3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear gold with a thick foamy head that leaves a lot of lace. Lots of pleasant biscuit aromas with an earthy pale grain background. Taste was a little weird, almost like smoked pale grains with a lot of earthy biscuit. Wasn’t too keen on it.
