Nimbus Brewing – Nimbus Old Monkey Shine – 12 oz. bottle poured into a goblet. 8.2% abv. Purchased at Total Wine in Phoenix, AZ
Appearance: Pours a midnight ruby with a khaki pin stripe.
Aroma: Apples and red apple skin and alcohol.
Taste: Red apple skins, finishes with bitter hops.
Mouthfeel: Watery, big time.
Overall: A lousy beer. I’m hoping it was a bad bottle, and not what the beer was supposed to be. Also, maybe I’m sensitive, but the bottle with the monkey squashing a water melon was a bit bizarre to me.
