2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Redlight Redlight. Pours a clear reddish-amber color with a small, foamy, tan head that settles to a thin, patchy film. Micro-spot lacing dots the glass. Aromas are boozy for a relatively small beer, showing grainy alcohol notes of a base of pale cereal malts, toast, oregano, and an odd, briny sort of funk. Hints of pickles come to mind. Flavors again are grainy, in a alcoholic sort of way, with a strange, mildly tart funk, dusty yeast, and notes of sage and oregano. The palate is thin, bordering on watery, sporting moderate carbonation and a drying, boozy finish. Eh, I’m not impressed in the least bit with this one.

Draft at redlight redlight. Pours a dark amber with an off-white head. Fairly earthy nose. Hints of sticks and bubblegum. Strong notes of some kind of spice I’m having trouble identifying. Lots of malt in the flavor. Very dry on the palate. Interestingly complex.

Versa arancione scuro velato con una abbondante schiuma bianca.L’aroma è di latte e malto tostato e caramellato. Fruttato e leggermente speziato con luppolo. Speziato anche il sapore,asciutto,note fruttate. Secco e amaro nel finale. Più che discreta.
