3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. This pours clear cola colored red brown. A three finger head has good retention. Nice lacing. In the aroma I get wheat, toffee, and yeast. This tastes of bready yeast at the first sip. Some light fruit and nice wheat flavors. A bit of hop notes add fruit and some bitterness. Malt is toffee and some brown sugar. Alcohol is not tasted and despite the 8% ABV, this is fairly light drinking.
