I will not bow to a Monkey King, but I will gladly sip this on a fall afternoon, with 'Monkey' from the 'Stones on the Box, a little louder than the neighbors would allow. I think this beer might actually be better if I let it warm up a bit. It seems like the flavors want to mix up and blossom, but it's gone now. No more monkey-shines with this little guy.
