2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Waitrose in East Cowes. Pours out in a light amber colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of barley and light malt. Taste of old malt, light barley, mild hops, old bread and sour berries. Just a very unpleasant and untasty mixture. Unbalanced. Not that bad, but quite awful stuff.

Botle shared with McTapps. Highly drinkable piwo with a nice viena nose of nuts, caramel, bit of sugar and bread. Quaffy and mild with a bit of herbs in the aftertaste. Syrup finishing it off. Good and classic brew without being rocket science.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle. I was excited to try this one from Stevens Point Brewery, wasn’t very good. All of their beers have well-balanced and had the proper care, this just wasn’t very good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the pour I got a clear reddish amber body with a small creamy off white head. This small head fades to a very thin layer of foam that disappears about half way down the glass. On the way it makes some slick lacing. The aroma light overall and has a thin maltiness with light hops and a slight metallic presence. The flavor matches the aroma with a light/thin body. A simple (but not off putting in any) mild maltiness gives way to a thin herbal hop fading finish. Its light on the palate add side down easily.
