2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the bottle pours a lightly hazy, dusky orange-amber colored body with a small, foamy, cream colored head. The thin but lasting froth leaves sticky splotches and flares of lacing on the glass. Aromas are big on sweet candy sugar malt, caramel, and bready yeast. Traces of light funk and must reside in the background, as do hints of spoiled apple, while light floral hops add some peppery spice. Flavors are mostly sweet, blonde candy sugar dominating, with caramel and bread pudding notes. Faint hop bitterness and light peppercorn notes do little to balance things, and musty, fermented fruit notes lend an odd, tart twang. Medium-plus bodied, sticky, and sugary, the palate does not please, and it sits heavy in the stomach. Eh, not really my kind of brew.
