3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear light amber body with a small fizzy off-white head that had pretty decent retention. The nose is dry toasted malt with a light fruitiness and just a light hint of hops. The flavor is fairly dry, with a light chocolate malt note on the finish. A little dusty tasting late in the finish though, and there is an almost complete lack of hops. Light bodied and easy drinking with soft gentle carbonation. This is OK, and certainly drinkable, but there’s not a whole lot of character to it.
