3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My Bottom Line:
Soft caramel and leafy bitterness coincide in the middle of fruity angles in this balanced Ordinary Bitter-like brew.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the clear amber.
-Carbonation is low, making the caramel flavors stand out even more.
-Flavor intensity is easygoing, as is to be expected from this type of beer.
-This might be quite authentic when naturally carbonated and on a handpump.
On tap at the Clybourn location.

A nice break from the over hopped, trendy IPAs that everyone is into nowadays. Good to have as honest Ale again.
