3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber colored with a lot of floating particles. Malt aroma has some cherry and plum notes, mostly an old grain smell. Thick, malty, sweet red ale type texture and flavor... there are definitly some nut flavors hidden beneath the semi-sweet, oily cedar flavors. Buttered nuts, perhaps is more accurate. Light cedar and toffee hop finish, marginal bitterness. I prefer an APA to contain more citrus flavors and be a little more hopped, but this try is not that bad. Drinkable and tasty.
