3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy brown with orange edging and a fairly thick khaki head that settles to a thick ring and film, leaving some dripping webby lace. Nose involves oak and apple cider vinegar, a hint of brown sugar. Somewhat sweet, quite tart, a bit bitter. Light bodied, very active, cleansing drying tartness on the tongue, finishing fairly lengthy with oak tartness. Pretty decent, not a lot of complexity, but it’s mostly agreeable and somewhat versatile.
