Oliphant Ant Ray Cow Pants

Oliphant Ant Ray Cow Pants. Red Ale with ginger, lime and curry. 7.4% ABV. Oliphant Brewing, Somerset, WI.

Brown coloration, large and lasting creamy off-white head, looking great.

Aroma: sweet, creamy, curry. Little bit of lime, some fruit, some sort of perfect. Light spice, lots of sweet, major malt, absolutely incredible.

In the mouth: Just as scrumptious as promised by the nose. Mostly malty, and full of the ginger, lime, and spices. Wonderful blend. Medium-bodied. Easy drinking, and incredibly delicious. With each new taste, I like it more and more, again and again. Just delicious. Mmmm.

An earlier chalkboard illustration re-uses the robotic
Scratchy head that was probably used for either
Bort or Also Bort, and, I think, embellished with
elements from Hindu gods...or something. Is that
an ant on top of Hindu robot Scratchy's head?
Ant Ray Cow Pants. What does it mean? (Sounds like a Captain Beefheart song.) I seem to recall asking Matt about it, but I can't recall his reply.) Where does it come from? Who really cares? Me, I just like how damned tasty it is. Just ...oh, I said that. Caramel malt, toffee-ish. so
At my last visit to the brewery, ARCP is
illustrated with a twist on the Marvel Movie
version of Ant-Man as played by
Paul Rudd. All chalkboard artwork by
Jeremy Hughes. delicious. Ant. Ray. Cow. Pants. Mmm, mmm, yeah.
