bytemesis (2576) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Tap at the Birch. I am just going to have to accept the fact that, as awesome as Ben is, we just have different taste in beer :). Pours clear deep hazel-ruby with a medium but fast dissipating tan head and decent lacing. Aroma is caramel, floral notes, some wood. Flavor is the same, lightly sweet, light bitter, metallic, floral, just OFF in some way. Medium body.
