2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy dark straw yellow with a soap-like off-white medium head. Pretty carbonated. Aroma of pale malt, sweet corn, hay and some Belgian yeast, alcohol and spices. Almost like a strong pale lager. A bit fruity flavour along with pear and some alcohol and hay. More disappointing. Has a light and slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A surprisingly characterless and boring ale.
