2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap. Crisp is absolutely the wrong word for this. Pours with a clear, medium gold hued body with a white ring of foam. Aromas are sweet, sulfur, perfumey, floral, very sweet. Dryish apple character. Medium esters, a touch earthy. Light acid. Flavors are cloying apples, light pear flavor. Relatively clean yeast wise, but REALLY sweet. Some airfreshner notes. Artificial acid flavors that don’t really help the balance too much. Medium bubbles, syrupy sweet. Syrupy and soda like.
