2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Orangish amber color with a nice creamy head. Aroma is carmel malt. Flavor is a fair amount of sweetish carmel malt with a moderately bitter hop presence. The hoppiness and malt dont balance well, each comes off as harsh, even though not overly strong. A fair bit of yeastiness and undertones of roasted nuts.
