2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at restautant. Copper brown color, thin head. Very light malt aroma. Watery and thin palate overwhelms and ruins the beer.

Similar to many of their other beers. Seems to be the trend at Barley and Hops. A little malts and a little hops. Nothing distinguishing with only small variances on the quantities. Pretty gland spectrum.
