Chainsaw Ale

750 mL corked & caged bottle.
Cloudy and hazed mid-orange/brown body. Nice head, some sticky lace. The color and lack of clarity make this a somewhat unattractive beer. Looks a bit drab. Head and lace are better than the color.
Nose reveals a huge, brown sugar type aroma with only a slight, background like solvent alcohol note.
This is one sweet brew and with the combination of the hops I get an enormous mouthful of coconut. Quite a sickly sweet beer to me, and this is coming from someone that loves sweet brews. I think the problem for me is that this doesn’t seem to have sweetness from malts, rather from just pure under fermented sugars. As a result, this is pretty slick and sticky in the mouth.
Truth be known I didn’t care for this much and in addition I don’t think that is a very good beer at all.
