Kind of a dark pour, amber in color with a white head. The nose is rather lemon forward and a bit herbal. Some earthy and piney hops as well as sweet toffee maltiness. The flavor is also heavy on the lemon. Some herbs, earth, and pine. Moderate bitterness, sweet bread, and toffee malt flavors. Kind of a let down, particularly considering that I’ve enjoyed a lot of Monkey Paw’s other beers.
