Pretty Things Grampus

The Pretty Things Beer and Ale Project originated in Somerville, Massachusetts.  They don't have their own brewery, and currently brew their beers at Buzzard's Bay Brewing in Westport, Massachusetts. This is a 10.5% ABV hoppy double mash golden ale. 

The beer pours a deep amber and copper in color. There is an inch of thick, creamy, tan head that is long lasting and leaves rings of lacing down the glass. The aroma is sweet, fruity and malty, dried apricots and yellow raisins, nearing sweet potato. It is tangy, yet sweet, an oak-like note in there too. The taste follows the aromas, sweet, yet tangy, very fruity, even more so than in the aromas, but with a dry, moderately bitter finish with a woody astringency. It drinks full-bodied, smooth, with a subtle, tingling carbonation. Over time the effect turns to that of a lightly candied grapefruit slice.
