3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
September 2016 - Bottle share at One Canada Square. As ’Greenbush Brother Benjamin’, 10.1%. Thanks LKS! Orange brown, hazy and still, foamy tan head leaves dotted lacing. Aroma is floral, chalky, touch of TCP, boiled sweets. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is sugar syrup, boiled sweets, more sugary than malty, pine and resinous hops, some tangy booze. Quite sweet. Alright for a booze and sugar bomb. (3.0)
