1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Big foamy pour from a bottle, liquid is very much like any pale ale, perhaps a tad darker. When lid was popped there was this clean fresh beery aroma. First taste is strong bitter something, its as if its trying to be orval but goe2 over the top in personality. Yes, does not hide its alky content too well. Now, with a second pour, I see there is plenty of sediment on the bottom of the bottle. That big head just stays put and goes rocky. Has that yeast effect that I have known east end to have. Quite coarse at times. Does have some fine creamy co2 in there. overall, much more personality than this lager lover can appreciate. Somewhat medicinal on the finsh. $2.75 at morinos in sylvania.
