3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber colored pour with a white head. Lots of fruity esters on the nose, some sweet bread and toasted malt, and very light floral hops. A hint of spice and some apple. The flavor is bland and a bit watery. Some bread, mild toast, and very light hop character. No bitterness, mild floral notes, some fruit esters, and sort of just a bland sweetness to the beer overall.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
When you head into a bar with one hand-pull on, and it is this, you accept it. It looks good, but the faint hoppy aroma and watery taste make it one to avoid if you DO have a choice.

A good beer to have with curry, light malt taste with a slightly lemon aftertaste. At 5% it doesn’t taste this strong so be warned!
