3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle-conditioned 750ml, date unknown. early pour is mostly clear gold with a fine off-white head. mildly sweet honey / simple syrup sugar in the nose with a baked biscuit and just-toasted grain malt character and a soft, floral and soap-like yeast; dandelion and apricot esters with a mild touch of buttered bread. highly effervescent; medium sweetness; medium to heavy bitterness, especially late; medium prickly acid. mild flavor throughout, similar to the smell but with more of the buttered, baked biscuit malt and less of the apricot / floral yeast. there’s a sharp pineapple acidity that’s just metallic enough to suggest ethyl butyrate. overall a bit rough texture-wise, and a bit stale, but the nose is quite nice and improves as the beer warms and opens.
