3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Phone rate, draught at Small Bar, listed at 5.2%. Clear pale gold, one finger white head, good retention. Mild aroma of pasta, light grassy hops. Flavor of sweet and toasted grain, a bit of pasta and grassy hops. More bitter than I prefer, peaking at a 6 in the dry finish. Doesn’t have the malt to back it up, perhaps? Wish there were more flavor and aroma hops. Low prickly carbonation with a light body. OK--had higher hopes for this.
