  • Nose: The nose is malty, earthy, grassy, citrusy, floral, and slightly sweet.  There are aromas of caramel and doughy bread, light earthy aromas of pine resin and cedar as well as herbs and wild flowers, citrusy aromas of lemon zest, grapefruit, and tangerine, and summer grass.
  • Taste: Lots of toasted malt, earthiness, and citrus in this taste of this one.  There are notes of spicy herbs, fresh bread, light grapefruit, orange, tangerine, a hint of melon, pine, and more subtle notes of black tea, orange tea, light honey, and grassy hops.
  • Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation, the mouthfeel is crisp and dry with a slightly bitter finish.
Overall pairing: The very crushable and punchy flavors of Fisher's Hazard Pay is perfect for an evening of head banging intensity along with the power and might that is God Dethroned!  Those complex, yet very drinkable flavors demand your attention... as does "The World Ablaze"!  'Nuff said!
