4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle courtesy of Alex420 - thank you! Part of a group tasting with the RB crew and staff at Birreria Paradiso Georgetown, thank you for volunteering! This was most people’s favorite of the night, certainly the best of the session beers. Although everyone liked the Nintendo labels, most pointed out that this dark purple label suggested something more like an imperial stout rather than a pale ale. Most people commented on the strawberry. marshmallow, perfume and other fruits in the aroma. All commented that the beer has a lot of flavor for a 4.5%er, with grapefruit and other citrus; one person found it too bitter. Very tasty.
