3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
DeeP amber thin off-white head; not much aroma; Flava is nice and rich and complex blend of malt, slightly roasted and hops and alcohOl; feels ri ch with a nice biting fizz. Finishes long and dry some grassy notes.
Earlier Rating: 9/25/2012 Total Score: 3
Flava and finish is the strong suit. Which is good for drinking a beer. Hint of toasty nutty in aroma but nice and powerful in the Flava. Finishes slightly sweet yet bitter and dry.
