3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, a little more chilled than cellar but not cold. Smells all kinds of wonderful, but deceptively so. I think I’m smelling a darker beer. Pours pale yellow with a thin head that dissipates quickly. A little carbonated for my taste, covering up what could be a complex taste, but mostly finishes bitter. It looks like a cheap beer, smells like a great beer, and the taste is somewhere in the middle
