2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This draft brew from a beer festival poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a transparent uncarbonated dark orange colored body. The mild aroma was malt hop. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of malt mild hops and caramel. An OK brew just nothing special.
