3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle: Pours a clear deep copper amber with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasty dark caramel nose with some light citrus notes and mild oxidation. Starts with average fullness and sweet caramel malts with a decent amount of grassy and citrus hop flavor before a drier bittersweet finish. Body has a little more oxidation than I’d like and the bottle is fairly fresh.
