2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at Moosejaw. Poured medium iced tea brown with very little head. The aroma was soft with fruits, honey, and molasses leading.. some berries on the back. The flavor found sweet berries and other fruits along with molasses and caramel.. light fruity bitterness surrounded.. odd for an amber. Light-medium bodied with almost no perceptible carbonation on the palate.. not so good.
