2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap half pint at Gilly's Beer & Fine Wine in Rockville, MD.
Opaque, dark orange-red brown with a small khaki head and good lacing.
Aroma of honey, flowers, heather, malt, sourdough and grassy hops.
Taste of sourdough, dark malt, fruit, honey, salvia (probably the heather) and sour Robitussin.
Medium/light body and low/medium carbonization.
I don't think this was supposed to be a sour beer, but it certainly is. However, the barkeep said that it has been that way since day one, which was an Oliver Tap Takeover event. So, if there is a quality control issue, it rests with the brewer.
