2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Poured a copper color ale with a small foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma of woody notes with some grilled corn notes with light bourbon and vanilla notes. Taste is a weird mix of grilled corn, vanilla, bourbon with a bitter and astringent finish which is not the most pleasant. Body is light for style with medium carbonation and light warming alcohol. Unbalanced with too much corn notes coming through with also too much astringency for the style.
