Every pirate lives for something different. For some, it's the open sea. For others (the masochists), it's the food. For you, it's definitely the fighting. Two things complete your pirate persona: style and swagger. Maybe a little too much swagger sometimes -- but who really cares? Arr!

Light Liquid Hops.

I recieved this brew as part of the HBT 2007 brewswap. Thanks KnipKnup....

Pour: Nice sound of carbonation at opening, poured down the middle of a standard pint glass and was rewarded with a nice condensed head that measured about .75". Head was a pleasant off white color that lasted for about 3-4 minutes.

Visual: The 60L crystal really gave the brew a deep copper color. Some chill haze was evident, though it did not detract from my enjoyment of the brew.

Aroma: A very nice caramel nose followed by some citrusy overtones upon swirling of the glass. Smelled very sweet and inviting.

Taste: Sweet and "caramely", with just enough hop presence to keep in interesting. A very mild cinnamon/nutmeg flavor becomes apparent as in warms on your tounge and finishes with the lingering taste of raisin.

Overall Impression: While billed as a Pale Ale, I think it leans more towards the amber end of the spectrum. I found it very similar to Mac & Jacks African Amber Ale, a beer that I really like, but slightly more "festive". I will definitely be making a "winter warmer" version of this beer . Great work KnipKnup. Thanks very much.
