2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A: The beer pours a light amber color with a finger of white head.
S: There is a light vinegar note up front which is quickly followed by butter and pancake syrup. There’s a little bit of a funky grass note and a touch of popcorn.
T: Quite a bit of popcorn flavor to it, and just as much grass and straw. A bit of lemon peel and vinegar give it the tartness. Still, that misplaced syrup, butter, and pancake flavor.
M: Light in body with medium carbonation.
O: So far, these Telegraph sours have been lackluster and this was no exception.
