2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at the Seattle Taproom (Sea-Tac Airport) - 09/11/12.
Very lightly hazed mid amber with a thin off white head, lively carbonation evident (Great - Not!).
Nose is light caramel malt, touch of citrus, a little hoppage, a pretty muted nose all told.
Taste is caramel malt, some hop bitterness, a little candied sugar, citrus notes, light floral tones.
Medium bodied with prickly carbonation (badly done IPA!) leading to a bitter finish.
Below par stuff - not recommended.
