3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Clear amber brown color, beige head that drops to a solid cover, Taste is full-bodied caramel malt that moves through a lightly fizzed swallow, then turns toward bitter-sweet caramel to achieve balance. A sweet breww overall, but very well done.
