7 October 2022. At Yard House, San Antonio. Shared with the lovely Anke!

Clear amber, stable, foamy, off-white head. Aroma of candied plum, golden raisin, dried orange peel, wet oak, vanilla, bourbon, pear, green apple. Taste has sweet plum, raisin & pear, hint of green apple, over a soft caramelly, brioche-like malt base, bit spicy. Herbal, slightly peppery hoppy finish, lingering caramel, dried fruit, woody bourbon alcohol & a whiff of vanilla. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Don't get the low score here, I thought this was a good unpretentious sipper.

7 October 2022. At Yard House, San Antonio. Shared with the lovely Anke!

Hazy yellow, thin, off-white head. Aroma of ripe banana, apple, nutmeg, clove, dough, honey. Taste has sweet banana & apple in a bready & honeyish malt body surrounded by spicy clove and wheaty notes. Floral hoppy finish, a tad peppery; lingering spices & yellow fruit. Medium body, slick texture, fizzy carbonation. Solid example of the style, nice!
