3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Naked City. Pours a clear honey golden with even tight eggshell white head and ghost shadow lacing. Faint nose for sure. Spiced (nutmeg, cardamon), light doughy malt and banana esters with some pumpkin/squash notes. Tight carbonation and medium light feel. Light esters with mellow apple notes, balanced spice with complimentary doughy malt. Well made spiced beer that doesn’t show the 8.8 at all.
