mcberko (15436) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 20, 2013
750mL bottle, sent from LateStart (thanks Jordan), pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out pungent cedar upfront which dominates, a bit of citrus, but not much else this is all cedar on the nose. Flavour is similar, bringing out prominent cedar notes which dominate, with very light citrus notes. The cedar is monolithic in this, with a light body, leaving strong woody cedar notes. The best of the Dos Costas beers, but still nothing special.
