3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
3/30/09 On draft at the brewery, Seattle, Wa. Aroma is a lightly seet roast malt forward with a faint, but complimentary hop sourness. Appearance is a hazy copper with a well maintained cream colored head. Flavor is creamy sweet caramel malt forward with medium earthy bittering. Mouthfeel is creamy, full bodied, with a medium carb texture. Overall, quite heavy for the style, but the sweetness offsets it nicely.
