3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Firkin Friday at Bowie location. Arrived at the table a slightly hazy amber with no head. Maraschino cherries, vanilla extract, slight caramel, and some grains in the aroma. Goes down on the thin side. Tastes as it smells - sweet/tangy maraschino cherries upfront followed by a burning punch of vanilla extract. Finishes grainy and fairly crisp. Alcohol is quite noticeable throughout.
