3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Faint nose of malt and grains, clear brown-amber color, low creamy head. Medium body of caramelly malt with a dry toasted, woody end that interrupts the sweetness and creates a two-staged profile. A little rough around the edges, but in a good way. Nice surprise, this one, and a decent beer.
