2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear amber, with small tan head. Diacetyl aroma is off-putting but there is some nuttiness beneath. Soft carbonation. Major butter bomb and way too sweet too. Nutty, and has either seen better days or is not living up to its potential.

Nice, nutty, hoppy aroma. Superb, rich brown-red with creamy head. Lightly sweet, nutty, well-hopped. Good mouth, but goes a little flat. Quick woody, medium hoppy finish.
