3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from PCC market in Fremont, WA. Pours dark amber with a foamy beige head. Mild malt aroma. Light body. Light carb. Light flavor. But good flavor. Pretty much a light dark malt brown ale kind of flavor. None of the usual earthiness of a brown, but a nice flavor. Goes down real easy. In some ways the flavor suggests stout. Don’t know where that came from.
