3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Dirty straw, deep, dark, and hazy, large rocky white head, nice lacing.   Bretty nose,
bright, tart, and also woody.   Smells pretty damn good!   A little sweet up front, minor chalk, just a minor
tart twang, with wooden aspects bringing up the rear.   Can’t really tell that it is a Pale Ale, but with the wood
(Oak) and what that I can only assume is Bret, a Pale Ale other than a NW Pale Ale would hardly be noticable.
The balance between the tartness, sweetness, and the Oak is rather pleasing.   This is a pleasure to drink.
Not real big on the backside, but its clean.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Only thing I would say is it
could be a little heavier and have a bit more umph on the backside.   It his however fairly tasty and well
balanced.   Thanks Kevin!
