Jinx

12oz single from Total Wine, Kennesaw, GA, USA. May have been as high as $1.99 for the bottle.
Notched as being best before Jan ’09.
Wee Heavy???
Significantly more of an orange/amber body than the style would normally suggest. Decent head and some lace. Lacks the typical dark notes for the style.
Surprisingly, a fruity, light nose.
The tastes are really fruity and have a crisp note about them and a nice acidity. Sharp tasting, and a nicely balanced beer.
I really like this, but to call it a Scotch Ale/Wee Heavy is a stretch to say the least. It’s sweet, malty and above all fruity and to me it almost seems like a fruit beer. It has sufficient grapefruit bitterness in the finish to suggest that fruit, SPECIFICALLY!
Nice, odd, drinkable and tasty. Not sure what it is, but I like it!
