toast crust nose, dusty banana esters. Flavor sweeter, honey strong with some pumpernickel bitterness in the finish. As much mild as amber, controlled sweetness again appreciated.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A very weird looking beer. It was a muddy amber color, like muddy Sedona red rocks mixed with regular mud and a fluffy off-white head atop the pitcher. The aroma was very faint, but the mouthfeel was very smooth. It was almost malted, milky in texture (but waterier).
The flavor was a little hap, a little bitter and a little caramel malty sweetness.
