3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange/copper pour. Aromas of some biscuit notes with citrus hops. A bit strange. Flavor is similar. The biscuit character conflicts with the citrus hoppy notes.

33 cl bottle
Pours hazy amber color with a large head. Aroma of grassy hops, some citric fruits, mandarin, pine and caramel. Flavor of biscuits, caramel malts, a bit stuffy hops and sweetish fruits. Strong carbonation, too biscuity and earthy flavor. Usually I don’t like Mt. Hood that much but this was decent.
