2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Disappointing ale. Nice and creamy with a distinct and pleasant taste at first but slightly chemically and a little sickening if you have a second.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours copper, white head. Caramel, dusty malt, a bit of that berry hop from the EKG or whatever. Flavour is bread, a bit of berry and even some roast. This threw me off because it seemed fairly bright and dusty at the same time and I’ve always considered those mutually exclusive. Alright.
