3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another inoffensive, drinkable, yet uninspiring bottled offering from this brewery - a fairly sturdy malt base sets up and earthy cascade flavor - high hop flavor, but low hop bitterness - some herbal, tea-like character - medium sweet - a little yeasty in the finish - peppery on the tail end - okay.
