Nodding Head 60 Shilling

The final beer I tried on my first visit to Nodding Head was the 60 Shilling thanks to the recommendation of Ethan (Brewniversal).  The beer pours a dark amber color with a bubbly white colored head.  The aroma consists of caramel, malts, grass, and pepper.  A slight malt funkiness also creeps in to the beer. The taste is smooth and sweet with plenty of caramel and sweet malts making up the profile of this beer. A dry grassy finish accompanies the beer and balances the sweetness rather nicely. The alcohol content is 4.75% ABV. I would have to say that Ethan was right in saying that the 60 Shilling was an excellent beer. A variety of flavors keeps the tongue busy, and all of them are tied well together.
