2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear golden with a light dissipating, though sticky head. Nose oddly has some rosemary or thyme, and a little pepper. Flavor is the same though a little stronger on the pepper. Basically a basic slightly hoppy blonde ale with pepper and a little thyme. Not worth a pint.

Sample at the tap room. Pale yellow-gold color with a thin bone white head that burns away gradually. Stringy lacing on the glass. Floral hops, spice and malt in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, coriander and toasted malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.
