2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Frisco. Pours clear amber with a small, frothy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is cookie and honey malt, fruity esters if pear and apple, pine and citrus hops. Flavor is sweet malt, moderate hops and carbonation with pear esters and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation. A little too sweet for my tastes.
