3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
On cask at the Bayou. Pours a cloudy amber/orange color with almost no head. A thin palate overall, not the lighter carb you’d expect from a cask, but just very little carbonation or body. A rich nose of pine, some fruit and light hops. The flavor is very well done: balanced juniper, some distinct orange peel, earthy, a bit of bitterness. Interesting. Herbal, drinks like a traditional ale from Scandinavia. With a better body it would be great.
