2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled: Golden coloured. Off white medium sized head. Hoppy and malty aroma. Not as distinct as I like it. Flavour is a bit watery and bland. Dies quickly on the palate. This isn’t the most interesting american beer, but nevertheless its my no. 100 american. Thanks Jacob and Martin for sharing.
