FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2013 Sampled on draft at the Headkeeper this beer poured a medium toffee color with a small foamy orange-white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was spicy with notes of pepper, nutmeg and clove. The flavor was toffee, a bit of nut, dry spices - nutmeg, clove and pepper - was a bit watery with a touch of maltiness. Short spicy finish. Thin and watery body. No citric presence at all. Disappointing.
