3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The color is a hazy mahogany color with a large off-white head, and the aroma combines scents of floral hops, caramel malts, and a hint of earthy yeast. The taste is slightly bitter, slightly sweet, and a touch sour, and the palate fuses a medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation, and a medium length finish that is an extension of the flavor.
