2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Darker pour, but not brown or black. Thin but rocky head. Just a good ol light beery aroma. Stronger bitter malt impact comes across like much more than 5%. Weird hop finsh grows more intimate as the session continues. Evolves into bitter citrus rind personality. Then becomes oily as it hits the back of the throat.
