3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home, bought at Beer & Deli, Athens. Pours small, diminishing off-white head. Fair lacing. Medium to full body, oily texture, bitter finish, light in alcohol. Average malt presence, tints of caramel, bread, meal. Average hop presence, distinctive presence of citrus and orange peel, long lasting taste. Moderate sweetness, slightly acidic, well balanced sweetness and bitterness, somehow peppery aftertaste, and a hint of soapy aftertaste as time passes by. My very first TO OL brew turned out to be a very interesting ale!
