2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draft @ brewpub. Dark brown and hazy. Smells sweet, malty, doughy with some spice in the background and some diacetyl too. Some inoffensive sourness on the palate, which is lightly fizzy and thin. Not bready at all, and pretty lame, thin, and flavorless. OK maybe some melba toast or similar crackers hanging round in the malt character but that’s about it.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Cloudy light chestnut. Very light head. Nutty, bready aroma. The taste is more sour than anything else. Not a top beer.
