3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... RBSG 2014... Clear yellow pour with a huge, frothy, white head. Fantastic retention. The nose is faint, so I can only pick up some breadiness and spiciness. Full-bodied and milky with modest carbonation. The flavor is fairly sweet and boozy with undertones of clove spiciness and yeasty breadiness. Not my thing. Well-brewed though.
