3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Great slightly hazy and honey tinted light amber coloured body with a one centimetre tall tan head. Very mild aroma of grass, honey, malt and a bunch of floral notes! Full-bodied; Very rich flavour of honey, grass, hay, malt, oak, flowers and a lot of spices noticeable on the finish. Aftertaste shows a subdued earthy flavour, but a well refined sweetness from honey and toffee. Overall, a nice and smooth herbal flavour to go with tall the honey! Great to sample here at Whole Foods for only US$3,50! I sampled this full pint on draught at Whole Foods in Falls Church (Tyson’s Corner) on 01-May-2014 for US$3,50.
