3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at brewpub. Very pale light yellow body, clear. Light bread aroma with a flavor that matches. Just enough bitterness to balance, but not any detectable hops. Maybe a hint of spice if you really go looking. Not bad, just sort of a session brew.
