3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft on 01/11/13. Came to the table a reddish mahogany color with a skim of a beige head. The subtle aroma primarily featured some light touches of caramel, toffee, toasted grains, a little coffee, and the slightest hint of a citrusy tanginess way off in the background. Went down fairly thin-bodied. Caramel and toffee started things off taste-wise. There was a sizable biscuity dryness in the middle. The finish was crisp and only slightly bitter. Very sessionable, but the lack of alcohol presence really hurt the depth of this one.
