Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark golden color with a small foamy white head that left no lacing. The aroma was sour mash and was fairly tangy with hints of golden fruits and citrus. The flavor was tangy with sour mash, mild bitterness, rough perfume and a grainy and almost cardboard note. Long finish. Light to medium body.
