3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Global Brew. Pours a clear pale amber with a modest off white head. Aroma is hops and malt. Taste up front is clearly in the alt style with sweet caramel malt, but then the hops kick in which is stylistically too dominant and more like an IPA. Good, but not traditional.
