2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is malty, hoppy, and slightly yeasty. There are notes of biscuits, corn, flowers, soap, and cake. The appearance is golden with a large head. The taste is pretty simple with just bitter hops and bread like malt. The palate is average. Overall a pretty good beer but not wonderful.
