3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours with a light white head, but the pour was deliberately unheady. Clear ruby color in the light. Some hop aroma, kind of piny. Flavor is pretty bitter and spicy. It’s quite dry. The spice is nice, but it’s a little one note. Also a big beer. Can taste a tiny bit of alcohol warmth. Little bitter aftertaste.

This beer was very mild it was smoothe even though the beer lacked the hop flavor needed to give it that full flavor.

The aroma is malt forward while the pour is a Texas tea brown with a one finger off-white head and abundant lacing. The taste follows the nose - toasted malts, caramel and nuts. A slight bitter finish. Overall, a nice nutty brew.
