2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma: Quite flabby - smells like overripe apples. Quite earthy and tangy (almost sour).
Appearance: Clear golden body with a thick white cap. No visible carbonation. Excellent lacing.
Taste: Soft and fruity, certainly better than the aroma. Grassy with hints of boiled vegetables.
Palate: Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Flat carbonation.
Overall: An unusual beer, and not in a good way. It just doesn’t taste fresh and bright. I’e had better from Redwillow.
