3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In a tulip glass on tap at the Local Taphouse, St Kilda 15/3/13. Dark brown in colour verging on a porter in apperance with a thin cream/off white head. Some slight citrus notes from the hops combine with some big malt sweetness resulting in a raisin or even grape aroma. The cascade hops get drowned out by the sweetness in tasting, slightly thin mouthfeel. A little too sweet for my liking but not a bad example of an American style brown ale.
