3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle into tulip glass. Attractive tan tight 1 finger head on top a beautiful dark red, clear body. Very nice to look at.
Aromas of red berry, yeasty, slightly dry bready, dry rye.
Reminds me of my early home brew days in a good way. Palate is short though, slightly sweet, slight liquorice.... very nice session beer, with a slight warming finish.
