that last forever. The aroma is fruity and sweet with a nutty malt character and strong funky yeast. There is even a hint of coconut as well. The flavor starts off dry, with earthy yeast that turns malty, sweet and fruity. There is a slight hazelnut flavor along with tropical fruit notes and even a light coconut flavor as well. Hops add a light bitterness and herbal flavor to the finish. Its alcohol adds a pleasant warmth and sophistication to this smooth textured, medium bodied ale. This is a very good triple that has a standout flavor that I really enjoyed.
