Off The Rail Sweet Leaf Amber

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
While wandering around Portland and sampling its many beers, I heard of a Forest Grove brewery called Off The Rail Brewing, whose beers were inspired by the music of Black Sabbath.  "I am intrigued," I said to my drinking partner, Dirt Rivers, "so we shall drink their beer."  And indeed, we had a couple of pints of their amber ale, Sweet Leaf.  We were quite pleased.

It poured from the tap a cloudy, deep amber with a thick off-white head with nice retention and thick lacing.  On the nose, it had a malty sweetness.  Dirt thought long and hard before declaring, "It smells like beer!"

And beer it was!  We thirstily consumed this very pleasant beer, which had a mellow but thick mouth feel.  It was sweet, but not overpowering, and has a muted and pleasant hop note.  I would certainly have this beer again, and would likewise recommend that all of you readers hunt it down, as well.
