3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours out a hazyish medium amber. Smells of caramel notes, pale malt, and a faint whiff of nuttiness all behind a leafy floral hop aroma. Smells bitter and sweet at the same time. Taste was big and hoppy up front, with bitter and leafy/floral tones making way for nutty caramel. Pretty ho-hum medium body. The potential was there for something great, but something was lacking, probably its body or its slight bitter imbalance. Finishes dry with leafy herbal bitterness coating the aftertaste. It’s a fine brew, tasty and all, but it’s missing spunk and balance.
