2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Does every Wisconsin brewpub have a honey ale? Clear pale yellow with the thinnest sheet of white for the head. Smells like opening the dishwasher one minute after the rinse cycle has completed, along with a few sweet honey undertones. Indistinguishable, tingly palate sweep. Thin, loose and watery. Lemon detergent acidity. A searing astringency of laundry power takes center stage and manifests most prominently in the aftertaste. Honey is more or less an afterthought.
