3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
March 2013 - cold bottle. The first beer from this new brewery. I was badgered into buying it from the person at the shop, who said that it is very good. I agree that it’s not bad at all - mild and balanced. A little floral. In fairness, it’s quite nice.
