3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub, a hazy amer with a creamy white head. A strong hoppy aroma with pepper and cloves, and some metalicness. The palate is dry and hoppy, as you would expect. But it is more creamy in the middle, with a peppery spiciness. In the finish it brings a wine gum sweetness.
