3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a nice, ruddy color with a slight haze. Solid, rocky head of off white foam. Nice retention. The nose has a rich, malty aroma. Nice notes of bread with slight perfumed citrus. Full flavored without being thick or cloying. Nice caramel, toasted malt, and bready notes with a little citrus bitterness on the back end. Very solid for the style and very enjoyable to drink. Recommended.
