3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On the afternoon of Tuesday 17th May 2016 I visited The Tustin Brewery and had one of the most disappointing flights of beer I have ever had. Beer number seven of the eight and the best so far. Mahogany red with just a collar around the rim for a head. Malts rule this semi-sweet brew with molasses pushing through a caramel flavouring and aroma.

Tap at the brewpub. Pours ruddy brown with a beige head. Aroma is a little nutty with roasty malt. Med body. Flavor is a little nut, a little chocolate. Cross between amber and brown? Gets a citrus note in the finisf.
