3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty heady pour. Piney hops, heavy in the back of the throat but not a massive aroma. Ok balance but I like bigger flavor. It was ok. Ninkasi blows this one flat.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good balance between the malts (mainly crystal?) and the hops. Not too hoppy or malty. Doesn’t wow, but is nicely done and complex.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap and poured into a shaker. The aroma is a floral, orange, and toast combination. The color is hazy amber topped with a medium thin ring of soapy, dense head with thin puffs of surface. An above average lace is left behind. The taste is a medium high sweet medium bitter. The texture is a sticky oily quality with a medium full body and light fuzzy carbonation. Citrus, caramel, and toast come through on the crisp and dry finish. The aftertaste is toasty with notes of caramel and bread.
