Heavy Seas Beer Cross Bones

“Citrus fruit and pine hops flavor. Light malty, grainy flavor in the background. Oranges, grapefruit, and grass. Slight biscuity notes. Pleasant tart bitterness, then the butterscotch barrels in. Reminds me of the old days with Red Hook or Bert Grant’s beers. The diacetyl softens the palate, but is an acquired taste. The base beer seems good.”
