3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled Small frothy off-white head that fell to thin layer after 5 minutes; hazy medium amber color. Aroma was of caramel malt with some fruitiness and a bit of diacetyl. Flavor started nicely with a very present off-dry caramel malt character. Woodiness emerged mid-palate layered with some fruitiness and a hint of butterscotch (diacetyl). Finished with a yeasty-breadiness that lasted into the aftertaste. An interesting, pleasant wine-like astringency was evident throughout. Medium bodied with spritzy carbonation and a drying astringency. A most interesting special bitter. Along with the typical caramel malt aroma and flavor was a pleasant vinous character: a fine acidity with a drying astringency. This wine-like character combined with the nice bitter/sweet balance made for a good session ale that held my palate’s attention. It would be nice to try this on handpump.
