3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Bierkraft’s ballast point tasting. So sour! This drinks more like a cocktail to me than a beer: fruity, light on carbonation and a pretty reddish color. In fact, after I made the mental adjustment to "cocktail" and not "beer" I enjoyed it more.
