2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2014 Tap @ Bluegrass: Hazy orange & dark amber color, lazy beige collar sitting on top. Bready cracker aroma with an abundance of caramel malt that has a slight metallic note running through it. Toasty flavor, lots of stale caramel, bready yeast, & a good bit of DMS towards the finish. Slight earthiness, but hops are quiet. Malt doesn’t have much robustness, feels kind of thin all around. A little bit of dirty-ish, lingering bitterness in the finish. Just okay.
