2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from the legendary Kris Wines. Deep brown color with a medium off-white head. The nose is malty caramel, harvest fruit, nuts. The taste is light sweet maltiness, simple and pretty much what the nose suggests. The finish is lightly bitter. Oxidized. The body is light medium. Carbonation quite active. Overall, not great. A bit boring, the oxidization doesn’t help either. Bottle not finished.

Bottle. Mahogany body is clear with a fluffy, large, tan head on top. Leaves a thin bubbly ring with fair lacing. Lightly toasty, malty aroma. Bready, biscuity flavor with a hint of toffee and floral hops. Medium-light body borders on thin. Sweetness balanced by a firm bitterness. Medium carbonation and somewhat minerally. Lingering bitterness. Pretty good Alt.
