3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The bar keeper was nice enough to give me samples of both the regular draft, and the nitro version. The nitro LSD had a strange vinegar and yogurt nose. The flavor was drained and unpleasant, but the regular LSD was quite the opposite. Hard fruit, and roasted malt aroma. Nice and inviting. Hard fruit, lightly smoked, with just a touch of chocolate. Hints of alcohol and complexities. This brew is almost like a fusion of scottish ale and IPA. Not a bad beer, just skip the nitro LSD.
