3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
At first I’m trying to hit the aroma; perhaps peach? Then a slightly grain-like quality emerging and takes over; something I can’t recall experiencing with an ale before. Left me thinking of a blonde lager made with corn.
I was thinking peach on the flavour but it’s more floral, I’d guess. But mostly there are quite harsh, grassy hops with a lingering aftertaste. Not much finesse, really, but the overal effect isn’t bad. Quite refreshing and a bit interesting really.
I’ll give the appearance a 4; it only narrowly makes it but I like this beer too much to let it slide below 3. Besides I’ll be practically moving into the neighborhood and it’s not smart to get on bad terms with the local brewer, right?
