2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft... RBSG 2014... Pours lightly hazed and yellow with a slight, fizzy, white head. The nose is super restrained and really tough to pull anything from - maybe grain, fuzzy fruit, a spicy farmhouse phenol and pear? Medium to full-bodied with tickling carbonation. The flavor is grainy, lightly bitter and mildly acrid. Finishes crisp with a dash of buttery toffee. I don’t like golden ales, and neither should anyone else.

Really seemed to be more of just a basic blond ale. Odd choice for a special release, as it wasn't that special.
