3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is pale malt, herbal, touches of pepper, funk, and grassy. This also comes off as being a bit dusty. The flavor is bready malt, grass, mild fruits, light funk with some pepper toward the back. This changes a bit and becomes more dry and bitter as it warms. This just didn’t work for me like some of their other beers.
