3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: Can from State Line Liquors. It pours a medium brown with a decent light tan head. The nose is straight foward. There is a good bit of roasted nuts and a little earthy note. The flavor is text book nut brown with a light roast, good bit of nuttiness, a little earthy bitterness. Overall very drinkable and a good session brew.
