2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear, ruby-ish brown body with a small, beige head. Artificial cherry, almond and sweetish aromas and flavors. Quite sugary and sticky in the mouth. The cherry in the finish doesn’t feel as artificial as it does in the aroma and initial flavor. Sure not a favorite of mine, but quite good. And even though I’ve rated it way higher than the average Ratebeerian, I won’t buy it again. (071123)
