2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep amber pour with very little head. Restrained aroma of earthy hops, grain, bread. Flavour falls flat initially with an oily mouth feel and average carbonation. Piney hops emerge mid palate with a lingering bitterness. Somewhat disappointing, especially since their IRA and CCS were so good.
