2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
Pours a hazy medium brown with a 1.5 finger head. Decent head retention.
Aroma is sweet grain. Pretty one dimensional.
The taste is much like the smell. Sweet grains dominate the palate with a bit of breadyness. Bitterness is fairly assertive but no hop flavors. Mouthfeel is medium to full.
This beer is just ok. I thought the flavor was lacking and could have used more maltiness.
