3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden pour with a white head. Nose is rather grainy. Some biscuit notes, floral hops, and sweet fruit esters of apple. Rather herbal, strangely enough. Tastes a bit too sweet. Lots of bread, grain, and biscuit. Apple esters, a light hop bitterness, and very strong herbal notes, almost like menthol.
