3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Central City Winter Cask Fest ’13, pours a hazy dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma of spiced dark fruits, dry yeast and biscuity malts. Flavour is quite a bit darker tasting for a biere de garde, with notes of dark fruits, candied sugar, slight spices, yeast and biscuity notes. Fairly robust body for the style and drinks smoothly. Decent stuff.

Some citrus and some tangy peel. A little odd spice. Some florals. Ingredients don’t mesh well here. Tangy finish. Tap at brewpub.
