3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle… Clear amber lager with a small creamy, white head. The nose mainly offers corn and ethanol with maybe a whisper of vanilla – smells like a cream ale. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and gentle carbonation. Even at room temperature, the flavor is sweet, but not cloyingly so. Bitterness is low, but it’s there. Grainy, creamy and pretty nice overall. Sweet, quickly fading finish. Bottle courtesy of hankchinaski!
