2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Transparent tea, puffy large bubbled white head collars nicely with thin cap. Muted mess of a nose, light mushroom and stable, warmth brings a lot of playdoh. Flavor is similarly funky, sauer kraut up front before burnt caramel and dough take over. Creamy body belies look, reinforces muted softness.

On tap at brewpub. Pours dark red with two finger off white head. Citrus, dark fruit, cherry, caramel, lagerish. Moderately bitter and sweet. Full, crisp body. I didn’t particularly care for it, though the beer is probably a good example of the style.
