Description from the menu: "Easy drinking ale. Deep in color with a slight hop flavor, subtle complexity and a bit of malt sweetness on the finish... Brewed with Michael McNally, the chef from London Grill, in honor of their 20th anniversary."
Served in a pint, this brew appears a dark amber to brown color with a finger of tan froth across the top. Fairly decent retention throughout the experience with patches of lacing sticking along the glassware.
The smell of this brew has sulfur and tangy alcohol smelling elements. Some lemon comes forward somewhat like coriander. There is some zesty noble hop character to this brew as it warms up mixed with light notes of caramel malt.
The taste is tangy and somewhat mineral filled with a twang. Some zesty hops provide a contrastic bitterness to the toasty caramel sweetness that runs through the body. It has a toasty to bready grain quality that lasts inside the mouth with some fusel alcohol flavors. Minor notes of citrus and an alcohol tangy bring up the finish.
This is a medium bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. A bit peculiar overall with a strange combination of lemon verse tangy alcohol and sulfur. I could finish my glass but wasn't interested in having any more.
Serving type: on-tap
