The second Pretty Thing in a week. A quadruple ale with dried plums. Hmm. Where I come from that's a prune. And what better beer to have of Rrrrrrrrobbie Burrrrrrns than one with prunes - "the beerrrrrr that gud fir yir bowellllls." So, maybe I shouldn't quit my job and go into marketing.
I picked this up for $6.99 or $6.49 at C's Farm Market at Owsego or Liverpool's Galeville Grocery. I really didn't keep track. It pours a medium oranged brown with a fine film and rim of cream. There isn't a strong aroma but what there is has brown sugar, booze and a slight menthol note. In the mouth, plummy pumpernickel maltiness framed by that same light menthol hop presence. Apple butter. A nice citrus acidity up top with a deep small seam of smoke down at the bottom.
