4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice sharp grapefruit hops aroma translates superbly into the taste. Not sure why northwest hops should be used in a beer named ’olde yankee,’ but i’m definitely not complaining about the results. the bitterness stays on the palate and follows through in the aftertaste. Beautiful coppery beer with good head.
