Hale’s Ales Rudyard’s Rare Barleywine Style Ale

Another brew from a PNW long timer, Hale’s Ales out of Seattle.  We were on a bit of a barleywine kick, so this Rudyard’s Rare fit right in. 

As far as the tasting goes… this wasn’t a spectacular brew… from start to finish it was kind of just off… just a little.  The head was probably the best part… nice, cream colored and foamy.  The aroma was barely there, though… two votes of the tasters for fruity but I couldn’t hit it.  The taste was off just a little bit with some slight astringency in the finish.  The ABV is there for you, but maybe a little to strong.  Overall not super impressive… one I really won’t be looking for again.
