4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice lightly smoked brown ale. Pours dark mahogany without much head or lacing. Some light caramel and resin, and only a hint of smoke. Barrel is light as well here. This is all very well-balanced but it lacks in overall body and palate. Light bitter finish. Tap at Pizzeria Paradiso Georgetown.
