Beer #174 - Life and Limb, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company & Dogfish Head Brewing Company

Beer. Sometimes, the attempt to take notes after having a few beers gets a little tricky. My handwriting is already a bit dodgy, but at time downright illegible. In the case the notes for Life and Limb, it seems to lean toward the illegible, cut I'll give it a shot....
The beer is a collaboration between Dogfish Head and Sierra Nevada and features birch syrup in the brew. Let's pour!
It pours opaque with a thin head.

The aroma is malty with vanilla and pronounced maple.

It has a full-body, with birch and maple evident. There is sweetness, but the malt tends to curb it from being too dominant on the palate. It has low carbonation and finishes with a nice toasted malt. A few more lines and something about the hop that I can't quite read!

It finishes clean with maple and toasted flavors lingering nicely on the tongue.

I'll attempt to be a little more responsible next time and BLOG before BEER!
