3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. loud pop of the cap with carbonation frothing up to the top. mostly clear amber colored body with a small off-white head. resin-bomb of a nose: pine needles, reduced orange caramel syrup, a bit of shallot / onion / urine, not something I find pleasant. medium body, creamy and soft carbonation. the malt is nicely creamy and soft but it’s impossible to enjoy given the brash, brutish bitterness and mold / moss / tea-leaf flavor that screams Chinook.
