jackl (7063) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Cask @ GBBF ’12. Pours deep amber with no head. The nose is sweet caramel, some light cherry sweetness and light herbs. The taste is cherry, woody caramel, and some lightly floral grass. Medium body, soft. This just felt a bit flat and 2-dimensional. Not my thing.
