2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes. On tap at the DC location.
Pours a moderate copper color with a light white head and not too much lacing. The nose is some slight bread with a bit of sweetness. Mild caramel notes. The taste isn’t really much other than a bit of light bread. Light to medium body with good carbonation. No faults, but pretty plain and unremarkable.
Serving type: on-tap

Malty, with a stale/old/sour flavor. Tastes like old beer. Given the volume at the brew pub, age doesn’t explain it.
