3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the DC Craft Beer Festival. Poured a pale yellow color without much of a head, perhaps not really a head at all on this one. Aroma was apples, sweet notes, some woody barrel character. Flavor was barrel, apple notes. Not bad, but the barrel didn’t improve this one too much, at least for me.
