Weyerbacher Brewing Company in Easton, Pennsylvania. I know you've been long time readers, but as a reminder, Easton is where my father grew up and where I spent a significant amount of time for the first 30 years of my life. Ah, the Christmas Eves at Porter's Pub! If I didn't live in crappy Florida, I'd still visit my Aunt and Uncle there more frequently. Anyway, originally reviewed 16 months ago, I barely remembered the name, so here we go again.
Citrus, hoppy, lightly toasty and bitter aroma. A fleeting glance of caramel, bread and malty flavors start things off. Those are immediately pushed aside by strong citrus and bitter lemon rinds. The two opposites didn't really mesh very well, rather just duked it out on the front yard. Did I mention there was plenty of lemon? Some spicy components along with the 6.2% alcohol make an appearance. The alcohol further severely dries out the finish and provides a little burn, not unwelcome but slightly harsh. The end also shows some medicinal flavors mixed with more lemon rind, a bit of a turn off. Decent all around for sure, but not great.
