Mendocino Eye of the Hawk
I had previously had the Mendocino Bock and I saw the Eye of the Hawk on McGrath's bottle list, so I decided to give it a try. The beer is red-amber in color with a malty and caramel aroma. The taste is sweet and malty, with an undertone of caramel. The alcohol content is 8.0% ABV. I thought that the Eye of the Hawk was excellent overall. The caramel taste was sweet enough to make the beer enjoyable, but not overpowering to limit the consumption. I really like the beers that I have had from Mendocino so far, and I look to try a few more if possible. Upon my return to McGrath's, I ordered another bottle. Please note, it is that good.
