2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at the brewery. Clear dark golden with a thin cap head. Earthy aroma with some musty toffee and something that’s like dried bell pepper. Taste is equally earthy and malty, with some toasted biscuits and earthy toffee surrounding a slightly vegetal but somewhat sweet-peppery hop presence. Weird an confusing, but at least it’s balanced.
