2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed from notes.
Pours a moderate brown color with an off white head and a small amount of lacing. The nose is a moderate amount of malt plus some small notes of toffee and caramel. A bit of light nutty character. The taste is moderately malty without too much going on. The feel is fairly light with nice balance. Drinks fairly well, but is fairly ordinary.
