2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can thanks to Andrew. Thanks for the Guatamala tick! Pours a light straw, crystal clear with a small white head. Nose of light malt and corn. Taste is pretty bland, really clean while cold. Shows a light straw flavor in the finish and a touch of acidity. Pretty boring but not as flawed as I was expecting.
