2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bright copper with a moderate, even foam. Relatively weak aroma is a bit toasty, grainy. Slightly watery, minor diacetyl, and light toastiness. Finishes kind of quick. It’s thin, but there’s enough dark malt complexity to make is passable.
