3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Pony with Andy/James. Pours amber into 8oz glass. Aroma is thin and kind of zesty - almost reminds me of a porter for some reason. Nice taste - zesty, sweet, almost fruity. A little boozy but not that much, or not as much as I’d expect for the style. High carbonation livens up all of the flavors.
