3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on draft.
Mostly clear amber-brown pour with a small off-white head sitting atop the beer.
The aroma lacks the funk I associate with McKenzie beers (as it should, being a non-wild beer as far as I know). Caramel malts, spice, and slight Belgian yeast present.
The flavor is nice. Caramel, nuts, spice, and earth, mildly sweet with a considerable Belgian yeast presence.
Medium-bodied with average carbonation and a slight dryness on the palate.
Tasty beer overall, good for the style.
