2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Bocktown Robinson. Meh...probably on par with what I expected. Aroma was caramel with just a hint of stale malt.Pour was a light brown with a one finger off white head. Taste was a little disappointing. The roasted caramel malt was the main flavor with a slight vinegary aftertaste. Mouth feel was very thin and there was barely any finish. Light carbonation.
