2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
@Tass. Medium gold with tight head. Butter--ugh--on the nose. Soft, oily palate. Butter. Bitterness in the finish, but before that is all popcorn butter. The hops come out a little on the back of the tongue. Not so nice overall, because of the diacetyl.
