2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22-Jan-08 (Draft: Kassik’s Kenai Brew Stop in Nikiski, AK) This is a good-looking beer: hazy, honey-amber color, capped by a half-inch off-white head that shows solid head retention. Unfortunately, the bashful nose is very light and nondiscript. Flavor is a bit more bold, offering flavors of lightly sweet caramel and very mild, gently bitter hops. Medium in body, but lacking any crispness, so this beer tends to sit on the palate after a few sips. A decent beer, but very simple. More hops would add much-needed balance and enhance drinkability.
