3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear amber body, fluffy tan head, aroma is rich barley and soft floral hops, flavor is deep caramel, upfront bitters without much hop flavor, bitters all the way through to the end of this swig, finishes dry, I think this is a great example of an american strong ale one of the best I’ve had in a while.
