2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
355mL. Pours a clearish, deep toffee amber. Larger, rocky, buttermilk foam. Excellent retention and webby, loose lacing. Nose is vanilla, stale candies, old caramel/Halloween candies, something like pickles (?). Just old, past prime smelling. Taste is stale lemon drops, lemon soap, lemon acid, very harsh acidity and acrid, astringent bitterness. Lemon tea throughout and big tannic, palate destroying puckering from the lemon bitterness. Ick.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Thin light khaki head. Clear orange color. Decent lace. Thicker, stronger carbonation keeps this from being too drinkable. Light bitter, kind of toasted taste. Some hops, but more resiny malts. It’s light, and has decent flavor, but I wouldn’t pick it for a session (I wouldn’t want to drink two of these in a row). Also, 5.6% is a bit high for a "session ale"
