frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2008
2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber with a vermillion tint. An ecru head is short and unlasting. Grainy aroma with roasted nuts, faint, stale caramel and adjuncty touches of wet dog and street bum. Grainy flavor with a mild malted sweetnes and an earthen bitterness to finish. A little flat in the mouth, but a spritz of carbo adds a tingle to the finish. Alcohol creeps. Drinkable, but it could stand to be a little fuller-bodied. And sweeter.
