2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at the brewery. Lightly hazed amber with a fine white head. Stewed vienna malt toasted cereal aroma with noticeable cooked corn kernels and light lettuce and celery (vegetable barley soup smell). Medium bodied approach with a watery finish; low bitterness; medium sweetness; medium acid; chalky and sour yeast. Noticeable saccharine twang and lingering DMS carrot and turnip flavor in the finish. Very messy and unpalatable, though it really does look beautiful.
