3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
RLB YEHA 05. Pours a clear light amber with a nice lasting head. Aroma is slightly stale with some oxidation, but then has some light crystal or munich malts and pretty much no hops. Moderately sweet taste with lots of caramel but has a bit of a metallic finish and an overall lighter body than I expected.

Bottle. Ruby brown beer with a hige light beige head. Somewhat sour, fruity (summer) and malt aroma. Malty flavor with lots of yeast and a bit of sourness to it. Not bad, but nothing stands out.

Bottle thanks to Joeec5 at RLB’s YEHA ’05. Hazy dark amber color with a medium sized off white head. Fruity, yeasty aroma with lots of caramel malt. Flavor of baked bread, caramel with a little spice. Heavy carbonation takes a little away from the mouthfeel.
