3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Regional Food and Drink, DC tap ($6.50): Pours a murky light brown color with a similar head. Aroma is mostly malty, but in a very good way. Body of the beer is the real upside. It has a really soft mouth feel, so the beer goes down very easily; however, there is nothing lacking in the taste of this beer either. Really nice full malty flavour throughout with a kiss of hops. A very well crafted brew.
