Cricket Hill Cricket's Nocturne
While in Philadelphia, I picked up a bottle of Cricket Hill Cricket's Nocturne. The beer has a dark amber color with a thin bubbly white head. The aroma consists of chocolate and malt. The taste is malty and smooth with a light chocolate hint and a faint oak flavor. I though that the beer was very delicious and smooth with a light carbonated bite on the back of the mouth and a very faint hint of hops. The alcohol content is not posted on the website, but I would assume it to be around 6.0% ABV. I really enjoyed the Cricket's Nocturne, and likened it to a cross-breed of Yuengling Lager and Smithwicks, both of which I really enjoy.
