3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the mixpack, broken up at trader joe’s. with permission of course. Pours is lightly cloudy orange with a thin white lace. Nose is light, clean, cereal malt, light coriander, carraway and salt coming through as it warms a bit. Flavor is okay--more cereal malt, some heavier creamy sweeter malt, some mineral, light coriander in the finish, but way too flabby and sweet for the style. No salt noted in the flavor. I appreciate the effort from Magic Hat and encourage them to continue in this direction.
