3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a murky deep amber with bubbly white head that leaves decent lacing with each sip. Aroma is of clove, banana, a bit of citrus, rich sugary malt and grassy, clover-y hops. Flavor is heavy on the banana and clove which combine to produce a sort of bubble-gum flavor that is fairly common to the style. Grassy hops, rich sugary malt and light lemony citrus show up as well, and a dose of alcohol keeps it all nice and toasty. Tingly palate as it slides down the back of the throat with ease. Best beer in the house, narrowly edging out the pale ale.
