Heavy Seas Small Craft Warning

This beer comes by way of King Bob, who is also doing this 365 American craft beers in 365 days craziness. I have been impressed with the selection of beverages that we exchanged. Small Craft Warning continues the trend. Small Craft Warning is brewed up by Clipper City Brewing Company.

A sub name of the beer is Über Pils as it is an American Imperial Pilsner. Bread malt, citrus, and lemon grass come through in the nose and taste – they are actually about the only things that come through. There isn’t an alcohol tinge at all, which really helps the drinkability.

The funny thing about last night was that I wasn’t really looking forward to a beer as it was later in the evening when I had a chance to imbibe. I always like the pleasant surprises of an off evening being rewarded with an American craft beer that delivers past my expectations. Enjoy!

Aroma: 8, Taste: 8, Look: 9, Drinkability: 8, Overall: 8.2

Useless Fact: The housefly hums, middle octave, key of F.
