2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the brewery, pours a medium copper with a slight bit of off-white head, fairly clear. In the nose there are notes of medium sweet caramel, a little citrus and a little bit of mint. Base malt does not come forward and is rather one-dimensional. Flavor is primarily caramel malt and very slightly nutty with a touch of astringency. Flavor profile is relatively clean with the exception of scotch-ale-like esters. It finishes with a bit of a distraction, a hard to define aftertaste although dry. Overall the flavors are a bit muddy.
