3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the Marriott Mag Mile. The Marriott have made beer from the beehives on its rooftop since 2008, including with Half Acre, so it’s interesting no one on RB has been able to catch up to it until now. Light amber color with a thin edge of foam around the perimeter. Smell has just the "edge" of mild sweet honey… but not too sweet. More recognizable trace of honey on the palate. Very light spicy dryness from the wheat malt. The alcohol is a bit warming, so just above the "sessionable" range. When I finished it, I got an aftertaste that said "honey," but not "sweet." Tasted during my panels on Beer Culture at the Popular Culture Association Conference at the Marriott in April.
