2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma: Malts are on the toasty side, and most of the show; maybe a touch of noble hop character. Appearance: Solid amber body with bubbly tan head. Flavor: Mostly toasted malts with an undercurrent of noble hops; the drive to the finish is more bitter than anticipated, but eventually terminates into a lingering, light sweetness. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, bittersweet finish. Overall: Didn’t really blow me away in any respect; a fine beer brewed to style.
