3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice white head... good lacing and retention.. the brew is very clear light orange. The nose is really weird for me... garlic chives come to mind immediately... garlic and onion.. nothing else to speak of... so very odd.
The garlic and onion notes come swinging again on the palate and are punctuated by some citrus zest... pale malts mid palate pull the hops up and out... but the finish is just long and lingering garlic.. The body and carbonation are near perfect.
