2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap @ 4 Hands Anniversary Party. Pours a cloudy, dark reddish orange appearance with a cream colored .head. I got some veggie like notes in the aroma and flavor that I didn’t like, so I wnnder if there was a bit of DMS present. Also some caramel and chewy herbal hops in the nose and a caramel, toasty malty, a touch fruity flavor. I really couldn’t get past what I think was DMS.
