3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Three Penny Taproom - Poured a clear light straw yellow in color with a small bubbly head that disappeared quickly. Aroma is strong of both apples and honey, as you expect. along with the tiniest bit of "funk". Flavor is medium sweet and, again the honey and apples dominate. Not much evidence of the considerable ABV. Very nice!
