2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light brown colour. Aroma is mild. Taste has a caramel note first, maybe a touch of toastiness. There’s a bit of tartness in the finish that wasn’t evident at the brewery, but is in the can. That’s disappointing. Mild malts are about it, a basic brown.
