2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampler at Brewers Rendezvous. pours a fluffy white, well retained white head over a hazy, yellow (SRM 3) body......nose is sweet malts with light spice.....taste is light malts, hints of sweetness, finishing with a light bitterness.....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation low. This seemed unbalanced, with malt sweetness dominating the hop bitterness. Other complexity in aroma and flavor were hidden as a consequence. BJCP 6/3/10/4/5
