Inlet "Monk in the Trunk"
Inlet Brewing Company - Jupiter, Florida USA
Organic Amber Ale (ABV 5.5%)

[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]


Rating: 3.1/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 12/20

It poured a clear medium amber with an average (1-2 finger) off white creamy head that offered up great retention, finally reducing to a long lasting thin cap and had excellent sheets of lacing.

The aroma was extremely mild of a light grain malt, mild herbal hops and a light earthy yeast with notes of caramel, a bit of spice and a light fruity ester.

The taste was very different from the aroma. It was bold, very malty and a tad sweet with a big note of caramel that lasted throughout, with the finish having a mild fruitiness and a small bite of spiciness towards the end. The flavor hung around for a decent amount of time proceeding the swallow, with a nice sweet malty taste that was left to linger on the taste buds for a while longer.

Mouthfeel was just under medium in body with a creamy yet mildly dry texture and a soft carbonation.

Overall I was rather taken by surprise with this very impressive organic Amber Ale. It possessed a ton of flavor and an awesome drinkability. This is most likely is the best organic beer I have tasted to date...
