3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy, straw-colored beer with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Short-lived with no lacing.
The aroma is malty with huge notes of milk chocolate and cream. At the same time, it appears that there is a skunk in the area. It's down-wind, but present nonetheless. I'm not gonna deduct points for the critter as it is probably only present due to the lengthy and bumpy ride/flight from Harrisburg to my home. Grapefruit and evergreen also abound in the nose.
The flavor is very nice. Malty and rich up front (there's that damn skunk again), but balanced nicely on the backside with moderately bitter floral and citrus flavors. A tad pungent as well.
Light-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation.
A very long, dry, lightly bitter and acrid finish with more of that wonderful milk chocolate and caramel at the wee end.
Not world class, but certainly worth a try. I recommend you try one at the brewery as the bottles obviously don't travel or store very well.
