SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 3, 2005
On tap at Barley’s Taphouse in Asheville, NC. Floral hop aroma. Dark gold with mild carbonation. Lots of gypsum, maybe too much. Bitterness is OK, but needs more malt in the body. The bartender claims that the name comes from the police scanner code for marijuana being "420." Anyone else heard this?
