This poured a semi murky lighter brown color with a white head. Aroma was of light brown sugar, peated malt, and caramel. Flavor was similar, somewhat watery and bland but a perfect example of the style.

Pint at The Globe. Pours an amber with a small 1cm white head. Aroma is of cow corn mash and cow corn grain from my uncle’s dairy farm. Start is very acidic with more of that corn mash taste. Finish is more astringent. Watery and over carbonated.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a copper color with a foamy white head. Skunky aroma at first pour. Burnt hop scent lingers a bit then fades, followed by a sweet malt and caramel aroma as it warms. Taste is loaded with caramel, toffee, slight skunkiness, and burnt grains. Nice malty feel with a very subtle bitterness. Would be a great session beer. Very enjoyable and refreshing.
