3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
hazy gold, large bubbled white ring, oily otherwise. Dirty ester and bubblegum nose, paper and light pepper. Farm with warmth. Map ritzy flavor is earthy but peppery, carbonation dialed too high to be sessionable, thick and sticky despite low abv. Bitterness and sting with warmth is nice, somewhat redeeming and DuPont esque. Improves with warmth.
