Old Horizontal from the Victory Brewing Company of southeast Pennsylvania is an 10.5% ale which is really a concentrate of pale ale. Medium-dark amber with maybe a garnet tinge under a faint rim, it has a strong whisky-orange aroma. In the mouth the beer opens through a ten second unfolding that ends in heat down the throat, after rich deep malt, orange hop, then spice and then green chewy hop. Really rather lovely late of an evening. All but 1% of BAers like a lot.
It leaves a spicy, orange zest and green hop sensation on the lips long after the sip. Nice.
