2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
[Saxon 4.1] Poured a dark golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasty dough, maybe some toffee, and light citrus. Clean, crisp taste of more toffee, somewhat sweet (maybe corn), with very low bitterness. No offensive flavors, this is a nice thirst quencher. Thanks Craig for picking this up at the 12 annual International Celiac Disease symposium in NYC.
